Pro-lifer wins leadership of Australian opposition

Tony Abbott, former Australian health minister, has just become leader of the opposition.

Anthony Ozimic, SPUC's communications manager and an expatriate Australian, told yesterday:
"Tony Abbott has come to international attention as a Catholic whose political record is regarded as reflective of Catholic pro-life teaching. He replaces Malcolm Turnbull, also a Catholic politician but one who has voted against Catholic pro-life teaching. With unborn children increasingly under threat worldwide, the advancement of pro-lifers to the highest ranks of political leadership is greatly to be welcomed."
