Here’s the video from tonight’s event at St John’s Cathedral Parramatta. What a great evening we had thinking about the difference we all can make as the NSW Parliament debates a bill to drastically relax the laws surrounding abortion.
A week and a half ago I did something for the first time in my life. Something I had never expected to do. I rallied together with over 4000 people who gathered at Martin Place, Sydney. We were brought together, from all over the city and beyond, to express our deep concern over the bill […]
The upper house of the NSW Parliament meet today to discuss the Reproductive Health Care Reform Abortion Bill 2019 which passed the lower house less than two weeks ago. On the final day of debate a number of amendments were proposed and defeated. Towards the end of that long discussion there was a particularly striking […]
More than 2 centuries ago we saw one of the very first social media campaigns. In a concerted effort, campaigners used a variety of methods of engagement to make their case. They recognised that those they wanted to appeal to simply weren’t engaged in the issue – the man and woman on the street had […]

A quite excellent documentary by Sally Phillips. Make a cup of something and spend the time watching this.
It’s hard to express the depths of outrage many are feeling over the continued Planned Parenthood scandal. In the latest video release we see a discussion with a senior director from Planned Parenthood in Texas over how to set up and then invoice for the sale of baby parts from abortions. Here are the basic facts […]
Last night, for the umpteenth time, the 1999 film “The Matrix” was on TV. I flicked over and found myself in the middle of the “Battery” scene which is embedded above.
