Pro-life action needed in Australia
edit_button

I doubt many readers here are from Australia, but I have been following the legislature there. And, unfortunately, their senate, in a 45-28 vote, passed a bill that would legalize the abortion drug RU-486.

This abortion drug must not be made legal! Abortion is murder. Referring to RU 486, Cardinal Francis George of Chicago said, "It’s a pill that brings death. That’s strange medicine."

From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

2319 - Every human life, from the moment of conception until death, is sacred because the human person has been willed for its own sake in the image and likeness of the living and holy God.
2322 - From its conception, the child has the right to life. Direct abortion, that is, abortion willed as an end or as a means, is a "criminal" practice (GS 27 § 3), gravely contrary to the moral law. The Church imposes the canonical penalty of excommunication for this crime against human life.
2323 - Because it should be treated as a person from conception, the embryo must be defended in its integrity, cared for, and healed like every other human being.

Let us pray that this abortion drug will not pass their House of Representatives. The Prime Minister of Australia, John Howard, is expeceted to vote against the legalization of the drug.

Hey Moneybags:)
the 'law' was passed by the lower house, it will now go to the senate where a vote will be taken soon.
Some Senators and Pro Choice females wore this on their T-Shirts, 'get your Rosaries off my Ovaries'..how nice *sigh*!

Here is an extract from a publication. PRAY that the doctors will make this STAND..as it will leave the medical system in Queensland in dissaray....Maybe that will make the politicians re-think!

"MORE than 200 Catholic doctors are threatening to quit the Australian Medical Association (AMA), angry at the group's stance on the controversial abortion inducing drug RU486.

The Queensland based doctors believe Health Minister Tony Abbott, who is against abortion outright, should not be stripped of his powers in deciding on individual applications by Australian women to access the drug.

But the AMA is pushing for an effective ban on RU486 to be lifted, arguing the drug should be in the hands of the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) – the body which controls all other drugs in Australia.

The angry doctors, all members of the Guild of St Luke, are meeting this weekend to vote on whether to resign from the AMA and the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.

Two doctors have already resigned from the AMA over RU486."

Pray for Australia.

Peace of Christ to you ALL

'get your Rosaries off my Ovaries'

So that's where I left that thing.
What a stupid, stupid mantra.

I hope you get a chance to read my pro life story. I hope others do as well and pass the message on that life must be held and not destroyed and that there are options not murders to be committed
