SIGN THE PETITION
Earlier this week, the Reproductive Health Care Reform Bill 2019 (Bill) passed the NSW Lower House.
It will now proceed to the NSW Upper House for a vote and, if passed, it will make abortion legal up until birth in NSW, for any reason, as long as two doctors agree if the baby is more than 22 weeks’ old.

STAND FOR LIFE IN OPPOSITION TO THIS EXTREME ABORTION BILL!
The NSW Parliament is about to legislate for abortion on demand till birth, one of the most extreme abortion laws in the world. The Bill was pushed through the Legislative Assembly and will be debated in the Legislative Council from Tuesday, 20 August.
Join us in peaceful protest against this radical proposed legislation.
Human Embryo ResearchWhether beginning by fertilisation or by cloning, a human embryo has all the genetic material and power to direct its own growth and development as a human being. Even in the laboratory, he or she already is and will remain a human being, worthy of respect and protection.
AbortionApproximately 85 000 unborn human beings die as a result of abortion each year in Australia. This is a tragic and staggering loss of human life. Abortion unjustly deprives a human being of the opportunity to grow and develop and experience all that life on earth has to offer.
EuthanasiaEvery human life, at every stage and in every condition, has dignity. This means that our value as a human person belongs to us simply because we are human beings, and that it can never be diminished by illness, disability, age or dependence.
“Not only would I say that the family is important for the evangelization of the new world.
The family is important, and it is necessary for the survival of humanity.
Without the family, the cultural survival of the human race would be at risk.
The family, whether we like it or not, is the foundation.”
Pope Francis, Radio interview, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, July 27th, 2013
“We [the Church] have a positive idea to offer, that man and woman are made for each other…that marriage develops, first of all as a joyful and blessing-filled encounter between a man and a woman, and then, the family, which guarantees continuity among generations and through which generations are reconciled to each other and even cultures can meet.”[I] – Benedict XVI
Marriage is the community formed by a man and a woman who publicly consent to share their whole lives in a faithful, exclusive sexual relationship that is open to the gift of children. Marriage, a vocation and a sacrament, was created and blessed by God for the mutual help, love and sanctification of man and woman and for the generation of children.
“The intimate partnership of life and the love which constitutes the married state has been established by the creator and endowed by him with its own proper laws. . . . For God himself is the author of marriage.” – Gaudium et Spes, 48.
