Right to Life is deeply disappointed at the 18,380 abortions reported for 2007. This is the second highest number of abortions reported in New Zealand. It is 450 more abortions than the 17,930 reported in 2,006.
Each abortion is a tragedy for the unborn child that is destroyed and for the mother who is the second victim of abortion. Abortion is the ultimate in domestic violence and in child abuse; women will not be safe until the law effectively protects them and their unborn.
