Queensland Rally for Life, Saturday 22nd February
· February 12, 2014 11:00 AM
Join in this year's
Rally for Life
in Queensland and hear ACL's Wendy Francis speak on her personal experience of the blessings for all who choose life.
purpose of the rally is to send a strong message to the Queensland government that abortion should not be legalised in the state. Currently abortion is still illegal in the state for doctors and women unless a doctor believes a woman’s physical and/or mental health is in danger. Last year the Tasmanian government removed abortion from the criminal code into the health code which will make it easier to obtain an abortion in the state (see ACL’s media release
Sad Day for the Unborn in Tasmania
Also speaking at the Rally for Life event is Margaret Tighe and Tim Rushbrook. Margaret is president of Right to Life Australia and has played a prominent role in the campaign to uphold the right to life of all human beings. Tim is the father of a child with Downs Syndrome, the most targeted disability pre-birth.
