Australian Pro-Life Legal Defence Fund
Well, by now you’ve probably heard about Kathy’s arrest for simply offering help to a woman outside an abortion business. The arrest was made under Victoria’s Safe Access Zone Amendment. Here is her statement:
I was arrested today for offering help to aborting mothers outside the Fertility Control Clinic in East Melbourne and for seeking to draw the attention of the public and politicians to the issue of abortion and to the totalitarian restrictions being placed on a targeted group of Australians – members of the pro-life movement, especially the Helpers of God’s Precious Infants by the “Safe Access Zone” law.
I intend to pursue this case to the High Court to prove that the “Safe Access Zone” amendment is unconstitutional because it burdens the constitutional freedom of political communication. We believe that the public, and aborting mothers in particular, are not being told the whole truth about abortion and that it is our right to express that belief to them and our elected representatives. One of the most effective ways to do this is in the immediate vicinity of places like the Fertility Control Clinic especially to those of us who have no access to the mass media.
