You can make a tremendous difference in the outcome of abortion and euthanasia in our country. You may have asked yourself 'what can one person do?' Well, you won't be doing it all: you will be joining with thousands of other Australians who no longer wish to live with the status quo but wish to live in a country where all human life is respected and valued!

Together, we can make a difference!

Ways that you can help:

  • Financially support our work and give to a cause that keeps on giving.
  • Join in our regular events and stand up for life.
  • Put a pro-life bumper sticker on your car.
  • Write letters to your MP, both state and federal on the issues of abortion, euthanasia and embryonic stem cell abuse. These letters don't have to be long. Simply tell them your position on these issues and tell them how you would like them to vote or act on your behalf.
  • Visit to your local markets or garage sales and purchase baby/maternity clothes to donate to your nearest pregnancy help centre.
  • Spread the pro-life message with literature. At Right to Life Australia we have a range of flyers and leaflets on life issues that are excellent for sharing with family and friends.
  • Write letters to the editor.
  • Arrange for a pro-life speaker to do a presentation for your club, school, church or civic group.
  • Consider adoption or foster care.

Lobbying - A 'How To' Guide

Writing a Letter

Non-profit organisations rely greatly on mail campaigns to gain political support. Whether you are organising a mail campaign or writing just one letter, it is important to keep in mind that there are many lobby groups clamouring for attention, so give careful thought to your letter.

Effective use of research can help you convey your position to politicians, the public and members.

Credible data can complement personal stories and anecdotes about your cause, thereby making your point more convincing.

Gathering research and pulling out the important points that support your position, as well as points that negate the argument of those who oppose your position, will help you to gain supporters for your cause.

Know the Legislative Process & Players

  1. A bill is introduced in at least one chamber of the legislature.
  2. It is then assigned to the committee(s) that oversees the issue addressed by the bill.
  3. Sometimes, a committee refers a bill to a subcommittee for deeper consideration.

Make a Personal Visit

Politicians want to hear from you. The first time you meet your politician face to face, you may be nervous. Keep in mind, however, that politicians and their staff people repeatedly say that the information non-profits provide is important to their decisions, so don’t be afraid to voice your message.
