Reproduced from Society for the Protection of Unborn Children. London, United Kingdom 22 August 2019

SPUC has questioned the figures surrounding abortion survivors in the United Kingdom, after it has emerged that at least 40 babies were born alive after failed abortion attempts between 2016 and 2018 across three American states.

The new state data has been described as ‘disturbing’ by SPUC Chief Executive, John Smeaton, after it revealed that following failed abortions, 19 babies were born alive in Florida, 11 in Minnesota and 10 in Arizona across a period of three years.

Our Counsellors Continue To Stand In The Gap


Please take the enclosed flyer and place in your church, office or other venue to encourage women (and men) to utilise our life saving service

Our counsellors continue to stand in the gap for women facing an unplanned pregnancy. The prevailing worldview loudly proclaims: “My Body, My Choice”. It is not politically correct to even suggest that may be terminating the life of an unborn baby is not morally right. Yet when women are personally in that position of experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, they can be very conflicted.

"Today we have a choice set before us that goes to the core of who we are and who we want to be, a choice that will define us as a parliament, as a place and as a people. That choice is whether we recognise that the unborn also have human rights. I believe the purpose of this Parliament is not to be a platform for the privileged but a voice for the voiceless vulnerable who cannot speak up for themselves. On this issue the supporters of the bill are ignoring that obligation. They are also on the wrong side of history."

Dr Gillespie urges Nationals colleagues to consider state abortion bill carefully

Carla Mascarenhas ~ Excerpt Reproduced from Wauchope Gazette 21/8/19

Federal member for Lyne Dr David Gillespie had this to say: He believes the legislation is unnecessary because abortion was "decriminalised in 1971 and it is not a crime if you have a lawful abortion in NSW".

In recent weeks, the former Nationals party leader, Hon Barnaby Joyce MP who now sits on the backbench, has taken a leading role in the fight against the push to decriminalise abortion in NSW.

The NSW Abortion Debate 2019

Australia has recently been reminded of its disgraceful record on government-funded abortions with the NSW parliament engaged in a fiery debate over the total legislation of abortion until birth!

 To our utter disgrace this is now the situation in Victoria, Tasmania and Queensland with South Australia poised to follow suit after the usual "government inquiry".


  • Contact your MP's asking them to vote against the WA government's euthanasia bill soon to be introduced into the WA parliament in August. (see enclosed list of Parliamentarians)
  • This follows the passage of similar legislation in the Victorian parliament.
  • Patients in WA will be able to have their lives ended if medical opinion is that they will die in less than 12 months from a terminal illness.
  • The WA bill will even allow a nurse practitioner to give the green light to euthanasia as a second opinion.

Palliative care work will endure

We won’t let the introduction of voluntary assisted dying overshadow our ongoing commitment to the sick. By Natasha Michael ,The Age 23/05/19

What matters most? Over the past week, Australians have contemplated this very question as they pondered their future and cast their votes at the federal election. Palliative Care Week calls for Australians to consider once again: what matters most?

How Jesse’s Life Was Saved

I was 20 weeks pregnant as I walked into a women’s imaging centre with my husband and one-year-old daughter. We were excited to find out if we were having a little boy or girl. What we did find out caused my world to shatter.

Voluntary euthanasia is a threshold moment for Australia, and one we should not cross

“There is probably no more important issue in contemporary bioethics or a more serious ethical decision for our parliaments than that raised by the Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill 2017 being debated this week in the Victorian Parliament.  Under this bill, conditions and safeguards are outlined that will allow physicians to terminate the life of patients and to assist patients to take their own life. This is a threshold moment for the country. No matter what justifications are offered for the bill, it constitutes an unacceptable departure in our approach to human existence and the irrevocable sanctity that should govern our understanding of what it means to be human.
