Is Our Society Turning Against Women’s Choice For Abortions?

August 18, 2012

A Christian friend who I highly respect blurted out the words: “I don’t get the Greens. On the one hand they want to protect animal species but then they support abortion so they’re destroying another species!” I said with amazement: you mean humans? She replied: Yes!

Well I was gobsmacked! This normally moderate and highly respected (by me) Christian is suddenly coming out with extreme statements. She wants to enforce her views on all women of Australia, to take away their right to choose whether to have an abortion or not. This is bullying to the extreme. Nanny state at its best. Government interfering with womens bodies.

If the Greens are out of place defending basic women’s rights, who will? Brand Labor is shattered right across Australia. Most of my colleagues have turned against all things Labor, even if the thing is sensible and the alternative thing is illogical.

The Greens earned power. Many women, minority groups, and those who care for the vulnerable, voted Green.

Are these the first signs of moderate Christians becoming extremists? In today’s climate, does it seem sensible and reasonable for the Government to be given extra powers to force women to have babies? Maybe it does. Maybe all this talk about “nanny state” by the conservatives against the Left is just a smoke screen for what is soon to come?

    It’s happening everywhere. Hunt in UK is on that path – a hidden right wing agenda
