Proposed Abortion Laws In Victoria, Absolutely Fu*ked Up


Victoria is rapidly becoming Australia’s most Left-leaning State. Not only do we have the appalling Racial and Religious Tolerance Act, which means anyone who looks white can be sued or charged for intolerance, but we’re about to get another fun law to make sure that the State turns completely to shit.

This new law is a doozy. It’s a law focusing on abortion, and this law makes it legal for women to have abortions up to 24 weeks into their pregnancy, twice as long as the current legal period for an abortion. I think this is absolutely appalling and below the level of human rights that Australia should be upholding.

Andrew Bolt appears (and I use the term appears because it’s possible I’m mistaken in his view on this matter) to have chalked this up as a win for those of us who are pro-life. I’m not so sure it is. I agree with the view that this is probably as far as any Government will go in respect to abortion so far, but I can never quite tell with these slippery Labor types. However, I disagree with the view that an abortion at 24 weeks is acceptable in an enlightened, open, democratic society. Note to Premier Brumby: I F**KING DARE YOU TO TAKE THIS TO AN ELECTION!

I have trouble accepting the premise for abortion at all, and this is entirely consistant with my views on capital punishment, despite the claims that one cannot believe in the death penalty and the right to life for children. I think abortion is too commonly used as a method of contraception. Far, far too commonly used as a method of contraception in fact. I know of women who have had three, four, five abortions, and blamed the men they’d slept with for impregnating them. Hey ladies? It takes two people to make a child, and if you don’t want the risk, don’t have sex or use protection.

But to use abortion as contraception is wrong in my view. It’s a procedure which should be strictly regulated and only performed if there are certain elements to the conception or the pregnancy. I think one of these is rape, and although Rebecca Kiessling puts forth a convincing counter argument to that view, I still hold it.

With 20,000 pregnancies being terminated in Australia each year (54 per day on average!) I think our laws are too liberal. Victoria’s current law falls back to 1969, where a Supreme Court Justice determined that abortions are legal if a woman’s physical or mental health is put at risk by the pregnancy. So in typical Victorian-Left fashion, this has led to horrific cases such as a late term child being murdered aborted because its mother thought that the child had dwarfism and couldn’t handle the possibility. The child did not have dwarfism.

Or the case of Jessica Jane, another child aborted. She lived for ninety minutes, crying, in a stainless steel dish, before she died. She never even got held by her mother.

So now Victoria, supposedly not humiliated and embarrassed and appalled by such stories, wants to make sure such things are more likely to occur?

Premier Brumby (ALP), Ted Baillieu (LIB), all the other supporters of this bill, I’m ashamed of Victoria. I’m ashamed at this proposed law. I’m ashamed you even thought of it. I’ll be even more ashamed if you pass it.

Some Damn Great News…Do we need it or what? Miami doctor breaks new ground in cancer surgery.


MIAMI (Reuters) – Dr. Tomoaki Kato had to remove a lot more than a cancerous tumor during an unprecedented operation on a 63-year-old Florida woman earlier this month.

To get to the tumor, which was buried deep in Brooke Zepp’s abdomen and threatened to kill her within months, the organ transplant specialist said he first had to remove her stomach, pancreas, spleen, liver and small and large intestines.

The organs were chilled and preserved outside Zepp’s body during a painstaking 15-hour operation at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Medical Center.

They were re-implanted in their normal position after the tumor — which was about 2 inches in diameter and wrapped around Zepp’s aorta and the base of two other arteries — was removed.

Kato said that never before have six organs been removed from a patient’s abdomen to allow doctors to go after a malignant growth previously considered inoperable because of its location.

“There’s nothing really simple here,” Kato, who trained as a surgeon at Osaka University in Japan, told Reuters on Monday. “I don’t want to say acrobatic but it’s kind of, in a way. It’s a very tricky operation.

“We’ve done pieces of this surgery many times but not the whole thing like this,” said the 11-year veteran of the University of Miami Transplant Institute who led a team of doctors that operated on Zepp.

Zepp was diagnosed with leiomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer. But Kato said the type of surgery he performed on March 4 ultimately could benefit people with more common diseases.

“There might be a lot of applications,” he said.

During the operation, Zepp, who was expected to be discharged from her Miami hospital this week, had many blood vessels replaced with artificial ones made of Gore-Tex.

“She came to me out of desperation,’ Kato said. “I’m really glad it worked out well.”

Doctor Kato. Bravo. You are a person that DOES THINGS, not talks things.
