This Feisty Pro-Life Political Leader in Australia Just "Declared Himself "Female" after Women Try to Shut down His Voice in Parliament Abortion Debate

Calvin Freiburger : Nov 16, 2018 :

"I will not stand silent, I will not stand mute while these people try to continue to marginalize policies and ideas that we want to discuss for this nation, that I think are largely supported still by the majority of the nation.

"These people come and attack me for my religious basis the other day, using words like rosary beads, because I had the audacity to raise issues around late-term abortions where babies that are only minutes away from getting a smack on the arse and a name are being aborted under the policies of the Australian Greens," he lamented...
