Right to Life needs your generous support. Together we can achieve more in the battle to protect those whose lives are at risk. Not only are unborn children and their mothers just as at risk as ever but the threat of Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide now loom on the horizon. Right to Life is committed to exposing the injustice of Abortion and the threat of Euthanasia to our society. We do this primarily by lobbying politicians in parliament and by substantial letter writing to government and other bodies, by making media releases, by taking Court action and by ensuring those who are responsible for the administration of our laws do so in a way that honours those laws. Although Right to Life’s long running battle to hold the Abortion Supervisory Committee responsible for supervising the practices of Certifying Consultants was lost by a narrow margin in the Supreme Court in August 2012, it was a close fought battle lost only 3 to 2. Several important concessions were won in the decision but we did incur a cost of over $72,000 dollars awarded against us when the ASC demanded that court costs be paid. This has been possible only through your generous support. Another case we have been involved in with the High Court is in a battle with New Zealand Family Planning who having established a new Medical Abortion Clinic in Tauranga wished to expand these ‘clinics’ across the country. The last thing New Zealand needs is new ways of killing our most precious asset the unborn child.
Your support is crucial in continuing this important battle on behalf of the unborn child, but also in fighting for the lives of our sick, elderly and disabled whose lives look to be increasingly at risk due to the strident call by activists for a change to our laws relating to Euthanasia and the push for doctors to be legally allowed to kill their patients. As at November 2015 Act Party leader David Seymour has a euthanasia bill in the ballot box. It could be drawn at any time and it is vitally important that we have funds available to fight this pernicious proposal. Other bills advocating for the right for doctors to kill their patients loom on the horizon. For this and for many other life issues Right to Life is seeking your support to help us ensure the rights of the weak and defenseless in our country are protected.
