Below is a copy of my recent letter to my local member of Parliament, the Hon. Melinda Pavey, M.P, asking her to consider voting against the abortion bill, which is currently before the N.S.W parliament.
This is an important issue and due to the rushed nature of the bill, it’s imperative that we give an immediate response in writing.
If you’d like to reuse the main body of the letter below, first, copy and paste the text into an email. Next, address your own local M.P and sign off under your own name and town in the space provided.
Finding your local member is easy. Just look through the member’s page on the NSW parliament website.
To [my local member of parliament],
I am a member of your electorate. As such I encourage you to vote “no” to the current abortion bill before the NSW state parliament.
The popular ideology behind abortion leads advocates of abortion to convince society that conceiving a child is the same as contracting a sexually transmitted disease. A “yes” vote would see the dehumanizing of an unborn human child by lending legitimacy to this ideology. Therefore, reducing an unborn child to a treatable ailment.
This bill, will, by all appearances, wrongfully legitimize this vile misconception, and industrialize the violent disruption of an unborn child’s life, denying them their right to life. No amount of ideological arguments from fanatics and the false doctrines spawned from them in favour of abortion, change the biological fact that abortion is the deliberate violent interruption of pregnancy. This is where women (and some men on behalf of women) demand the kind of freedom only God should own; the ability for an expectant mother to judge who is worthy of life and who isn’t. The God-like ability to decide who lives or dies, by encouraging the killing of an unborn child through ”miscarrying on demand”.
Under this shadow, abortion is as a matter of fact, another manifestation of lebensunwertes leben (The Nazi ideology of life [deemed] unworthy of life).
Although advocates of abortion use a healthcare pretence, may I remind you that “the Nazi group in charge of the actual killing in the gas chambers was called the General Welfare Foundation for Institutional Care…’ (Dean Stroud, 2013 ‘Preaching in Hitler’s Shadow: Sermons of Resistance’ Wm B. Eerdmans Publishing pp.132 & 136)
As summed up by anti-Nazi theologian Karl Barth:
He who destroys germinating life kills a man and thus ventures the monstrous thing of decreeing concerning the life and death of a fellow-man whose life is given by God and therefore, like his own, belongs to Him. He desires to discharge a divine office, or, even if not, he accepts responsibility for such discharge, by daring to have the last word on at least the temporal form of the life of his fellow-man. Those directly or indirectly involved cannot escape this responsibility. (CD.3:4:416)
Despite the claims of radical activists, particularly extreme feminists, children are not a parasite or a hindrance. Children are a gift. Give them the chance to live and become part of the future of our country.
These are strong, valid reasons for why I reject abortion. I humbly ask that you consider doing the same.
