“We hear much of the self-acclaimed achievements of the Andrews’ Labor government for its roads, tunnels, level crossings, overhead rail and the nightly promises on TV of much largesse for more of the same. Yet, the sad reality is that, as a government it deserves to be roundly condemned for its brutal denial of the most basic of human rights – the Right to Life itself,” said Margaret Tighe, President of Right to Life Australia.
Ms Tighe said, “It was Labor in Victoria that legalised and now advertises the availability of abortions from the beginning of human life in the womb to just prior to birth!”*
She went on, “Now – the Andrews’ Labor government has moved on with its contempt for human life in legalising physician-assisted suicide or euthanasia – despite overwhelming evidence from those few countries that practise it – of the dangers in doing so - to those who have not asked for it.”
“There is only one reason the British Parliament overwhelmingly voted against it (in 2015),” said Mrs Tighe, “Simply because it has proved too dangerous for the aged and infirm.”
Ms Tighe said the Right to Life Australia is campaigning asking for a vote against Labor in Mulgrave, Frankston, Carrum and Bentleigh and also against Independent Suzanna Sheed in Shepparton who voted for the euthanasia bill.
“To add insult to injury,” she added, “The Herald Sun (4/11/18) reported that the Andrews’ government plans to advertise a “helpline” for those seeking death from their doctor!”
