The Right to Life movement in Australia began in Brisbane in 1970 and quickly spread to other states. Queensland Right to Life is that original group and is still connected with some Right to Life groups in other States of Australia and overseas.
Queensland Right to Life is a separate organisation from Right to Life Australia (Victoria).
Sue Hartley from Daughters of Promise speaks briefly about her organisation and how it helps girls become young women without losing their sense of value in a valueless world.

The Girls’ Camp – Daughters of Promise: Wendy Schuster was Camp Leader.
This was a different experience for the girls, but the photos showing the girls’ involvement and happy faces speaks volumes for the event. Obviously the girls loved having their hair styled by professionals, and all looked beautiful decked out in their finery for the Formal Dinner. The teaching they received about self respect, appreciating themselves, and making wise choices showed the values of true daughters of promise. One of the leaders shared her experiences after having an abortion at 17, this gave the girls an opportunity to speak out about these problems, in an open and loving environment. We have made connections for some of the girls to churches in their area, which is a great outcome.
We are very grateful for the staff of “Daughters of Promise” who gave their time free of charge to bless these girls. Many thanks to Sue Hartley for offering this opportunity to these girls who often miss out on these special events through a parent being incarcerated.
Planning for next year is already being considered, we hope this program will go from strength to strength.
