Please find following a list of amendments that were rejected when the Victorian Brumby Government legalised abortion up until birth. While there were some 60 amendments, this is a shorter list of those which reveal the cruel intention of those that voted to make abortion legal on demand.
The following list is from the Life Voteflyer (page 2)
In October 2008, the Victorian parliament voted to make abortions legal,
right up to the day of birth, no counselling required.
98% of Australians believe that women should be advised
of the health risks of abortion*
99% want support-counselling for women*
87% want the number of abortions reduced*
Despite this, the Victorian Parliament voted down amendments to help women
in crisis. They voted:
*Against providing support-counselling for women. [VicHansard 3536-3550]
*Against providing information on the health risks of abortion. [VicHansard 3629-3631]
*Against the right of healthcare workers not to participate in abortion or refer for abortion. [VicHansard 4245-4264]
*Against banning late-term and partial-birth abortion. [VicHansard 3498-3506]
*Against mandatory reporting of suspected child/teenage victims of sexual abuse when a suspected abuser takes them to an abortion clinic. [VicHansard 3492-3498]
*Against notifying the custodial parent of a minor seeking an abortion [VicHansard 3480-3485]
*Against requiring abortionists to provide an anaesthetic to the unborn child being aborted. [VicHansard 3625-3639]
*Against protecting the life of a child born alive after an abortion.
*Against providing legal protection for an unborn child seriously injured during an assault on the mother. [VicHansard 3474-3480]
