Media Release

Campaign to Decriminalising Abortion Opposed

Right to Life New Zealand is adamantly opposed to the decriminalising of abortion. Right to Life supports legislation that recognises the humanity and personhood of the unborn child as a member of the human family that is endowed with an inalienable right to life and is deserving of respect and protection.

Right to Life believes that the majority of New Zealanders support protecting the right to life of unborn children.

It is always wrong to kill the innocent. The killing of unborn children the weakest and most defenceless members of the human family in the womb, is a violation of the human rights of unborn children. It is also a violation of the human rights of women who deserve respect and protection for their child in the womb. The” right to choose” is a cruel lie,there is no human right that permits us to choose to kill another human being.

ALRANZ, the spokesman for a culture of death, with a national membership of less than 200, does not represent the views of women and ordinary New Zealanders, its proposal to decriminalise abortion is a threat to the wellbeing of women.

ALRANZ knows that before we can decriminalise abortion we must first deny the humanity of unborn children.

The decriminalising of abortion would be a denial of the humanity and personhood of the unborn child. It would mean that it is no longer a crime to kill an unborn child. This is an important justice issue. The denial of the humanity of Negroes gave us slavery.

The denial of the humanity of Jews gave us the Holocaust. If today we allow the denial of the human rights of unborn children by the decriminalisation of abortion, which vulnerable section of our community will be next?
