So many prayers for life are needed! We also need to pray for our new GG, sworn in today, who, back in 1998, as a prominent pro-abortion feminist, came to Canberra to campaign against the Osborne Bill, a valiant legislative attempt to save the lives of at least some unborn children in the ACT.

We need to pray that one day, there will be outstanding and inspiring pro-life women in Australia who are allowed to become prominent leaders and are celebrated by the media as role models--not just the "usual suspects" with beautifully polished CV's and lovely families who ALSO just happen to be members of the same-old pro-abortion, WEL-approved sisterhood.....

Where is our own Aussie Sarah Palin?

Cheers,

The Grumpy Old Lady

I forgot to mention that my source for the information regarding new GG Quentin Bryce's stance against the pro-life Osborne Bill can be found in an article at the GreenLeft online site at http://www.greenleft.org.au/1998/339/20039
