The Right to Life Association of Western Australia has received news via Margaret Quirk’s office* that abortion numbers are down in Western Australia.
In 2019 there were 7870 abortions in WA. This figure represents 19% of all pregnancies, down from 26% of all pregnancies in 1998.
This is good news! Whilst the death of even one child is unacceptable to us, and whilst this reduced figure still means more than twenty children are deliberately killed for State-sanctioned profit every single day in WA, any reduction in abortions is welcome news.
Now, be careful when looking at these figures! Remember that the population of the state has increased enormously over the last twenty years, so the percentages need to be carefully interpreted.
However, the reduction in absolute numbers is clear. It appears that the number includes all methods of abortion, including RU486. We can’t be sure of this of course, and we also know that abortions are at times described as other procedures, but it all looks very positive.
Let’s keep working! Every child is a gift. Every life is as valuable as every other life, born or unborn, young or old, fit or unwell.

Do you really know who is standing up for the right to life in Western Australia? Stephen Klomp, President of Right to Life Association western Australia, sat down with me to talk about this important Mission, to speak up for every human life which begins at conception and ends at natural death. He shared with me how he became involved in this work, the struggles and the disappointments that come with the territory but also of the hope which God breathes into those who persevere. [Read more]
It is really good to hear about the many organisations and churches – and individuals – that are prepared to publicly state they are ‘Pro-Life’. In other words, that they believe in the sanctity of human life from conception to its natural end. These are courageous, faith-filled people! [Read more]

We all abhor the possibility that anyone can die whilst in police custody or in gaol. It is a blight on any society and we need to take steps to ensure that everyone is protected, as far as that is humanly possible. After all, we all should be defending life from conception to its natural end. We all should stop pretending that ignoring or worse, encouraging death is OK. [Read more]

If only all our Priests, Ministers, Pastors and Deacons stood up for life.
It is about time we stopped being afraid and stood up to be counted. Take a leaf out of this Catholic priest's book.
Right now, a storm is gathering for people of faith, for parents who want to raise their children according to their beliefs, for babies in the womb, for older Australians in the twilight of their lives, and for your right to speak freely. Your religious freedom and freedom of expression is threatened like never before, and the sanctity of human life is rejected in ways that would have been impossible to imagine just a short time ago. It is no longer possible to sit back and do nothing. We Christians all have a responsibility to fight back. Join us! Fight with us!

Right to Life Western Australia (WA) seeks to protect and advocate for life from conception to its natural end. Motivated by our Christian faith and compassion we create and distribute relevant, well-researched written and visual material that educates, informs and convinces Western Australians and their law-makers.
Since 1979, Right to Life WA has been a space for like-minded, individuals to work together in promoting and advocating for life from conception until its natural end. The organisation has hosted numerous pro-life conferences, with Mother Theresa as the key-note speaker in 1981. From its beginning, Right to Life WA has created and distributed written and visual content in communities across WA, lobbied politicians and counselled those affected by unplanned pregnancy and abortion.
