Comments from Ms Julie Bates on 6PR last night urging decriminalisation of prostitution in Western Australia have today been criticised by the Australian Christian Lobby.
“Decriminalisation has always led to increased demand, which fuels human sex trafficking. We should learn from those failures,” commented Peter Abetz, the ACL’s state director.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk promised the state government wouldn’t look at euthanasia legislation during this term, making her policy backflip at the weekend during Labor’s state conference even more concerning, said the Australian Christian Lobby.
Thousands of pro-life supporters turned out this afternoon for the March for Life through Brisbane CBD, in opposition to Jackie Trad’s radical abortion bill.
A bill to allow altruistic surrogacy access for male same-sex couples and single men will deliberately remove the rights of children to know their biological parents.
The Australian Christian Lobby is concerned that this will only serve to commodify children and further exploit women.
A recommendation from the WA Law Reform Commission to remove children’s biological sex from birth certificates has been criticised by the Australian Christian Lobby.
“The recommendation raises significant concerns regarding the medical implications of removing important biological information from a legal document,” commented Peter Abetz, ACL’s state director.
The Australian Christian Lobby today extended congratulations to Prime Minister elect Scott Morrison.
Martyn Iles, ACL’s managing director said, “We look forward to continuing our constructive conversation with the government on religious freedom.”
“It’s now been over three months since the Ruddock Review was released. Religious freedom must be a priority for the Morrison ministry in light of increasing numbers of Australians who are getting in trouble with the law for living out their faith.”
“ACL also urges the government to follow it's commendable legacy of securing Australia's borders with a solution to the humanitarian crisis on Nauru and Manus Island, where hundreds of asylum seekers have languished for five years.”
Mr Iles said that ACL trusts Mr Morrison will demonstrate the strong leadership required for a new era of political stability.
