Meanwhile, Nick Goiran MLC, on May 23, 2012 Hansard page 3032-3044, spoke in Parliament for the need for an inquiry into the 14 live births of children that were aborted.   Following last year’s rally around 5000 signatures were collected which called for the inquiry. Following an investigation by the Standing Committee on Environment and Public Affairs, the committee decided to reject the petitioners call for an inquiry. Sitting on the committee is the Hon. Brian Ellis, Kate Doust, Phil Edman, Col Holt and Lynn MacLaren.

However, Goiran said in his speach to parliament that it is concerning to everyone if children that are born alive are not saved. In 2011 there were 47 induced abortions carried out at 20 weeks or more in WA. To view the Health Minister Dr Kim Hames’ response to the inquiry call, which he sent to the committee click here.

The Environment and Public Affairs Committee is now considering a petition presented by the Association for Reformed Political Action which called for an inquiry into the social and ethical impact that as resulted from the legalisation of abortion in 1998. The committee can be contacted at: mwarner@parliament.wa.gov.au or 92227410 or by post to GPO Box A11, Perth WA 6837.

The ARPA petition and its submission can be viewed here. (petition number 153). see also the Coalition for the Defence of Human Life petition No. 127)

Action: FamilyVoice is urging people to write to their local members in the upper and lower house, calling for an inquiry into the 14 live births of aborted children. Christian leaders say that it is necessary for MPs to hear, in the lead up to an election, that no Western Australian should be left to die without medical treatment.
