- Robinson, Gaye (maiden name)
Gaye Barnes, née Robinson, grew up in Angle Park, Adelaide where her parents ran racing stables. Within an eighteen month period, between the ages of 19 and 20, she had three abortions for personal convenience. This had a profound effect on her resulting in 'a life-altering religious experience' arising out of continuing depression. She later became determined to help others. In 1990 she and her husband Peter, also a Christian, sold their home to establish the non-denominational Genesis Pregnancy Support service at Marden.
