It’s a tragic reality that innocent babies born alive in failed abortions, are being left to die, denied the care and compassion they deserve!

We held a visual protest at Federal Parliament to ignite change.  We demanded that these precious lives be given the essential medical care and pain relief they need.

With your help, ACL setup more than 800 pairs of baby booties on the lawn of Parliament House, to represent babies that were left to die in Victoria and Queensland from 2010 to 2020.  On that count, one baby survives a failed abortion every week, and the national number is tragically even higher.

Once the visual protest concluded, the baby booties were donated to Calvary Hospital’s maternity unit in Bruce, ACT as well as pregnancy care organisations.


Over 1900 baby booties have been pledged by over 400 concerned supporters like you.


On the 2nd of June, Michelle Pearse – CEO and Wendy Francis – National Political Director, had the great privilege of addressing the Federal Senate Committee responsible for reviewing a crucial bill – Babies Born Alive Bill – aimed at safeguarding the lives of these vulnerable babies. Watch below…

As we await the release of the Senate Committee’s report on the Born Alive Bill, scheduled for 31st August, we are determined to make an impactful statement with the Baby Booties visual protest.


In a significant move, Senators Alex Antic, Matt Canavan, and Ralph Babet presented the Human Rights (Children Born Alive Protection) Bill 2022, originally proposed by the former Member for Dawson, George Christensen, to the Senate.
