DLP Senator John Madigan is pushing for the Federal Government to cease funding gender-based abortions in Australia and overseas through foreign aid programs.
He should be congratulated for this and he is a true example for pro-life politicians.
He has so far received very little support and the general media commentary has been very negative.
Writing in the The Age, Stephanie Peatling accuses Senator Madigan’s desire to protect the life of girls as ‘grubby politics‘.
The Greens have also attacked him for his stance, saying that it is an impost on women’s rights. A strange thing to say when you consider that gender-based abortions occur primarily to prevent women from living.
Despite this, no one has yet had the courage to come forward and argue that funding of gender-based abortions is a good use of the taxpayers’ dollar.
So we will probably see more cases of gender-based abortion in Australia – like the Melbourne couple who terminated the pregnancy of their twin boys. If that doesn’t make you outraged, consider that your tax dollars paid for the initial IVF program in the first place.
However, Sonja Couroupis has written an excellent article in the Online Opinion forum today, asking why feminists are silent about the death of millions of baby girls around the world – all killed because of their gender.
If you want heart-wrenching proof that this is occurring, watch this short trailer here. Watch until the end – you will be horrified.
