There comes a time - Martin Luther King JR.www.precioustreasures.com.au

The purpose of this post to help spread awareness of the new Infant Viability Bill which was introduced into Victoria’s State Parliament in October 2015, by Dr Rachel Carling-Jenkins. Since 2008 Victoria's State Parliament introduced the most draconian abortion laws in Australia, and in the world. (See Abortion Law Reform Act 2008) The saddest thing next to this law being passed is that the general Victorian population is unaware of how severe the abortion issue is here. The time hasn’t come quickly enough to do something about it.

Accurate statistics on abortion in Australia is difficult to find because it seems that no precise figures are kept on abortion anywhere in Australia. The three most populous States, NSW, Victoria and Queensland do not keep any statistics on abortion; And although WA, SA and NT collect abortion statistics it only reflects abortions from which a Medicare rebate has been claimed. Some information can be found on the internet, most of which is not current data but may give an idea of how many abortions have been carried out in Australia. What happens in this procedure? What happens in failed abortions where babies are born alive? Does the unborn baby feel any pain? What happens to the bodies and pieces of aborted babies? What of the effects of this surgery on the mother? How much information and/or support is given to the mother? What are the reasons for each abortion and what are the statistics per reason?

We can find a mountain of statistics from the AIHW (Authoritative information and statistics to promote better health and well-being), over a variety of categories, such as Surgery in Australia – we can find out who had the surgery, and how many were involved in emergency or elective admissions, the reasons for the admissions, and the care that was provided … but no statistics on abortion.

We can find statistics on which animals are responsible for causing the most human deaths in Australia (NCIS); or from the RSPCA we can find national statistics on Animals received by each RSPCA Society and reasons for euthanasia of dogs and cats etc …but something as sacred as human life within the womb, and the life carrying the unborn baby, seems to have no significance or importance here at all. What of the woman who is about to go through the abortion surgery – what of the health, well-being and care for her? Where are the statistics? Members in government don’t want to know how many unborn babies have been aborted, the reasons for the abortion, how many have been born alive and left to die, or even the physical, emotional and mental health effects this operation may have on the mother. They can avoid collecting statistics and ignore it all but the facts backed by medical science are still present, they will stand and won’t go away even if not collected in a tidy statistical format.

It is time now to help spread awareness of the new Infant Viability Bill which was introduced into Victoria’s State Parliament in October 2015, by Dr Rachel Carling-Jenkins.

As stated on the website –

This is the first formal attempt at pro-life legislation in Victoria in decades, and the first legislative attempt to remedy the abortion law reforms of 2008.

Under this Bill:
• Abortions would no longer be allowed from the 20th week of pregnancy.
• Infant viability will be promoted and supported (all infants born alive from the 20th week of pregnancy on-wards, including as the result of a medical emergency, must be cared for with the intent to save the infant’s life if at all possible).
• Mothers who are at least 20 weeks pregnant, who present in distress to their doctor must be offered practical support, for example a referral to a pregnancy support service offering holistic care (such as counselling, social and practical support).
• Penalties will be introduced for physicians who breach the new laws and for medical facilities in which the laws are breached.
• Mothers will not be criminalised or face any penalties.

Come and join the good fight and lend your support behind this worthwhile cause and help get this Bill passed. Watch this video, visit the Infant Viability Bill website (and register to keep up-to-date with the news) and please pass it on to others.

Children are our Precious Treasures. At any stage of life from conception to old age they're always yours. Whatever life throws at us we try to cope and I guess we do as best we can, because what else could we do?
Understanding, compassion, loving, being there - these are some of the words that come to mind when thinking about Surviving miscarriage and stillbirth. I've not gone through this kind of tragedy but have close friends who have.

Here is an interview on the Today Show with the founder of the stillbirth foundation Emma McLeod who advises on how to cope with a miscarriage and stillbirth.

Surviving miscarriage and stillbirth

There are 100,000+ babies aborted in Australia each year ... that's 100,000+ babies who are killed, torn limb by limb from their mother's womb, suffering excruciating pain before they die. Then there are those who are born alive after a failed abortion and are left to die in a dish or the garbage bin.

Take a look at the MCG - 100,000 people will fill this sporting ground to capacity - that's how many Austrlians will never be born to live their life, to love & be loved, to learn, to contribute to our society........ teachers, doctors, scientists, great sportsmen/women, inventors,  social workers, performers, artists, charity workers ...... we will never know them ...... Australia will never be better off for having killed them..

Where are we heading?

Eliminating legal protection for some, weakens legal protection for everyone.

                                                            Peter Kavanagh MLC for Western Victoria.

If life is not respected from conception, how can life be respected at any stage ..... street bashings & violence is only the beginning..... but we can change this.

Saturday the 10th October was the first anniversary of the Victorian Parliament passing the Abortion Law Reform Act – one of the most extreme abortion laws in the world. It’s a day we probably wouldn’t want to remember but we do because of the lives involved. In remembrance of this day a march was organised by  March For The Babies – their goal is to overturn this terrible law and provide full legal protection to our most vulnerable Victorians.

March for the Babies was established with the assistance of representatives from leading pro-life groups throughout Victoria. Our goal is to promote an annual day of remembrance and peaceful witness to affirm the right to life of every unborn child, assist women in crisis pregnancies and allow freedom of conscience for healthcare workers opposed to abortion

The march progressed peacefully from the Ftizroy Gardens along Flinders, Exhibition & Bourke streets towards Parliament House. Did you hear about it in the media? No? The media are not interested in giving air time to this matter nor are the newspapers. A march of this size is ignored …… However, the Pro-Life movement will not go away & pro-life activites will not stop. Eventually the public will learn the truth & the media will not be able to ignore this seriously imprtant issue.

More than 20,000 babies are killed in Victoria each year via abortion. This extreme Abortion Law Reform Act although passed in the State of Victoria does not isolate the remaining States & Territories from being next in line. Politicians are watching closely to see what happens here and how the people of Victoria react to this horrendous law.

Pro-Life movements have sprung up in huge numbers in victoria – I don’t know if having too many groups is a good or effective thing but one thing is for sure – we’re not going to sit quietly and forget about it …. and we won’t let the pro-abortion politicians forget about it either.

Following the Victorian Abortion Law Reform Act, Life Vote was formed to campaign against the defeat pro-abortion MPs at the 2010 State election.   Hence the catch-cry Today We March, Tomorrow We Vote.

The numbers will increase as this cause will spread via word-of-mouth and the internet. Please visit the above web sites and offer your support in anyway possible.

Youth for Life Australia now has a web site. It’s only just gone live so more information will be added to each category as time goes on.

The youth of Australia are on fire with the fight against legalised abortion in Victoria. Their aim is to have an abortion free Australia and they will keep working on it until that goal is reached …. and beyond to keep it that way.  Here is an excerpt from their About Us page …..

Youth for Life is committed to educating this generation with the truth about human life and exposing the lies of the abortion industry. Our members are dedicated to activating this generation to take a stand for the most innocent of Australian citizens who are slaughtered every day by the abortion holocaust. Youth For Life understand the importance of training the youth of Australia and empowering them with the knowledge needed to combat the death camps of this nation. We will not allow apathy to grip Australia as innocent human beings are being killed in the name of choice. …… more

Please do visit Youth for Life and take a look around. This work is all voluntary by the youth. You may wish to support them in some way ….. prayers are always needed.

The Freedom to be Born march brought out a few thousand people last Saturday. A well organised and peaceful march through the streets of Melbourne’s CBD. It was lovely to see a great mumber of youth also taking part. There were many wonderful slogans to try and get the message across to women, pro-abortion groups and of course our State politicians –

Abortion has two victims: one dead and one wounded.

Abortion the Culture of Death

The Consequences of Abortions are Worse than you Think

Student Drs say Don’t Force Innocent Blood on our Hands

If you don’t want babies, don’t mate

Support mothers not abortion

We’re not allowed to kill a posum in our roof but we can kill a baby in the womb?

The pro-abortion group (I know they prefer to be called pro-choice but to me that sounds contradictory as the unborn has no choice) turned up as we gathered around the steps of Parliament House. They were a small group of only about 100 or so, and making a lot of noise. I believe they were due to have there gathering at 1pm but decided to gatecrash the pro-life one instead. Unfortunately their manners matched their character as Madeleine spoke giving her testimony of her abortion experience as a young teen. If only the pro-abortion group would have stopped to listen to her they may have picked up on her pain & suffering.

I met many beautiful people on the march. One young girl held up a sign which she explained – her little brother was born at 25 weeks, and he survived. He is now eight years old. If a baby can survive such a premature birth how can anyone say he is not a ‘human being’? 

We will continue to fight on for life and against the decriminalisation of abortion. We must also work at ‘educating’ people about abortion – the facts and consequences of this procedure as well as the fact that science proves that a baby IS a human being from conception and although he/she needs their mother’s womb they are independant of her.

I won’t go into discussion and facts as there are many wonderful web sites where one can research and learn more, and where women can also find support. Please take a look at some of them.

On September 9th 2008, in the State parlaiment of Victoria, the debate to legalise abortion begins. You need to read The Abortion Law Reform Bill (Vic) 2008  to understand that it is an absolutely horrible legislation.

On September 6th Right to Life Australia has organised to march against this bill. Mark it on your calendar and organise your family, friends & supporters of all ages. This is not a time for being silent or hoping that ‘someone else’ will take care of things. It’s a time where our faith must be put into action. This debate is far too serious to ‘leave it to someone else’ to do the work to fight against it. Your voice must be heard.

The Freedom to be Born March will begin at 10.30am, Saturday September 6th.  Assemble at the Treasury Gardens – the Spring St. side.

Bring your own banners & placards or collect them from RTL on site on the day of the march.

The march is expected to finish approx 12.30 pm …. and the pro-abortion march will begin at 1pm.

This will be a peaceful march. If you can’t join the march, please pray.
