UPDATED: THE TIMEFRAME FOR PUBLIC SUBMISSIONS HAS BEEN EXTENDED UNTIL MIDNIGHT TONIGHT!!!
Submissions close in:
Last week the NSW abortion-to-birth bill passed the parliament’s lower house.
But you can take action today and, God willing, help save unborn lives.
We are now entering a new phase of the abortion debate.
This week, the draft law will be sent to a committee to look in detail at the bill.
The committee has called for written submissions from members of the public.
Please act TODAY by making a brief, written submission to the Inquiry, calling for the bill to be rejected or failing that, amended.
Here are some points you might like to make:
- This bill would legalise abortion on the basis of sex-selection. Meaning healthy baby girls could be aborted simply because the parents want a boy.
- The bill would force doctors and nurses to participate in an abortion, even if they object to abortion on ethical or religious grounds.
- The bill allows open-slather abortion, including late term after 22 weeks.
- There is no mandatory requirement for counselling in the bill, which might provide women with an opportunity to discuss more options.
- There is no requirement that neonatal care be given to a child born alive as a consequence of undergoing an abortion procedure.
- There is currently no requirement that medical practitioners report abortion procedures performed on girls under 16 years to the Secretary of the Department of Communities and Justice.
