Victoria Elections

At the Victoria Election, pro-abortion group Emily’s List supported 11 new Labour candidates in addition to the 17 sitting MPs. As a result of the election the number of Emily’s List sponsored MPs increased by 2 in the lower house with four of the new candidates winning their seats. The two sitting Labor MPs that lost their seat included Maxine Morand, who was Minister for Children and Early Childhood Development and Minister for Women’s Affairs. Emily’s List now has 13 supporters sitting in the Victorian lower house. Speaking in Perth on Dec 1, 2010, National Civic Council president Peter Westmore said his organisation distributed over 240,000 leaflets attacking the Greens’ agenda on marginal seats leading to a fall in the Greens vote in those seats by around 0.9%. In addition, though an online register, LifeVote, the NCC found over 1000 people who assisted pro-life parties.
