‘Australian taxpayer money funds Planned Parenthood operations in the Asia-Pacific region and Mr Newman’s visit promises to shed light on the abortion provider’s murky activities.’…”

strong words from the Australian Christian Lobby, who have also launched a petition calling on the Immigration Minister to reverse the decision to deny Mr Newman a visa.

From Bible Society Australia:

The SMH is reporting, “Counsel for the Commonwealth gave the undertaking not to immediately remove Mr Newman at a hearing in Melbourne before High Court justice Geoffrey Nettle on Thursday evening, at which counsel for Mr Newman sought to have the decision to bar him from Australia overturned.”

On Thursday afternoon Immigration Minister Peter Dutton agreed to not deport Newman for 24 hours.

Eternity understands the matter will be decided this afternoon.

Update: What the Aussie Media has not told you about Troy Newman – John Sandeman.
