Following is a very important article about stopping the torture of unborn children, written by Christopher Monckton of Brenchley.
Rise Up Australia Party has launched a major new campaign to protect babies being killed by abortion in Victoria from being tortured by abortionists during the death procedure.
Though the 2008 Abortion Law Reform Act in Victoria exempts abortionists who kill unborn children from prosecution for murder, the Federal 2010 Criminal Legislation Amendment (Torture Prohibition and Death Penalty Abolition) Act, which takes precedence over Victorian law, makes the torture of any person by or with the consent or acquiescence of any public official a criminal offence punishable by 20 years in prison.
Pastor Daniel Nalliah, founder and leader of Rise Up Australia Party, launched the campaign with a crowd of Rise Up Australia supporters on 10 November 2014 outside the “Fertility Control” and “Day Procedure” abortion abattoirs at 116-118 Wellington Parade, Melbourne.

Pastor Daniel said that unborn puppies had more rights in Victoria than unborn children of our own species. It was unacceptable, he said, that in a society that called itself civilized unborn children should not only be killed but tortured before they were killed.
Unborn children of 17 weeks’ gestation or more, he said, were fully capable of experiencing the trauma and suffering of their own death-agony. Yet the law did not require them to be given an anaesthetic before they were torn limb from limb or soaked in caustic salts or injected to the heart with a painful and fatal poison.
A lone protester shrieked that the foetus (the name she gave to the unborn child) was a part of the woman’s body. It had no rights. The campaign to prevent the torture of unborn children, she yelled, was an attempt to subjugate women.
Councillor Rosalie Crestani, a City of Casey councillor and Rise Up Australia Party executive member, disagreed with the protester. She read out a letter from Pastor Daniel to the leaders of all parties currently represented in the Victorian Parliament, describing the many cruel methods of baby-killing permitted in Victoria, and provided evidence that children in the womb are capable of feeling pain and experiencing suffering.
Lord Monckton told the Rise Up Australia demonstration that the party was giving legislators fair warning that if they did not pass a law ensuring that every unborn child of 17 weeks’ gestation or more was given an anaesthetic before he or she was killed they could themselves be found guilty of the Federal offence of torture.
No Crown immunity or Parliamentary privilege could be pleaded, he said.
A cameraman who said he was from Channel 7 briefly filmed the rally from the far side of Wellington Parade. He did not film what the three Rise Up Australia speakers said. But he crossed the road and filmed the lone protestor against the rally at some length, saying “Well done!” to her after he had finished filming.
The rally then moved to the steps of the Victoria Parliament in Spring Street. Pastor Daniel, accompanied by Lord Monckton, climbed the steps and handed in letters addressed to the Premier, Dr Dennis Napthine (Lib/Nat), and to the Leader of the Opposition, Mr Daniel Andrews (ALP).
Pastor Daniel plans to write to all newly-elected members of both Houses of the Parliament of Victoria after the November 29 election to invite them to contact him personally to say what steps they are willing to take to protect unborn children from torture at the hands of abortionists killing them in Victoria.
He said: “It is intolerable that the law does not follow the precautionary principle and require that every unborn child facing death is given a humane injection.”
In response to the party’s initiative in opposition to the torture of unborn children during their death procedures, not only was the number of comments on the Party’s Facebook page high but also 80% supported the party’s stance and only 20% opposed it.
Pastor Daniel has made it clear that Rise Up Australia will not only press for the Federal law on torture to be enforced: it will also continue to campaign for the outright repeal of the Abortion Law Reform Act 2008.
