I notice that the Green Party have put the peddle to the metal in an effort to convince the NSW Government to pursue Abortion Law Reform in NSW. As is to be expected of the Greens in general, and of Lee Rhiannon in particular, the proposal is weak and ill-considered.
When Lee Rhiannon refers to the slaughter of little girls as a feminist and humane initiative, surely there is something wrong with her thinking?. When Lee Rhiannon can describe the opportunity to kill off future Australian women as a feminist victory, surely it is time for Australian women to show her the door.
The NSW Parliament has a responsibility to administer justice. This includes a direct responsibility to protect the lives of its constituents regardless of age (as yet unborn) and location (inside the womb). Already, the most likely cause of death in NSW is abortion. The most unsafe place in NSW is the womb. These things ought not be so.
Lee Rhiannon believes that the current laws put women at risk [of prosecution]. This is purely inane. It’s like saying that the current laws regarding rape put rapists at risk. The number of abortions is not the issue, nor is the timing or the means by which they are procured. The issue is that, in order for a Government to be truly just, the gift of life must always outweigh the risk of prosecution faced by those who disregard it.
Despite the slogans put out by the Greens, its not “My mind, my body, my choice”. It’s the mind and body of an entirely distinct individual and therefore it’ not “a matter of choice” but of responsibility.
Stick insects have been known to kill their young at birth. How long will it be before we are doing the same?
