It has happened again...last time it was Abortion Provider Jo Wainer, before that it was Abortion Advocate Beatrice Faust ..and before that Wendy McCarthy of another abortion lobby, the Women's Electoral Lobby. Meantime, nominations of advocates for the rights of unborn children are rejected.
Below is the text of a letter I had published in Melbourne's Age newspaper on June 17 which may help you frame your protest at this outrage. We did so last time ...but we must not give up. If ever there was a time to remember Edmund Burke's words “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men and women to do nothing”, it is now.
"Surely it is an insult to the Queen that those responsible for recommendations for her Birthday Honours would include so many Australians who would
prefer to see their fellow Australians dead? Former premier Joan Kirner was honoured for founding Emily's List which pursued and succeeded in the 2008 passage of the most pitiless abortion legislation in the world. Dr Pieter Mourik was active locally in promoting the legislation and National Party MP Jeanette Powell disappointed her conservative constituents by voting for it. Professor Peter Singer is “infamous” for suggesting infanticide might be a good way to go.
Abortion Provider Jo Wainer got a gong last time. Overseeing all these these recommendations is Governor Quentin Bryce with her own record of pro abortion activism. Amongst all those listed is there one genuine “human rights”, “social justice” activist? Someone who has defended unborn children, Australia' s most vulnerable citizens, by helping their mothers choose life, not death for them?
These are the words of an email I received yesterday from an unknown supporter demonstrating we do have friends out there who appreciate our efforts: “ I’m writing to congratulate you on your letter published in the Sunday Age June 17th. It is about time that the truth was told about such people as our former Premier Joan Kirner, Dr Pieter Mourik, Jeanette Powell, Peter Singer and Quentin Bryce. None of these is a supporter of human rights for so long as they continue to support inhumane abortion legislation. Well done.”
