Too tough on Tony Abbott? (letter)


by Frank Pulsford

News Weekly, April 3, 2010
Sir,

You were a bit tough on Tony Abbott ("Tony Abbott's faux pas alienates allies", News Weekly, March 20) over his response to the repeated questions about his attitude to abortion.

Until the church leaders of all denominations start making a difference and creating a climate in society where sound legislation can flourish, a pro-life Christian politician has only one alternative to an answer such as Abbott's - go and get another job and leave the parliamentary benches to the secular humanists.

Initially, I recoiled at Abbott's adoption of Bill Clinton's phrase; but, in reality, it was quite clever. The secular press did not criticise Clinton, so how can they criticise Abbott?

Abbott's stated view is that abortions should be rare and they should be safe. Until the bishops, priests and ministers of all religions do their jobs and bring about a change in public opinion, that's about as good as you are going to get from a politician who wants to remain in politics.

Frank Pulsford,
Aspley, Qld
