ALRANZ using front website to target medical professionals

ALRANZ caught using a front website to target NZ medical professionals

Brendan Malone of The Leading Edge blog.com has just published an exclusive article exposing the Abortion Law Reform Association of NZ (ALRANZ) for their dishonesty and hypocrisy in using a new front website to target NZ medical professionals who don’t share their political and ideological views on abortion.

ALRANZ have failed to disclose that they are the owners of the new website mydecsion.org.nz, either on the website itself or in the official media release about the website yesterday.

“Not only have they failed to disclose this important fact, but they have even used deliberately misleading statements, such as the claim that this website is a “new grassroots project” in their official media release” says Brendan Malone of the Leading Edge Blog.com.

“This website exposes ALRANZ as an organisation riddled with grave hypocrisy. Just last year they strongly condemned a group of Southland pro-lifers who had requested that their local DHB release the details of practitioners who were participating in abortions in their local area so that pro-life people in Southland had the option to use alternative providers who did not carry out abortions if they so desired. ALRANZ called this “bullying” and “intimidation”, and they were vehement and did not hold anything back in their public condemnation of the proposal to publicise the names of NZ medical practitioners who carried out abortions.”

“Yet, what ALRANZ is doing here is actually far worse because they have set up a website where people can make anonymous allegations against any medical practitioner or crisis pregnancy service without any acceptable standard of proof, or any basic natural justice protections for those New Zealanders who are being publicly accused on this website,” says Mr Malone.

“This website is highly unethical and almost certainly leaves ALRANZ open to serious legal ramifications whenever false allegations are made on their new website – something that is inevitable given the nature of this site.”

“This is probably why they have made the calculated decision to deliberately hide their involvement in this ugly attempt to target NZ medical practitioners and crisis pregnancy centres who exercise their legal right to not refer for abortions” says Brendan Malone.
