A Christian woman seeking to save saving unborn children has been ruled a criminal. In 2016, Kathy Clubb was arrested for offering help and hope to mothers near an abortion clinic in Victoria. Recent laws had made it illegal for pro-life activists to be within 150 metres of such a facility. She decided to challenge the law since it goes against Australia’s Constitution which grants Australian citizens freedom of political communication. The highest court in Australia dismissed her challenge and forced her to pay fines and all of the court costs.
There’s a bitter irony in the story too. Former Greens leader Bob Brown faced similar charges to Kathy Club for protesting against logging in an exclusion zone. His case was acquitted by the High Court. Since when are trees worth more than babies?
