Pro-Life Australian Senator Mockingly Announces Gender Change So He Can Speak Out on Abortion.
WFB: A male Australian senator mockingly proclaimed himself to be a woman before parliament last week so that he, as a pro-life male, could speak against abortion. Barry O’Sullivan made the announcement after being criticized for his faith and told he could not understand abortion because it is a women’s issue, Catholic News Agency reports.
“I’m going to declare my gender today, as I can, to be a woman, and then you’ll no longer be able to attack me,” O’Sullivan said.
Earlier this month, O’Sullivan, who is Catholic, motioned for pro-choice protesters to be banned from the pro-life Day of the Unborn child events. Larissa Waters, a member of the Australian Greens party, suggested O’Sullivan could not understand abortion as a male.
“Senator O’Sullivan needs to get his hands and his rosaries off my ovaries and those of the 10,000 Queensland women who have an abortion each year,” Waters said.
Waters later withdrew her comment because it attacked O’Sullivan’s faith. read more
