In NSW we have faced a barrage of debate as part of the greatest Parliamentary assault on pro-life and family relationships ever experienced in over 190 years of the Legislative Council’s existence.
Rev Dr Gordon Moyes, Parliamentary Leader of the NSW Family First Party states, “Everything we have fought against and feared is on the agenda of the NSW Parliament. I am referring to the Rights of the Terminally Ill bill, introduced by the Greens Member, Ms Cate Faehermann, and other motions on the record such as the de-criminalization of abortion and the removal of Special Religious Education and replacement with Secular Ethics Classes. We’ve already vehemently fought against the same sex adoption bill, the same sex surrogacy bill, as well as, the continuation of the Kings Cross Injecting Room, all of which are the death rattles of a dying State Government.”
Dr Moyes asks, “Are the Greens and the Government capable of dealing with ordinary issues that affect the majority of Australian Families?”
There are more important pieces of legislation before the NSW Parliament.
“The Government is happy to see contentious issues turn away the public attention from its ineffective and dysfunctional governance, and to hide the Government failures from the Media. The Government insisted such issues have precedence over 200 other important bills which have been waiting for months for debate and approval.
“If we can concentrate on these pieces of Government legislation, we will have defeated the Greens and Labor Socialist Left agenda which they wanted to ram through Parliament before the election. We are dealing with slippery people so we have to remain vigilant.
“I place on record that I will commit myself to oppose Euthanasia and the continuation of the Secular Ethics Classes in New South Wales. I believe that we must be always compassionate by protecting the vulnerable, and that that is our duty: to protect and support them, not to lead them into death. I also believe the introduction of ethics classes is a secular humanist attempt to replace Christian values taught in scripture classes. We should be positive and affirm the place of scripture classes in schools to enable children to grow with Christian ethics, and that they should get an understanding of the Bible, the basis of so much of our shared language, literature, history, legal precepts, societal foundations and personal behaviour. I will fight to prevent bills and motions that aim to assault pro-life and Christian family values”, said Dr Moyes.
