Earlier this month it was revealed that 27 West Australian babies who survived abortions over a 17-year period were left to die without any medical care*. Twenty-one of the babies were 20 weeks gestation or more.
Replying on behalf of Health Minister Roger Cook, Parliamentary Secretary Alanna Clohesy made the shocking and distressing admission in June in response to a question from Liberal Member for Southern Metropolitan Region, Nick Goiran, who wants a parliamentary inquiry into abortion.
The Defence of Human Life in WA organised a petition demanding an inquiry, and already more than 6700 people have added their names in opposition to this crime against defenceless children.
But we’d like to see many, many more West Australians being heard. With 8000 babies aborted in WA each year, it would be good to see each life represented with at least one signature.
The deadline for signatures being received to this petition has been extended to the end of the month. We encourage supporters in the West to be proactive and not only add your signature, but gather others also.
Together we can be a strong and effective voice for culture change.
Please return the signed petition forms by September 30 to:
