The Cost of Body Parts
The Cost of Body Parts..
Troy Newman, of Operation Rescue in the U.S.A and Board Member-(Centre for Medical Progress USA) and his colleagues have struck a highly effective blow at the hugely lucrative abortion industry in the U.S. headed by Planned Parenthood. They have worked undercover to expose the growing sale of parts of babies aborted late in pregnancy – body parts to be used in research and sold for profit.
Operation Rescue’s activists have caused a storm of protest in the U.S. and worldwide. Legislative action is afoot in some U.S. State legislatures and in U.S. Congress as a result. Currently our Federal government funds Planned Parenthood which works in providing “aid” in the form of “family planning” which would include provision of abortions. Isn’t it time we saw some real action on behalf of the unborn in this country?
Frankly our M.P.s need a big wake-up call!

“This house requires the legal and social issues committee to inquire into, consider and report, no later than 31 May 2016, on the need for laws in Victoria to allow citizens to make informed decisions regarding their own end-of-life choices, and in particular the committee should -
(1) Assess the practices currently being utilised within the medical community to assist a person to exercise their preferences for the way they want to manage their end-of-life, including the role of palliative care.
