Abortion: Legislation Battle in NSW
Who speaks for God on Abortion?
By Peter Kentley, 14 August 2019
On Thursday night, 8th August 2019, the NSW Legislative Assembly followed other Australian states/ territories in authorising acts of defiance against the will of God by passing the “Reproductive Health Care Reform Bill 2019” in the NSW Lower House - subject to review in the Upper House.
Those who voted yes for abortion, voted to make legal on earth that which is illegal in heaven. This is a direct violation of the teaching of Christ and it will unleash harm and suffering on the people of NSW if it is passed into law by the NSW Upper House.
This ghoulish injustice must be reverted across the nation, as it is in direct contradiction to the Word of God:
“You shall not murder” (Exodus 20:13 NIV)
“….. whatever you bind (declare to be improper and unlawful) on earth must be what is already bound in heaven; and whatever you loose (declare lawful) on earth must be what is already loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 16:19 Amplified translation).
Every reader’s heart needs to be moved towards defending the rights of the unborn, as we become better informed on the truth and the love of God for every life that has been conceived. What greater care does a mother have than for the new life within her?
Let us be very clear on this reality: ‘pro-choice’ is a continuation of the sin of Eve. To be ‘pro-choice’ on life and death is to be a consumer of the metaphorically named tree of the knowledge of good and evil. From the beginning of time God has warned that this independent trajectory ends in death (Genesis 2:15-17).
Those people, like those in Emily’s List, who are propagating the doctrine of 'pro-choice' are proof of this truth in Holy Scripture. Their coterie of death is but a flash in the pan of human history compared with the beauty, wisdom and truth of the Book of Life that precedes them by thousands of years and will succeed them to eternity.
Science has now caught up with the truth of the Bible that life begins at conception and life begins in a flash of light. This is incontrovertibly true, as depicted in this photograph of the instant when the male sperm fertilizes the female ovum:

Now we need to pay close attention to how God feels about the sacrifice of children:
“They (the Hebrews) have built pagan shrines to Baal in the valley of Ben-Hinnom, and there they sacrifice their sons and daughters to Molech. I have never commanded such a horrible deed; it never even crossed my mind to command such a thing. What an incredible evil, causing Judah to sin so greatly!” (Jeremiah 32:35).
How can anyone today say that the modern sacrifice of unborn children on the altar of choice is any better than those who sacrificed their children to the false god of Molech?
How did we become so calloused as to legislate death to the innocent in the womb?
We have been deceived and lied to and we have all too often swallowed deception. The sin of silence has then perpetrated throughout the wider church where we have refused to speak out against injustice against the innocent in the womb.

Read Dr Nathanson’s own account of how they manipulated the media with lies and deception to propagate abortion. How then can the NSW Parliament legislate death to the voiceless innocent, when these lies and deception are now public knowledge? You are invited to google Doctor Bernard Nathanson to verify these facts for yourself.

His five-minute testimony to the US House Judiciary Committee should convince anyone with any sensibility of the need to revert abortion laws to protect life.
Allowing babies who survive abortion to die after birth!
This is a barbaric consequence of the legislation passed by the NSW Lower House last Thursday night. Tanya Davies MP, NSW State Member for Mulgoa (LIB), moved an amendment that if a live child is born after an attempted abortion, then that child must be given the same neonatal care as would be given to any other child born at the same stage of pregnancy and in the same medical condition.
This amendment was voted down 57 to 31. Even the Premier of NSW, Gladys Berejiklian (LIB) voted against this amendment to care for a baby who is living outside the womb after a failed abortion.
How can we allow such barbarism to continue in our nation?
Click here and go to page 247 of NSW Hansard to read for yourself this aberration against life. This Bill authorises murder according to the NSW Criminal Trial definition:
Criminal Trial Courts Bench Book — Offences
Click here to read the formal definition of murder in the NSW Crimes Act 1900:
“… is made out where a voluntary act or omission of the accused causes the death of the deceased and the act is committed with:
1. an intent to inflict grievous bodily harm, or
2. an intent to kill, or
3. reckless indifference to human life, or
4. committed by the accused or some accomplice with him or her in an attempt to commit, or during or immediately after the commission of, an offence punishable by at least 25 years imprisonment (constructive murder).”
Surely this NSW abortion bill that condones recklessly leaving living babies to die after birth, is an act of murder and must be expunged. Here is the protection denied in the NSW Lower House when it voted down the following amendment:
“If a live child is born, the child must be given the same neonatal care as would be given to any other child born at the same stage of pregnancy and in the same medical condition.”
This bill in the NSW Lower House also defies the law of heaven in the Ten Commandments:
“You shall not murder” (Exodus 20:13)
Counter to the five main pro-abortion arguments:
1. What about abortion in the case of rape or incest?
In the opinion of the author, if a woman is raped she should have a pregnancy check and if pregnant seek God as to whether she should continue to carry the ovum that was illegally fertilised. This is a shocking scenario where the mother needs tender loving care in her decision making before God. This is not a matter to be decided by law.
2. What about where the mother’s life is in danger?
There is no law preventing the best medical help in such circumstances.
3. What about the risk of giving birth to a possibly deformed baby?
Extreme care is needed in such circumstances because medical prognosis has too often been in error in such assumed situations.
4. Well there are not many late term abortions, are there?
Click here for the late term abortion figures from the Consultative Council on Obstetric and Pediatric Mortality and Morbidity, Victoria. These records show that in 2010 there were a total of 366 post 20-week terminations and in 2011 a total of 378.
5. What right does a male have to tell a woman what she should do with her body?
It has now been clearly established that the baby in a mother’s womb is not her body but another body being incubated that she is duty bound to love and protect
Would You Consider Abortion in the following Situations?
1. A pastor and wife have 14 children. Now she finds she’s pregnant with number 15 and they’re living in tremendous poverty - would you recommend she gets an abortion?
2. A father is sick with syphilis, the mother has TB and they already have four children. The first is blind, the second is dead, the third is deaf, and the fourth has TB. Then she finds she’s pregnant again - would you recommend abortion?
3. A white man raped a 13-year-old black girl and she got pregnant. If you were her parents, would you recommend abortion?
4. A teenage girl is pregnant when not married. Her fiancé is not the father of the baby and he’s very upset - would you recommend abortion?
If you answered yes to any of these scenarios, then:
- in the first case you would have killed John Wesley
- in the second case you would have killed Beethoven
- in the third case you would have killed Ethel Waters, the great black gospel singer
- and in the fourth case, you would have killed Jesus Christ.
How many brilliant scientists, doctors and nurses, outstanding sports champions, gifted musicians, creative artists, futuristic innovators, passionate educators, teachers and inspiring national leaders have had their lives cruelly terminated in the womb?
It’s time to revert this callous disregard in our nation for the God given gift of life and see every person as precious and valuable from conception to the end of their days:
“Upon you I have leaned from before my birth; you are he who took me from my mother's womb. My praise is continually of you.” (Psalms 71:6 ESV)
“Speak up for those who can't speak for themselves, for the rights of all who need an advocate.” (Proverbs 31:8 CJV).
