Right to Life seeks to raise public awareness of the plight of our unborn children and their mothers. To assist in raising awareness Right to Life has launched a campaign of pro-life advertising on Television New Zealand.

The passing of the infamous Abortion Law Reform Bill by the Victorian Legislative Assembly marks a day of shame in the history of human rights in the State of Victoria. The first duty of the State is to protect the right to life of all of its citizens. It has a special duty to protect the lives of the weak and defenceless in society. The State has an overwhelming interest and duty to protect the lives of its future citizens.
Re Judicial Review of Abortion Supervisory Committee.
The government has a duty to uphold the rule of law. In the event that the Court of Appeal upholds the judgment of the High Court should your Party be in government at that time it would be appreciated if you would give an assurance that your Party would use its influence to ensure that the Abortion Supervisory Committee complies with the requirements of the judgment of the High Court.
Right to Life is disappointed that the Ministry of Justice has refused a request made by the Society to the Abortion Supervisory Committee under the Official Information Act. The request was to provide the names and qualifications of persons appointed by the Committee to a new Abortion Standards Advisory Committee. The refusal represents a serious threat to our civil liberties. The public have a right in a free society to know who are appointed to government bodies and what their qualifications are.
When Gianna Jessen was born, the abortionist was trying to kill her not deliver her. But she survived a saline abortion attempt on her life. Since surviving she has grown up to be hated by many. Why?

This video is now on You Tube and is powerful and disturbing. If this two part video does not touch your heart and spur you to action then as some have commented you may not need prayer but resurrection.

Members are paid for their services from the public purse.
