“Silent Witness” at Southland Hospital – Thursday 6th Dec


MEDIA RELEASE

5 December 2012

Southlanders for Life

“Silent Witness” at Southland Hospital – Thursday 6th December, 11am-12pm

Unfortunately the Southern District Health Board has refused to listen to the overwhelming displeasure of the local community in having its precious “health dollar” spent providing a “service” that harms women and takes the life of the innocent and vulnerable in our society.

Therefore, Southlanders for Life are calling on the community to defend the value of all human life for one hour in a “Silent Witness” in front of Southland Hospital to encourage the Southern District Health Board to end its newly established abortion service. This will begin on Thursday morning, 6th December, 11am-12pm and will be a peaceful non-confrontational demonstration.

Further demonstrations will take place at the same time on Thursdays 13th & 20th December and will commence again in February 2013.

Southlanders for Life wish to reiterate that we are committed to respecting the life and human rights of all people born and unborn and advocates for this in ways that are peaceful and non-violent.

ENDS
