Right to Life emphatically opposes the new 0800 telephone “service” that Dr Simon Snook an abortionist, has established to enable women considering an abortion to have the killing of their child authorised over the phone without the need for a doctor to interview the woman.
Right to Life Patron, Dr Norman Maclean, MNZM, a distinguished retired Obstetrician and Gynaecologist of Invercargill, is appalled at this development. He describes it as unprofessional, unethical, shameful and a gross trivialising of a very serious legal process.
Right to Life asks how can a doctor claim to diagnose serious mental ill health issues in a woman he has never met, whom he does not know, whose medical history he does not have, whom he cannot examine and whom he may never see again. How can a doctor with a modicum of conscience sign a certificate authorising the killing of an innocent and defenceless child on the basis of a brief telephone conversation? Who will protect women and their precious unborn from this cruel charade?
Simon Snook has been the subject of a number of Right to Life Media releases over the last few years. These releases can be viewed at the bottom of this post.
Right to Life believes that it is reasonable to assume that the Abortion Supervisory Committee that presides over the abortion industry in New Zealand is aware of this development and has given approval for its establishment. if this is so then Parliament should seriously consider replacing the Committee.
