The Problem with Vilification Legislation PDF

Bill Muehlenberg
February 2005

A raft of new legislation is being passed throughout the Western world. These laws are called by various names, such as vilification or tolerance or discrimination laws. Sometimes they are referred to as hate-crime legislation. Whatever their title, these laws are problematic for a number of reasons. While the intentions behind them may have been good (to reduce hatred and vilification, etc.) the outcomes have been far from ideal.

Why John Howard was Right on Public Schools Values PDF
Monday, 22 December 2008 15:46

Proponents of PC are fuming that the Prime Minister should suggest that our public schools might be short of values and long on political correctness. He has created a firestorm of protest from the secularists and humanists by stating that more and more parents are sending their children to non-public schools.

Monday, 22 December 2008 15:35
The new amended version of the Racial and Religious Tolerance Bill was recently voted in by the Victorian Parliament. Even though it is now law, it is worth looking at it in detail.

It was because the original version of the Bill drew an unprecedented storm of protest (some 5500 submissions, almost all of them opposed to the Bill), that it was redrafted and re-introduced. The new version is no better than the previous one, and it should have been rejected altogether as an exercise in social engineering.

It looks like the debate on access to IVF will just not go away. With the Catholic Bishops and feminists engaged in the most recent round of hostilities, the IVF issue continues to raise important questions. Such questions deserve proper debate. As such, it is important to weed through the many claims being made. Too often ideology takes precedence over evidence in this debate. Indeed, a number of myths have been circulating which deserve to be put to rest.

Grave Risk In Having Abortion PDF

by Charles Francis - Herald Sun, 24 July 2006

Having acted for women damaged by abortion, I have learned it is always very bad advice to refer any woman for an abortion because there are so many medical risks.

Yet Senator Natasha Stott Despoja complained on these pages last week that some pregnancy counselling services do not refer women for abortions, and that they tell women of their increased risk of breast cancer, infertility and psychological trauma after abortion.
