Mine shafts search at Coober Pedy for teenager Karen Williams's remains finds nothing

From abc.net.au, Thursday 1 August

South Australian police are winding down a search at outback Coober Pedy after checking old mine shafts for the remains of teenager Karen Williams.
The girl, 16, was last seen alive in December 1990 after a night out with friends in the town. State Emergency Service volunteers and police have been digging out old shafts in the town but have found nothing significant. Detective Superintendent Des Bray said police were still following other lines of investigation. "There would be more than one person with intimate knowledge of this and possibly involved so those people that were involved in any way either before, during or after the murder we will focus very heavily on that side of the investigation and as I said it's progressing extremely well," he said.




$11.80 to kill Australian babies

FamilyVoice Australia
“It is tragic that Australian women can now abort their babies from as little as $11.80,” FamilyVoice research officer Ros Phillips said on 2 August.
The abortion drugs Mifepristone (RU486) and another drug taken in conjunction, Misoprostol, are now available through the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme.
“This controversial medication destroys the developing fetus in the womb by depriving him or her of nourishment. Another drug (Misoprostol) is then given to help expel the dead baby. This process may be extremely painful and lead to heavy blood loss and infection. Some women, including at least one Australian, have died of septicaemia as a result.
An SA study of 7,000 abortions found a significantly higher percentage of complications after RU486 abortions compared with surgical abortions,” Mrs Phillips said.
Last month, the journal Psychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences also published a study showing that women face a significantly higher risk of mental illness following an abortion compared with an unplanned birth.*
“Is Health Minister Tanya Plibersek aware of the many women who have suffered as a result of abortion, and deeply regret their decision?” Mrs Phillips asked.
As counsellor Anne Lastman points out in her book Redeeming Grief, abortion trauma and grief does not start the moment the woman leaves the abortion clinic. It can start any time, during the decision making process prior to the abortion, or at any time from then on, even as much as forty or fifty years later. Psychological problems arise when a woman suppresses the emotions involved.
“The federal government is currently making cigarettes significantly more expensive, in the interests of public health. It is astonishing that the same government is making more cheaply available a death drug which harms women and kills babies,” Ros Phillips said.


Lynn Breuer, local MP: "I support gay marriage and I will stand up before anyone and say so."
