Punished for the Truth
Professor Kuruvilla, Victoria’s Deputy Chief Psychiatrist (a Christian), a professor at three universities, has resigned from Victoria’s Equal Opportunity Commission in a cloud of protest from MPs. Recently he and 150 other health professionals advised a senate committee that ‘the evidence is clear that children who grow up in a family with a mother and a father do better in all parameters than children without.’ (Herald Sun 17/5/12). ‘Dr George is being punished for telling the truth,’ FamilyVoice’s Ros Phillips said.

Desperate for Children
A record number of Australians desperate to start a family are paying an average of $77,000 to get surrogate babies from India. Numbers have risen from 170 four years ago to 394 last year. Research found it cost $176,000 to secure a similar service from the US (Herald Sun 26/5/12). Altruistic (unpaid) Surrogacy is possible in Australia, but there are difficulties. Australians abort around 100,000 perfect babies per year.
