WEST AUSTRALIA, Mar 11 (LSN) – MPs in Australia are to begin debate next week on amending current abortion laws that prohibit abortion except for the “preservation of the mother’s life”. Intense lobbying by pro-life and pro-abortion advocates continues and prayers are requested from the pro-life community the world over.  While opposition parties have proposed a number of bills including one for abortion on demand, the ruling party has proposed a bill to allow abortion in the case of “serious genetic defects.” Pro-life activist Richard Egan, accused the Government of trying to “weed out Downs syndrome and undesirable children”.
