Thuggery at Brisbane pro-life rally (letter)

by John McMahon

News Weekly, March 1, 2008

Lauren Mellor and her gang of merry clowns and radical activists violently invaded a peaceful gathering of pro-life women rallying in Brisbane on Saturday, February 9. The pro-life Respect for Women rally was in support of the defence of innocent unborn babies and their mothers.

(Mellor afterwards told the Australian Associated Press that her pro-abortion activists "decided to ambush the event" to put voice to the majority of Australians who supposedly support abortion rights (AAP, February 9, 2008).)

In flagrant disregard for the views and values of others in this democracy of ours, she and her mob stormed and rampaged onto the stage in Queen's Park.

In overwhelming numbers they overpowered a concerned number of pro-life women who are prepared to stand by other women facing pressure to terminate the life of their innocent unborn child.
