LifeSiteNews have reported that "While votes are still being counted, the number of political candidates who are members of the pro-abortion organization Emily’s List in the Queensland parliament appears to have been reduced from as many as 13 to as few as one".
Luke McCormack, spokesperson for the Queensland Branch of the Australian Family Association, partly attributed Labor’s losses to the presence of Emily’s List members in parliament. “One of the reasons Labor is on the nose is because the party no longer honours traditional labour values,” he said. “And one of the reasons for this is the successful infiltration of the feminist network EMILY’s list, which promotes radical feminist policies that financially manipulate families, and also promotes abortion law reform that allows terminations for any or no reason right up until full-term.”
Teresa Martin, the state president of Cherish Life Queensland, urged Queenslanders not to be complacent. “We urge you to make contact with your new Member on a regular basis and keep the pressure on them to be held accountable in pro-life matters,” she said.
Graham Preston, the Queensland Co-ordinator of Right to Life Australia, said he now expects the status-quo to be maintained by the new Liberal National Party government. “I don’t know how much people voted out Emily’s Listers because they were pro-abortion or how much it was just a general swing against Labor, and to be honest it was probably more the latter,” he said. “We would like to think there would be good things under the new government, but to be honest we don’t think they’ll make any moves to make abortion more difficult in Queensland, but we don’t think they’ll make any moves to make it easier either.”
