Proud to be an Australian? Then watch this video ...
Those of you who are regulars to our site know that we do not put video on our front page. We tend to write articles and reinforce our subject matter with relevant video. However, I received an email from a concerned Australian today ... featuring the following video. Having watched it, I had no hesitation placing it on the front page for you to see too. Please watch it all.
We, as Australian Christians (with few exceptions), have been far too silent about abortion in our country. The fact that a dominant State in Australia (Victoria) has passed this law should not mean that we lay down and do nothing. Far from it!
We need to demand from our lawmakers that abortion is not acceptable in our land. Not now ... not ever. If a representative of the people cannot defend the rights of the unborn, then they are not fit to hold public office - regardless of their party.
