Navigating the nefarious pro-choice ideology…
On the 8th of February, 3500 people rallied in South Australia, against the extreme abortion-to-birth laws before their Parliament.

As is the norm in our society, the mainstream media have portrayed them as ‘Trump-styled’, according to a report by the Advertiser — an opportunistic dig for unsuspecting readers, as some sort of alarm that their views around human life are outdated and misogynistic. This is far from the truth.
South Australia is one of the last states to pass laws to allow abortion to birth. Media outlets covered the Walk For Life, including Channel 7, who launched a poll on Facebook after the rally, asking, ‘Do you want to see abortion fully decriminalised in South Australia?’
It’s fair to assume that South Australians could be unaware that at present, abortion is currently under the Criminal Law Act. The proposed changes to these laws would move it under the Health Care Act.
The question posed by Channel 7 appears misleading. According to the public response in the comments section on the poll, respondents indicated that the question is ambiguous, and could be interpreted as supporting the pro-life view with a ‘yes’ vote.

It’s incumbent on the pro-life community to say no to abortion-to-birth. Decriminalisation in South Australia would allow abortion-to-birth laws to be passed. The Hon Clare Scriven MLC, who spoke at the Walk For Life rally, said it well:
“Dehumanising the baby in utero is dehumanising all of us;
framing it as a woman’s choice is a weapon used by perpetrators
who do not support women at all and hide behind the language of ‘choice’.”
Recommendations from the South Australian Law Reform Institute [SALRI] from October 2019 include that abortion can be undertaken at any gestational stage with one healthcare practitioner — also known as abortion-to-birth.
But the recommendations don’t stop there: any healthcare practitioner can perform an abortion — in one instance, the report mentions ‘Chinese medicine’. Apparently, gynaecologists/specialists aren’t a necessary factor?
The SALRI also recommends that there should be no prohibitions surrounding sex-selection abortions, which seems to go against the very notion of women’s rights, when sex selection is primarily performed to eliminate a girl.
Julie Sharpe, a counsellor who spoke at the rally, said rhetorically [referring to women who have had an abortion],
“I would like to know who has been sitting opposite me in the counselling room for the last 20 years, pouring out their heart, crying and weeping with overwhelming sadness.
As if there is no such thing as adverse mental health connected with abortion?”
“I took the lives of two of my children, I robbed my parents of grandchildren, I took the lives of my son’s siblings. These abortions directly caused a medical condition known as incompetent cervix, which resulted in premature birth of another son, who died after a week long struggle in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) in 2001. The suffering I have endured is immeasurable, and the guilt almost drove me to suicide.”
We celebrate women’s choice, but fail to see the horrific consequences and repercussions of abortion.
It’s time to be a voice for the voiceless.
