Our Pro-Life generation

RADICAL abortion laws proposed for New South Wales have caused uproar in the Parliament and brought thousands of Catholics to the streets in protest. Fuelled by faith and a passion for life, Catholics have united with members of other denominations to condemn the laws and demand better treatment and support for mothers, children and families. NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian was forced to delay the Upper House vote on the rushed Bill following a revolt in her own Liberal Party room.

Federal politicians including Barnaby Joyce and Matt Canavan have joined the chorus of voices against the changes, which passed the Lower House with the support of Labor and Nationals MPs. A group of young adults from the Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn recently travelled to Sydney to join the pro-life rally. Turn to the middle pages to read about one young man’s motivation to speak up for unborn children, as well as an interview with prominent Women’s advocate and academic Rachael Wong.
