    I note the 50 years of Right To Life in Canberra celebrated at the Southern Cross Club during this past week. I would like to add some names to those already mentioned, who were instrumental in the establishment of RTLA Act Branch. The Lutheran Minister Pastor Stolz, Fr. Thomas Wright, Kath and Dr. Laurie Woolfe. Prof. Audrey Donnithorne, Kevin Rehir, Ian McKie, Frank Street, Drs. Allan Cowan, Peter Hughes. John Connors, John Barrich, Gwen Gleeson and many others. I was one of the great crowd who gathered outside Parliament house when the first Abortion Bill was soundly defeated in 1973. I would particularly pay tribute to Kath Woolf who for 40 years was either President or vice President. Kath had and still has a razor sharp mind and was responsible for writing many submissions over the years on Pro life issues. Let us not forget those many people who worked tirelessly for many years to keep the RTLA standing up and fighting for the cause of Life. Sadly many of those mentioned have long since gone to their eternal reward. May the Good Lord reward them richly for their Pro Life work.

    Sir Gerard whilst no doubt very distinguished will also be remembered as a genuine and down-to-earth person – not too many High Court chief justices would be seen doing the Vinnies fruit and veg runs at the local markets in khaki shorts and old shirt on Sunday afternoons.
