A
party in love with death? (letter)


by Denise M. Cameron

News Weekly, December 11, 2010
Sir,

Regardless of the reasons for Labor's defeat at the Victorian polls, John Brumby and his government deserved it.

The first responsibility of good government is to protect human life. The Brumby Government failed this first test when they legalised abortion in 2008.

Another responsibility is to listen to the people. When the Brumby government invited the people to have their say on the matter, 84 per cent of the submissions to the Victorian Law Reform Commission were against it. They were arrogantly dismissed.

Now seven out of nine MPs who voted for the worst abortion law in the world and were targeted by pro-life activists with letterbox campaigns, have been dismissed.

When all about are asking if the Labor Party has lost its way, one wonders if today's Labor brand ever knew from where it came?

The revered Labor Party elder statesman and former Prime Minister Ben Chifley, of "Light on the Hill" inspiration, famously declared: "Any nation which cannot accept the unwanted or unplanned birth of a baby is a nation in love with death."

This nation is not in love with death. The tenacity of pro-life activists is testament to this.

Sadly, it is Ben Chifley's party which is in love with death.
