No voice for unborn at Rudd summit (letter)

by Denise M. Cameron

News Weekly, May 10, 2008

The composition of the 1,000 participants selected to attend the 2020 Summit is even worse than suggested in your article, "Kevin Rudd's ideas summit looms" (Canberra Observed, News Weekly, April 12, 2008).

Because of the high rate of abortion, current available demography reveals that four million Australians are missing from our landscape and the life of our nation.

The recent call, now gathering momentum, for an international moratorium on abortion demonstrates such concern is not confined to Australia.

I would have thought that the inclusion of this issue, and representatives well versed in it, would have been an imperative for the 2020 Summit.

I personally saw to it that such competent representatives were nominated, but these nominations were deftly declined. Instead, obstetrician Dr Caroline de Costa - best known for being the first doctor to gain a licence to use RU-486 - was invited.

The unborn children subjected to this human pesticide will never see 2020. If the current annual abortion toll is maintained, 1,080,000 more young Australians will not be here to enjoy 2020.

Shame on the Summit 2020 for excluding a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves.

Denise M. Cameron,
President, Pro Life Victoria,
Hawthorn, Vic.
