Empowering young Australians to be a clear Christian voice
A bill to recognise a 20-week-old unborn baby as a person needs your support!
The Crimes Amendment (Zoe’s Law) Bill (No 2) 2013, introduced by Chris Spence into the Legislative Assembly two weeks ago (29/8/13), is facing huge opposition from radical feminist forces. They see the legislation as a threat to the absolute right to abortion – even though medical procedures are specifically excluded from the bill.
As a result, radical groups like the Women’s Electoral Lobby, Family Planning NSW and Destroy the Joint are joining forces to defeat this important legislation. MLAs and MLCs are being inundated with emails and letters urging them to oppose it. Debate could continue this Thursday (19/9/13).
The bill is called Zoe’s Law after baby Zoe, who was killed when her mother Brodie Donegan was eight months pregnant. A driver, high on methadone and valium, ran into Brodie on Christmas Day 2009. The driver was charged with assaulting Brodie, but not with killing Zoe – because the law does not recognise her as a person.
Can you write an email to your MLA and all MLCs, urging them to support Zoe’s Law?
You could say (in your own words) something like:
• This bill would recognise the 20-week-old unborn child as a person. This is in line with current death laws which allow for legal recognition of a stillborn foetus after 20 weeks.
• This bill works within the framework of existing grievous bodily harm offences, and excludes medical procedures.
• This bill recognises the value of the unborn child.
