New Challenges

In 2009 pro-life and pro-family organisations face daunting new challenges. We hope the election of Barack Obama as US President will expiate the residual guilt many Americans feel about slavery.

The Cult of Obama

"Anyone would think we had just elected a hip, skinny and youthful replacement for God, with a plan to modernise Heaven and Hell or that at the very least John Lennon had come back from the dead.

No political party is perfect, but some are better than others.......

I have had concerns about the Australian Christian Lobby ever since the "debate" they organized between John Howard and Kevin Rudd prior to the Federal elections in November 2007.

Archbisop says Abortion Bill a Betrayal of Humanity

The passing of the Abortion Law Reform Bill 2008 in the Victorian Legislative Council by a vote of 23 - 17, was described by the Archbishop of Melbourne Denis Hart as a betrayal of humanity.

Cardinal J. Stafford has sharp words of criticism for President-elect Barack Obama

Cardinal Stafford, who is the head of the Vatican’s Apostolic Penitentiary tribunal, was speaking on the theme of “Pope Paul VI and Pope John Paul II: Being True in Body and Soul” in a lecture sponsored by the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family.

Assessing the Australian Christian Lobby

Since its founding more than a decade ago, the Australian Christian Lobby (ACL) has become a prominent player in public life. Indeed, its own website claims the group has “positioned itself as one of the premier political lobbies in the country”. It also provides a regular source of media commentary on a range of issues and is quoted in parliamentary debates.

Great New Developments with Ethically Derived Stem Cells

While there are amazing new treatments and cures from ethically derived stem cells, state and federal governments continue to waste taxpayers’ money on research with embryonic stem cells and cloning which involve the destruction of new human life and provide no cures. Write to your MPs telling them they are delaying treatments which you or your family or the MPs themselves may need.

Adult Stem Cells Grow Whole New Organ

A 30-year-old Spanish woman has made medical history by becoming the first patient to receive a whole organ transplant grown using her own stem cells. Experts said the development opened a new era in surgery in which the repair of worn-out body parts would be carried out with personally customised replacements.

Endeavour Forum Submission on Productivity Commision Draft Inquiry on Paid Parent Leave

Endeavour Forum Inc. is a women’s pro-life, pro-family national organisation which has special consultative status with the Economic & Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations. I am the National & Overseas Co-ordinator, I have eight children, 18 grandchildren and one great-grandchild. Those of our supporters who are married tend to have larger than average-size families, so they tend to remain out of the paid workforce for longer after marriage, and many are full-time homemakers. Also many of our supporters homeschool their children.

State - provided Parental leave not as generous an offer as it appears to be

As far as I can make out, the issue of maternity and parental leave is currently high on the agenda in Australia. It seems to be Australia’s turn now to have the kind of debate we in
Sweden had so many decades ago before our internationally lauded scheme was introduced here.

“Gender Mainstreaming”: A Silent Revolution Dismantling Civilization

November 25, 2008 ( – “Gender mainstreaming,” an ideology that proposes to erase the foundational unit of western society, the natural family, is being infiltrated into laws and institutions around the world under the rubric of “equality” legislation and guidelines, says Gabrielle Kuby....

Dangerous Masquerade of the Feminist Majority Foundation

The Feminist Majority Foundation claims to be ‘dedicated to women’s equality, reproductive health and non-violence, but actions speak louder than words. Eleanor Smeal, the group’s president, and her colleagues do not care if women die of breast cancer or have premature births because of their abortions.

“Adverse Selection” and “Moral Hazard”

Economists acknowledge “Adverse Selection” and “Moral Hazard” as two main causes of market failure. Since these are main causes which negatively impact insurance, and therefore every sector of society, they must be addressed, and not dismissed, ignored, or politicized.
