Abortion

To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives

This petition of a group of citizens of Australia draws the attention of the House to the need for respect for the sanctity of human life.

In some States of Australia late term abortion is being practised even though God's word says, "You created my inmost being, You knit me together in my mother's womb." Even life in the womb is sacred to God.

Alberto Guibilini and Francesca Minerva argued in The Journal of Medical Ethics that there can be nothing wrong with infanticide if there is nothing wrong with abortion. How far can these ideas go.

Euthanasia is now on the agenda to be discussed in Parliament as a viable way of dealing with severe suffering. Surely pain management is preferable.

We as citizens of Australia ask the House to protect our nation from adopting any of these as law. We want a righteous nation with laws that honour God.
