With less than a month to go before the Victorian election, there are many potential issues to weigh up and party policies to consider to cast an informed vote. An excellent pre-election video posted on YouTube is asking people to seriously consider how the issue of abortion should form a key part of their deliberations on the suitability for election of the various candidates.

The video features extensive commentary from Peter Kavanagh MLC, DLP Member for Western Victoria on the tragedy of the Abortion Law Reform Act 2008, which allows a woman to terminate the life of her unborn child for any reason up until 24 weeks of pregnancy, and with the consent of two abortionists at any time after that, even until birth.

A special part of the video is comments from Melissa Ohden, a young American woman who lived to tell the story of her mother’s failed abortion attempt. She recently toured the country sharing her inspiring story with supporters of life in Australia, and explains why Victoria’s abortion law is one of the most extreme in the world.
