• Community organizations jointly funded by government should support pregnant women.
• Reform adoption laws
Family First Qld is passionate about protecting the life of all human beings, no matter how small, how old, how disabled or how weak.
Family First recognise the personhood of the unborn from conception, having a separate DNA to the mother and therefore not being subject to the mother’s choice of whether that life should be prematurely terminated.
It is Family First Qld’s position that Qld legislation should be enforced in the spirit in which it was made whereby abortion is only legal when it occurs as an unintended consequence of saving a mother’s life, not for the financial, physiological or psychological convenience of the mother.
Yes. Family First Qld also commits to ensuring ultrasounds are viewed by all pregnant women who are dealing with an unintended pregnancy. Furthermore, Family First will commit to ensuring the pregnant woman is supported by community organisations that are jointly funded by the government and the local community.
Family First Qld does not support the practice of having abortion-providing private clinics which are run for profit. If an abortion occurs, it should be a tragic event for all hospital staff involved, including the parents – It should not be a statistic on a graph for a return on investment.
Finally, Family First commits to making the adoption laws less burdensome so that women who are unable to care for their child can give them into the care of the many married couples who would gladly look after them.
