Right To Life Preaches Sectarian "Morality"

ALRANZ: Right To Life Preaches Sectarian "Morality"

"Right to Life New Zealand cannot seem to stick to the issues of abortion and euthanasia that its ilk are traditionally obsessed with" Craig Young, ALRANZ Research Officer, noted today.

"Leaving aside their remarks on the legal recognition of same-sex relationships, Right to Life makes some very objectionable comments about the legal enforcement of sectarian religious values on those who do not share them." Mr.Young commented.

"Thankfully, there are decent mainline Protestant (and dissident Catholic) Christians, Jews, humanists and others who do recognise that women should have a right to control their own reproductive bodies amongst other issues of social justice, democratic ethics and humane moral values. It is arrogant and sectarian to claim that one religious or philosophical group has the right to impose its views on those who regard those values as destructive and inhumane."

"Get back on issue, Messrs Coleman and Orr. ALRANZ is still waiting."
