Abortion a health issue Little tells Law Commission

Abortion law reform under the guise of a health issue is a high priority on the Government’s agenda with Andrew Little sending a letter today to the Law Commission.

The urgency is such that Mr Little has requested that existing projects be put aside so that the Law Commission can carry out its review and report back within eight months.

Little asks for advice on alternative approaches within the legal framework to ensure New Zealand’s abortion laws treat abortion as a health issue.


Abortion Supervisory Committee wrong to call abortion health care

Family Life International NZ Press Release 16 February 2018

The Abortion Supervisory Committee’s call for greater access to abortion as health care and specifically for the people in South Auckland is of serious concern.

“Healthcare is about providing the medical needs of patients,” says Michelle Kaufman, Director of Family Life International “Health care does not end the life of one for the convenience of the other.”

“Abortion is not health care it kills one person.”


Respect for human life an absolute and basic principle

“A great prayer for life is urgently needed, a prayer which will rise up throughout the world.”  Saint Pope John Paul II called for this prayer in his great encyclical letter “Evangelium Vitae”.

The fulfilment of this request happens in a very special way during Lent, as people throughout the world gather outside abortion facilities in their local communities to pray for an end to abortion and to stand in witness to the grave crime that happens every day in our midst.

Although there have been several attempts to legalise euthanasia and/or assisted suicide through member’s bills over the years, it has been more than a decade since draft legislation was last debated in the House.

David Seymour’s End of Life Choice Bill is the first to have passed the first reading and go to select committee.

The purpose of the End of Life Choice Bill

The purpose of the Bill, as explained in the General Policy Statement, is to give “people with a terminal illness or a grievous and irremediable medical condition the option of requesting assisted dying.”

It is a new year, we hold hopes, dreams and goals for ourselves, and for the causes we hold dear to us.
