The Australian Federation of Right to Life
Associations is a national coalition of pro-life groups which acts to address pro-life
issues at the national level. The Federation works to affirm and protect human life from
human zygote until natural death.
The human zygote begins with the formation of the first cell resulting from the union of
the sperm and the ovum or when a cell comes into existence that has a human genome and the
capacity to develop similar to that of an embryo.
An Australian community which accepts and supports the value of all human lives,
particularly at the very beginning and end of life.
To offer a voice for vulnerable human beings, from their earliest stages as human zygote
until natural death, to affirm and advance the fundamental value of their lives, and to
create a community where those lives can thrive free of abortion, euthanasia or
destructive embryo experimentation.
to promote and foster a new community
culture where mothers and their unborn children are valued, where the interest of mother
and child are not seen as being in conflict, where life-affirming, non-violent solutions
to human problems are offered and where abortion is no longer practised.
to affirm the value of the lives of all
human beings by not deliberately hastening or ending a person's life by action or
omission, or undermining them by suggesting that their life may no longer be worth living,
by offering appropriate support in dying and accepting death as a natural part of life.
to acknowledge that reproductive
technology, while sometime promoted as life-giving, often involves the routine destruction
of human embryos - the tiniest of human beings. The destruction of human lives, at
whatever stage of development, is not a humane and compassionate response to the
challenges many in our community face.
