Australian Labor Party’s “extreme abortion plans this election”

By Penny Hoffmann

According to Ten News Australia, the Australian Labor Party has recently pushed for uniformed pregnancy termination laws, and billions of dollars of Commonwealth cash could be withheld from the states in an attempt to make it easier for women to access publicly funded abortions.

According to The Guardian, “In March, Labor pledged to work towards full decriminalization of abortion, open a reproductive health clinic to offer terminations in Tasmania, and require public hospitals to provide termination services”.

ABC News reported that Federal Labor is promising commonwealth funding for a Tasmanian abortion clinic and is using commonwealth funding to pressure all states and territories to make abortions more readily available in public hospitals.

ABC News also stated that the Tasmanian Government has agreed with a women’s health centre to “provide low-cost abortions”:

“In November, the Government revealed it had come to an agreement with Hampton Park Women’s Health Centre to provide low-cost abortions.

“The state had been without a low-cost service for nearly a year, after the previous private provider pulled out of the state because of a lack of demand.

“Despite the November announcement, Hampton Park Women’s Health Centre still has not begun offering services in Tasmania because the earmarked Hobart building needs work before it will be suitable for the clinic.”

Jo Flanagan from Women’s Health Australia stated that it was a confusing process for Tasmanian women to get abortions and outlined what the women’s health centre wanted to change about it:

“Our main concern is that women get access to the service, whether it’s done by a Tasmanian doctor or a Victorian doctor is of less concern to us.

“But what we ideally would want from any provider is a clear map for GPs, [saying] ‘this is what you tell women, this is where they go, this is the number to ring’, and we don’t even have that at the moment.”

Queensland’s Labor government announced on July 16th 2018 that it would introduce laws that decriminalize abortion in Queensland.

Deputy Premier for QLD Jackie Trad, MP for Griffith Terri Butler and Labor candidate for Dickson Ali France featured in a group photo with other protesters that held up signs stating “Labor for Choice” and “My Body My Choice”:

Both Jackie Trad and Terri Butler are members of Emily’s List, a political action committee based in the United States that advocates for pro-choice democratic females to enter into office:

Cherish Life Queensland (CLQ) reportedly aims to “educate the community on life issues, advocate (lobby all levels of government on life and death issues) and resource the community”.

According to its website, the group, formerly known as “Queensland Right to Life”, began as a reaction to American life issues, and is the first pro-life group in Australia and has spread to other states.

CLQ claims that it is not politically aligned with any party; it reaches out to anyone who will or will not listen in an attempt to promote being pro-life.

The Guardian reported the following:

The executive director of Cherish Life, Teeshan Johnson, has advertised her support for the Liberal party with an “I stand with Scott [Morrison]” filter on her Facebook profile.

Cherish Life has posted speeches from Liberal senator Amanda Stoker on its Facebook page, and Liberal National party MP George Christensen has addressed events, including the March for Life in September.

The real question for this matter is whether Teeshan Johnson and Cherish Life supported the liberal party in those instances because the Liberal Party is more likely to be pro-life, or whether both supported the Liberal party in those instances because both support more of the Liberal Party’s works.

REAL WOMEN DON’T NEED FEMINISM

Today’s feminism is an embarrassment to all women, as for the case of sexism I don’t believe it is a problem anymore. Today women have the same equal rights as men, therefore feminism is pointless in the 21st century. Women and Men are inherently and biologically different and it will forever be that way. To make a case that both Women and Men are equals is to degrade the abilities both genders have. Both genders were gifted different abilities in order to balance each other out.

Women should be treated with respect but not equals. Feminism is needed in third world countries, they have it a lot harder than here. We live like kings and queens in the west. We are without a doubt entitled to freedoms people in other countries can only dream about.

On July 2nd, 1964, the 88th Congress of the United States enacted a civil rights legislation to end discrimination within the United States. Discrimination against religion, gender, and race. This was a huge step in sustaining the free country that the U.S is. In ensuring all citizens the God given rights we have, protected by our constitution we created a safe haven for every citizen to live as comfortably as they can.

When all the real issues such as female voting, employment, freedom of sexuality are solved feminists continuously make problems complaining about issues that are not existent.

Today’s feminists have an apartment, they can vote, they can work and do anything a man can do. Yet they complain about being oppressed by a “patriarchy.” Feminists have no idea what real oppression looks like. Perhaps they should make a trip to Iran or Saudi Arabia where womens freedoms are highly restricted by a barbaric government. We should take note from Middle Eastern countries where women cover themselves head to toe and play submissive roles because God said we should be subservient to our husbands.

I am not a feminist because I am not manhating, I am thankful for the opportunities I have as a woman living in the west. Feminists constantly nag about how our society is infested with a non-existent “rape culture”. In fact, what feminists don’t realize is that they are encouraging rape! If you don’t want to be raped perhaps don’t be loose and sleep with every guy you meet. You wouldn’t taunt a lion with a slab of meat. Don’t taunt men with risqué clothing and sexually deviant behavior then play the blame game. Rape is not okay but there are certain actions a woman can take to prevent it. Perhaps be more feminine and put the “feminine” right back in your feminism.

Another point that is constantly brought up by feminists is the claim of a “pay gap”. There’s no such thing as the pay gap. The pay gap is a propaganda perpetuated by liberals. Women get paid less because of occupations and the hours they put in at work. Not to mention taking paid leave in order to raise a family by bringing in a baby to the world therefore, adding greater responsibility to a woman’s life.

As PragerU stated:

“The “wage gap” is almost entirely due to the different choices men and women make. Men are more likely to choose higher-paying occupations, including ones that are more stressful, dangerous, undesirable and require long work hours. After controlling for a wide range of factors, like differences in occupation, hours worked per week, and education level, the gap shrinks to a range of 4.8 to 7 cents. In fact, data from the census bureau finds childless women between the ages of 22 and 30 earn more than childless men of the same age, and women between the ages of 25 and 34 also have higher rates of educational attainment than their male peers.”

Modern day feminists brew hate. Feminist and hipsters make it seem “cool” to hate Donald Trump and men alike. There is nothing cool about being so hateful and brainwashing women into believing they are oppressed.

The world that liberalism and feminism reside in is a den of hatred. Real women stand up for their selves and don’t need third-wave feminism to empower their lives. The women who don’t submit to the hatred and see the bigger picture tend to be more content leading happier lives in happier families.
