“...we know that there were over 4,000 submissions [against RU486]. Of this number approx 2,000 will be regarded as "correspondence" because they addressed issues other than therapeutic aspects. Another 1,000 were "form" letters and will also be disregarded. These 3,000 "submissions" were all against making RU486 available. 1,100 were regarded as legimate submissions. 1,000 approx were against RU486, 100 for it, a ratio of 10 to 1. Given the overall total, the ratio was 40 to 1.”   source: NaCl  http://nacl.com.au

About A.F.F.

We have been full time lobbyists for Aussie families since 1983.  AFF is dedicated to upholding Biblical family values, promoting a Biblical Christian worldview, and educating and mobilising concerned individuals to positively affect their homes, communities, country and world.

We not only encourage Christians to be "salt" and "light", but provide credible strategies for doing so.  One of our specific goals is the removal of pornography from the family marketplace where children have access.
