Follow up: Pro-life spokesman calls video "sickening"
By Gavin Abraham
CHRISTCHURCH - Pro-life advocate Ken Orr has laid a complaint with police over an online video attacking him and the organisation he represents.
As NZ Catholic first reported last week, a profanity-laden video had been posted on the website YouTube, apparently in response to a High Court judgment released earlier this month.
In his ruling, Justice Forrest Miller said there was "reason to doubt the lawfulness of many abortions authorised by certifying consultants". The ruling came after Mr Orr's society, Right to Life New Zealand, argued that the Abortion Supervisory Committee was not fulfilling its obligations under the 1977 Contraception, Sterilisation and Abortion Act.
