A Letter to the Abortion Clinic Neighbour

By Anna von Marburg

Words escape me that a neighbour, Jean Wheeler, is concerned about protestors, but happy to have an abortion clinic operating in her neighbourhood, aborting 10-15 babies every Thursday in less than six hours. I note that the neighbour never mentioned the “A” word(Abortion), so I’ve done it for her by doing a little edit on her Letter to the Editor (Border Mail 29.3.12) as follows:

“The peace and quiet was broken by the sound of a vacuum in the mother’s womb at the fertility control clinic in Englehardt Street.
Yes, the abortionist was there again, aborting babies in a quiet neighbourhood and showing complete disregard for the rights and beliefs of the unborn who don’t happen to share their passion.
It really caps off the week: the abortionist, after killing 10-15 unborn babies in Albury on Thursday, flies back down to Melbourne and to Tasmania to kill even more unborn babies.
And yes, it’s quite legal.
They have their permits.
They can abort unborn babies as often as they like with these permits.
How can the rest of us express just how seriously their behaviour affects the unborn babies’rights and the quality of their lives?
It seems they have no rights.
I don’t know when I have felt so disempowered by the legal system as it applies in this instance.
This constant termination of unborn human lives has gone on for long enough and is doing nothing to encourage a sympathetic response to their cause.
I acknowledge the pro abortionists’ right to their firmly held beliefs, and I admire their commitment, but I do not agree with the way they won’t accept that others have human rights, too.
Dare I use the terms zealots, bigots, emotional bullies, or spiritual manipulators?
These abortions really are a blatant form of harassment and intimidation of the unborn.
All I ask now is that they respect the unborn as they expect us to respect born human beings, and allow unborn human beings with other beliefs to make their own decisions once they are old enough to decide whether or not they want to be aborted.
It’s about time for somebody to take a serious look at the impact these abortions have on women and the unborn, who just want to live their lives in peace and harmony in the womb, making their own decisions and living with their own conscience once they are born. “

  1. Well said Anna. Jean Wheeler wants the right to have quality of life, her own opinion, make her own decisions, she wants respect and to live in peace and harmony. However it seems she is unwilling to afford these same ‘rights’ to others, namely babies who are still growing in their mothers wombs.
    Ms Wheeler says that she feels dis-empowered with no rights but is that not precisely the position a baby scheduled for abortion is in? And worse too, as unlike the babies aborted weekly in her neighborhood, Ms Wheelers life is not being threatened?
