Beware Australia

______________________________________________________________

 

 

 

The catastrophic Australian bushfires that started in September 2019, have killed at least 26 people, destroyed more than 2,000 homes and scorched some eight million hectares (80,000 square kilometers) — an area the size of Ireland. University of Sydney scientists estimate one billion mammals, birds and reptiles have been killed in the fires. The severe conditions have been fueled by a prolonged drought and worsened by climate change, with experts warning that such massive blazes were becoming more frequent and intense. Australia experienced its driest and hottest year on record in 2019, with its highest average maximum temperature of 41.9 degrees Celsius recorded in mid-December.

It is a dire situation and Australians must change their abortion laws, to prevent Great Chastisements after the wild fires.

 

Abortion in Australia is largely regulated by the states and territories rather than the Federal Government. The grounds on which abortion is permitted in Australia vary by jurisdiction. In every state, abortion is legal to protect the life and health of a woman, though each state has a different definition. As of October 2019, all states and territories but South Australia have fully decriminalized abortion, starting with Western Australia in 1998.
