Senator Amanda Stoker, the federal government’s assistant minister for women, promoted her stand against abortions to around 1000 people at a pro-life rally in Brisbane on Saturday.

“It really does baffle me why there are some people who have questioned whether it is appropriate for a person like me to serve as assistant minister for women because I am pro-life,” Stoker said. “They suggest there is some sort of conflict between those two roles.

 
“But in my mind, there is absolutely no conflict possible between supporting women and supporting the most vulnerable people in our community.”

Stoker said it was clear that some women faced conflicts in their pregnancies and were forced to terminate them.

“But we should be providing care and support for those women, so they know that terminating their pregnancy is not their only option,” she said.

Stoker was one of three Queensland senators to speak at the now annual pro-life rally in Brisbane: fellow LNP senator Matt Canavan and One Nation senator Malcolm Roberts also spoke. Retiring Dawson MP George Christensen was invited by Cherish Life Queensland.
 
Police said about 1000 people crowded into Speakers’ Corner outside Parliament House in George Street before marching around the inner city.

Cherish Life Queensland claims to be non-political, but people at the rally were encouraged to place Labor and The Greens last when they vote at the May 21 federal elections.

In an outspoken address, Stoker described as “madness” the skilled training given to doctors – “so they might heal” – for them to subsequently end pregnancies in hospitals.

“It is just wrong that our society seems to be more ready to condemn cruelty against a dog or a cat than it is a human child, even one that is old enough to be capable of life outside the womb.”

National Party senator Canavan, who is a member of Cherish Life Queensland, told reporters last week the federal government’s net zero carbon emission policy was “dead”, only to be severely rebuked by senior Nationals and Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

Canavan said Christians “rose up” at the 2019 federal election against moves by former ALP leader Bill Shorten.

“He would have been prime minister if it wasn’t for a lot of us [Christians],” he said.

“Christians and other faith members got up and voted against the Labor Party in droves. Now the Labor Party is a little bit wary of Christians. They are a little bit scared of us.”

Canavan said he would introduce a private member’s bill to prohibit the Medicare rebate for abortions where a person decides to end a pregnancy after learning the gender of the unborn child is not what they wished.
