Remove Pregnancy Counselling Australia from the White Pages
On the inset of every White Pages telephone book in Australia is a listing of 24-hour emergency numbers such as poison information centre, alcohol and drug counselling, and the 000 of ambulance, fire and police. There is also the number for Pregnancy Counselling Australia, which appears to be a support service for women on the issue of pregnancy. In reality, the service is run by Right to Life Australia, a political, anti-choice organisation.
This telephone service is unlikely to give unbiased, independent counselling to women. The telephone lines at Pregnancy Counselling Australia are often diverted to the homes of volunteers who are unsupervised and not adequately trained to be "counselling". This service is misleading. It traumatises women and isolates those in need of support.
This petition asks Sensis, the corporation that manages the White Pages, to have Pregnancy Counselling Australia delisted.
We the undersigned request that the listing Pregnancy Counselling Australia be removed from the White Pages.
