The Wilberforce Award

The William Wilberforce Award is awarded for outstanding demonstrations by parliamentarians for protecting life, freedom, family and the foundational Christian values that under-gird these areas. We do not give out these awards lightly!

In 2007

On 18th September 2007, at the William Wilberforce Breakfast, the Australian Christian Values Institute, along with many other Christian & pro-family groups awarded the following parliamentarians the William Wilberforce Award for Life, Freedom & Family.

These awards were based on the fact that the following parliamentarians voted for life by voting against either the ‘Therapeutic Goods Amendment (Repeal of Ministerial Responsibility for Approval of RU486) Bill 2005 and/or the ‘Prohibition of Human Cloning for Reproduction and the Regulation of Human Embryo Research Amendment Bill 2006’.
