Teresa Martin: You cannot make me do something that is illegal

“What we’re actually looking at is the destruction of a life, and the law stands for two reasons.
It has an educative role: and it educates the public that the unborn is worthy of protection.
And it also has a protective role: it allows for that woman to stand behind the law and say, ‘You cannot make me do something that is illegal…’
Once we allow anything to be legal – whether it’s gambling, drinking, etc. – it goes higher, it never reduces.”
(Teresa Martin, State President of Cherish Life, regarding abortion in Queensland, Ten Network: The Circle, 16 Nov. 2010)
