Australian pro-lifer told to ‘go back where you came from’ in racially charged letter from self-described feminist

An Australian pro-lifer, received a bizarre and racially charged letter from a self-described feminist, telling her to “go back to Samoa.”

As New South Wales is considering introducing one of the most extreme abortion laws on the planet which effectively allows abortion throughout all nine months of pregnancy, barrister and pro-lifer, Rachael Wong, has been outspoken in criticising this legislation.

At least one self-described feminist in Australia has not taken kindly to her outspoken defence of the unborn. She accused Rachael, who was in fact born in Australia, of taking “full advantage of the western [sic] education system, and becoming extremely wealthy…”

In the same letter, she told Rachael to “go back to Samoa” and revealed her own confusions about human embryology. However, not to be put out by the apparent racism and ignorance on display, Rachael responded:

“My new biggest fan telling me to ‘go back to where you came from’. For the record, I was born in Australia and lived in NZ most of my life. Also, running a not-for-profit isn’t exactly lucrative 🤔🙄 I do have a GREAT job though. #FanMail #JustALittleRacist #CheersVicky”

Australia: Extreme abortion Bill delayed until September

The word “Life” written in the sky over the Parliament in NSW

An extreme abortion Bill being pushed in New South Wales Australia has been delayed until mid-September thanks to opponents within the Parliament and public opposition to the legislation.

The abortion legislation – brought forward in New South Wales (28/07) – would allow abortion up to 22 weeks without any restrictions and abortion up to birth with the consent of two doctors. The new legislation would also make abortion legal for any reason including sex-selective abortion and abortions based on disability.

Following an inquiry into the Bill, over 13,000 submissions were made by concerned citizens causing the state parliament’s web portal to temporarily crash.

On Tuesday evening, hundreds of pro-life protesters gathered in Martin Place and earlier in the day, a massive “choose life” was scrawled by skywriters above Sydney.

The Bill has been heavily criticised for its lack of any protections against the possibility of coerced abortions as well as the fact that there is no requirement for counselling and only limited protection for the rights of doctors who recognise that abortion is not healthcare.

A number of MPs have since delayed this Bill as they were concerned that it was being rushed through the Australian Parliament without due scrutiny. The Deputy Premier John Barilaro on Tuesday (20/08) has confirmed this.

A group of MPs including Christian Democrat Fred Nile, Shooters MP Robert Borsak and Liberal members Tanya Davies and Matthew Mason-Cox held a press conference to speak out against the Bill.

Ms Davies called for it to be set aside so a fresh bill could be reintroduced after six months of consultation.

“I believe it is a crisis of government we are facing,” she said.

“My community is absolutely outraged they have been shut out and denied any opportunity to participate in this process.”

It’s expected Finance Minister Damien Tudehope will move to ban sex-selective abortions and One Nation NSW leader Mark Latham is aiming to introduce amendments to protect the consciences of medical professionals.

MPs in Australia receive death threats for voting against extreme abortion laws

MPs in New South Wales, Australia, have received death threats for voting against a new extreme abortion bill which would make abortion legal up to birth.

Two Liberal Party MPs, Anthony Roberts and Tanya Davies, report that they have received death threats which are now being investigated by police.

A spokesperson for NSW Police Force said on Wednesday it was now “conducting inquiries into threats made against NSW MPs”.

Anthony Roberts MP confirmed he had received a death threat “earlier in the week” but would not provide further detail. On Wednesday, Liberal MP Tanya Davies also reported she has received a death threat.

“I’m a mother, I’ve got a young family and I’m simply standing up for what I believe in and for working hard to get this bill into a more humane and compassionate framework,” Ms Davies said.

Both MPs voted against the Reproductive Health Care Reform Bill 2019 which intends to remove all restrictions on abortion up until 22 weeks gestation and permit abortion up until birth with the approval of two doctors. The Bill would also allow for abortion of the grounds of the sex of the child.

The Bill passed the Legislative Assembly on August 8th by a vote of 59 to 31, with both MPs criticising the Bill for being rushed through Parliament.

Tanya Davies MP, introduced an amendment that would have explicitly barred sex-selective abortion, but it was ultimately rejected.

New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian, who supports this extreme abortion law, said the state’s chief obstetrician had advised her that sex selection abortions were “not an issue in NSW”.

“Everybody regards that as an abhorrent practice.”

“This is a black and white issue. The people of NSW, the parliamentarians of NSW do not support sex-selection abortions.”

However, in other countries which have extreme abortion laws, sex-selection abortion does happen. Indeed, Canada, due to its unrestricted access to abortion, has been described as a “haven” for parents wishing to have an abortion because their child is a girl.

A further amendment mandating that a child born alive after a failed abortion should be given lifesaving care was also defeated by pro-abortion MPs.

Right To Life UK spokesperson, Catherine Robinson said:

“No MP should receive death threats regardless of their views. Tanya Davies MP in particular proposed a very moderate amendment which would ban abortion on the basis of sex, but it seems that this was unacceptable to at least one extremist.”

“Furthermore, the fact that these MPs could not even vote to ban sex-selective abortion or agree that a baby born alive after a failed abortion should receive life saving treatment is truly shocking, and reveals the extent to which a majority of these MPs have bought into an unthinking abortion ideology.”

Extreme abortion legislation delayed in Australia

New South Wales could become the next state in Australia to introduce extreme abortion legislation which would allow abortion up to 22 weeks without any restrictions and abortion up to birth with the consent of two doctors. The new legislation would make abortion legal for any reason including sex-selective abortion and abortions based on disability.

A new Bill has been put forward in New South Wales (28/07), Australia which would see the removal of all restrictions and safeguards to abortion provision up until the 22nd week of pregnancy.

A number of Liberal MPs have since delayed this Bill as they were concerned that it was being rushed through the Australian Parliament without due scrutiny.

The Bill has been heavily criticised for its lack of any protections against the possibility of coerced abortions as well as the fact that there is no requirement for counselling and only limited protection for the rights of doctors who recognise that abortion is not healthcare.

The Bill does not contain any provision or safeguard to account for cases where a boyfriend or family member might pressure a woman into having an abortion she does not want. It would also make extreme late-term abortion available up to birth with the consent of two doctors.

Clause 5 of the Bill states:

“A person who is a medical practitioner may perform a termination on a person who is not more than 22 weeks pregnant.”

This clause apparently gives medical practitioners complete immunity regardless of whether a woman has received informed consent in regard to her abortion. It also allows for sex-selective abortion, which typically involves ending the lives of baby girls because sons are desired. There is evidence of this practice being widespread in parts of India.

CEO of NSW Right to Life Dr Rachel Carling said it was concerning that the bill has no mention of a woman’s consent as women facing an unplanned pregnancy are often vulnerable to coercion from others to abort their child.

“[T]his legislation will add to a culture of devaluing motherhood and increases the risk of women being [taken] advantage of when they are at their most vulnerable,” Dr Carling added.

Clare McCarthy from Right To Life said:

 “It is no surprise that the abortion lobby are attempting to fast-track this extreme legislation in New South Wales. We have seen similar tactics used in the UK. The abortion lobby never seem to want to properly debate their legislation, but rather rush it through as fast as possible, without Parliament having the opportunity to examine the details too closely.”

“Fortunately, there are a number of MPs in New South Wales who have called a halt to this as they recognise that this kind of extreme legislation, needs more time to be debated and explored.”
