Two Women Tell Their Stories of their Albury Abortion

Endless sorrow

Albury Wodonga Newsweekly : Friday, 21 September, 2012

TWO teenagers who had abortions in Albury have revealed their heart-rending stories of regret and remorse on a just launched national website.Melissa, 16, and 19-year-old Elle, who lost twins, wrote of the mental anguish they had suffered since having abortions. “I sat in a waiting room with other girls, one who looked as young as me. The rest were older, but everyone looked either really, really sad, or really, really scared,” Melissa wrote on iregretmyabortion.com.au “I don’t know how I looked. I still don’t know how I feel, except that there is a space inside me that feels wrong … like it shouldn’t be there. “I never want to go to school anymore. I don’t really care about anything anymore.  Nobody said anything about how I would feel. I know I don’t want this anymore.” Melissa was taken to the clinic by her mother. “There were a few people outside looking like they were praying,” she wrote.“This really scared me, because it made me think about what I was really doing, but the person in the clinic explained that they were really just there to make us feel bad.

I wasn’t so sure and I did want to stop and talk to them, but mum and another lady really pushed me along the footpath and told them to go away. I remember as I walked in the door, looking back and wishing I  could run back to them.”

Anglican Archbishop Peter Jensen Decries the Rate of Abortion

by Paul Maley,    The Australian    October 09, 2012
ANGLICAN Archbishop Peter Jensen has used his final address to the faithful to decry the high rate of abortion in Australia and to urge his followers to resist the temptation to distort Christian teachings to please modern ears.

Dr Jensen asked: “What sort of society is it that kills 100,000 children in the womb each year?”

Addressing the Anglican Synod in Sydney, Dr Jensen used his hour-long speech to decry the modern cult of “malign individualism”, which he said had corroded the family, faith and community.
“Individualism promises much but delivers aloneness,” Dr Jensen said. “In the face of death, it is the god who failed.” Read the rest of this entry »

Australia Responds to IVF Dirty Little Secret

IVF Dirty Little Secret – 60 Minutes

The Myth of Overpopulation in Australia

As one of the very few rich countries that still has a young and growing population, Australia should embrace this opportunity and continue to grow. Other countries may well abolish themselves but Australia should not. Read more.

So far, Australia has its population debate the wrong way around. It is not population growth that will be the developed world’s biggest worry over the coming decades, but population decline.

Australia’s total fertility rate (TFR), the average number of children a woman would bear over her lifetime, fell sharply from 3.6 children per woman in 1961 to 1.9 in 1979 and continued to fall steadily for the next 20 years. In 2002-03 it reached a low of 1.72 children per woman. Since then, it has increased, and in 2008 Australia’s TFR was 1.978 babies per woman, the highest level since 1977 when the TFR was 2.007.
Even though the total fertility rate has recently risen to 1.978 births per woman, it remains below replacement levels of 2.1 births per woman.
Few developed countries have a fertility rate as high as Australia, the USA being the most notable exception with a TFR around the replacement rate of 2.1, and New Zealand with a replacement rate of 2. Read more.


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. “

More Than 200 Gather for International Day of the Unborn Child Vigil in Albury

Over 200 hundred people gather in front of the Albury abortion clinic at 586 Englehardt Street to pray for the end of abortion.

 

On Sunday 25 May, 2012 people all over the world marked the Day of the Unborn Child by processions and vigils. In Albury, over two hundred men, women, and children  peacefully prayed in front of the abortion clinic in Albury at 586 Englehardt Street.  An angry pro abortion neighbour who has supported noisy pro abortion protestors in front of the clinic, ranted to the local newspaper about the legal procession and vigil through town. Even though pro abortionists have used loudspeakers  at various times, blasted music from their cars, indeed have danced in front of the abortion clinic, this resident only took offense to the one time when the pro life group used a loud speaker to lead prayers for the very large group to hear over the music that the neighbours were blasting from their porches when they saw the peaceful vigil coming. The picture above depicts the families that she calls, “zealots, bigots, emotional bullies, and spiritual manipulators.”

Woman Dies from Abortion Pill

 

by: Jamie Walker

From: The Australian

March 19, 2012 12:00AM

AUSTRALIA has had its first death of a woman using the abortion pill to terminate her pregnancy at home.

Health regulator the Therapeutic Goods Administration issued a notice to doctors and clinics to review their follow-up care in light of the “bedroom abortion” gone wrong.

The woman, unnamed by authorities, had been treated by the country’s largest private abortion service, Marie Stopes International Australia, in 2010. She is believed to have developed a streptococcus A infection and died of sepsis.

The death, confirmed only now, is the only one to be linked to use of RU486 since its introduction to Australia in 2006 and is believed to be the first in at least a decade involving a sanctioned elective abortion. The case was reported to a coroner, but no inquest was convened despite the rarity of abortion-related deaths in Australia. Read the rest of this entry »

Children Protesting with Parents- Acceptable for Some Issues

Children protesting with their parents.  Seems it’s acceptable for some politically correct issues such as global warming but not the killing of innocent unborn children and the harming of women.  Oh dear.
