Coalition challenged by Conservative Senate motions

November 16, 2017

The Senate sitting week has just concluded, but the parties represented there are still picking through the implications of a flurry of conservative motions Senator Bernardi moved this week.

As the ABC reports this afternoon, some motions caused splits within the Coalition and even abstentions on votes that stated simple, conservative principles.

Whilst some left-wing media outlets described the events as 'nuts' or exaggerated what the motions were about, we list below precisely what the motions stated: 

Supporting Trump administration's move for 7 November as National Day for Victims of Communism (passed)

Logical inconsistency with 'gender fluidity' and 'gender selection abortion'

White Ribbon Australia support for late-term abortions

Better scrutiny of GetUp! 

Commending the NSW Coalition government for abandoning radical gender and sexuality high school course

Commemorating anniversary of the defeat of Islamic forces in Vienna
