To the people of faith in Victoria re State Election

Politics 10 November 2010 | 5 Comments will record candidate’s responses to the question:

Will you, if elected (or re-elected), vote to support a motion to repeal Section 8 if such a motion is introduced?

The answers give a very clear indication as to whether a candidate supports the compulsion of doctors to violate their conscience and be complicit in what they believe to be wrong.

It is one thing to pass a law that permits evil but it is something more to pass a law that compels evil.  We have not been here before in a civilised society.

Christians and other people of faith in Victoria, please understand what your government has done.

Not only has it permitted a great evil but it has compelled a noble profession sworn to do no harm to participate. This is what is known as a defining issue – when wrongs are actually brought into being by government introduced legislation as opposed to matters occurring or happening in our world.

Even if you personally do not believe that the legalisation of abortion by any method, for any reason, through to term is not an evil law, you must at least consider that the compulsion of doctors to be complicit in this when they believe it to be wrong is in itself evil.

I beg you not to vote for people who will ensure this evil continues. Further, I ask you to seriously consider whether support for such people then becomes an evil action in its own right.

    Hi, this is to say Anne Foster is standing as a candidate for CDP in Bendigo West and I -Sandra Caddy-am standing as a candidate for DLP in Bendigo West.
    We are standing because we could not risk voting for the four major parties in our electorate because of the horrendous abortion ‘reform’ law they were all complicit in voting in.
    We stand totally opposed to the abortion law reform on all points.

  2. Maree Johnson says:

    I am against abortion, and definately dont agree that Drs should be compelled to participate against their beliefs

  3. Lachlan says:

    Thankyou! Are you a candidate? Lachlan.

    I am also a DLP candidate hoping to provide an alternative for the ‘protest’ voters. I do not want a Greens/ALP anti-life agenda setting the example for other states to follow. As it is, our late term abortion rate has increased 600% due to interstate mothers taking advantage of our ‘inhuman’ law.

  5. Brian Tideman says:

    This section 8 is an attrocious, immoral and unjust attack on the rights and freedoms of doctors, and of course, to many, the rights of the foetus which usually continue on to being like one of us, humans that have basic right of continuing existence or life.

    But just as serious are the losses of freedom and extreme disrespect (many acctually enabled by the Vic Charter of Rights, EO, discrimination and vilification laws.
