Today I have been in Darwin presenting to a parliamentary hearing into their proposed Sex Industry Bill.
I listened while panel members discussed how advertising would be handled under the proposed Bill. They spoke of the need for clients to know what the product is they are getting. The product is people.
Debate has resumed on the NSW abortion bill, and the Parliament will now consider the most important issue - late term abortion.
Adelaide, SA, “the city of churches”, but right now the city and state are being besieged by ungodly legislation – the prostitution decriminalisation bill, a surrogacy bill and we are awaiting the South Australian Law Reform Institute's report into abortion law reform. The Liberal party Attorney-General seems determined to enact as much destructive legislation as she can, and is front and centre in promoting all of these.
Wonder at life has been responsible for many of the questions humans have pondered throughout the ages.
The debate over life itself is raging in the Queensland parliament right now. Last Friday in our Parliament House, I gave testimony to the Committee overseeing the inquiry, which will either recommend or not the introduction of euthanasia laws in Queensland.
The news on Saturday 24 August that the SA Police Commissioner, Grant Stevens considers that the Prostitution Decriminalisation Bill (which decriminalises pimping and protects pimps) would place community safety at risk and allow organised crime to flourish, and the news that organised crime syndicates are operating in the SA prostitution industry, means that that House of Assembly should reject the Bill. As the editorial in the Advertiser last Saturday stated, lower house MPs should listen to the Commissioner.
Recently I gave my extended thoughts on the NSW abortion bill. It has since passed the lower house of the NSW Parliament.
Beneath that fact lies some detail that many won’t know about.
As many know, ACL is fighting the anti-women prostitution decriminalisation bill sponsored by Attorney General Vickie Chapman. We are in reach of significant policy reform for prostituted women in South Australia. I am writing to thank you, and encourage you to keep going!
This is a tough topic so buckle yourselves in.
The NSW Parliament is in a rush to decriminalise abortion up to birth. Our NSW supporters can act now to stop this happening.
