Right to Life has asked the following seven questions of Jan Logie Spokesperson for the NZ Green Party, on among other things, Women and Rainbow issues. From the Green’s website this is what Jan Logie has to say about herself: ” I am passionate about reducing inequality, eliminating violence and promoting participation in society, locally and globally.”
Pity that generosity of spirit does not seem to extend to the right to life of the unborn child.
Here are our questions to her: We will keep you posted as to what response we get from her.
1 Why are the Greens seeking to establish 20 weeks as a cut off point. What happens at 20 weeks in the development of the child that requires this limit?
2 Are you planning a restrictive bubble around abortion clinics where no one may enter to pray, protest or to offer women seeking an abortion assistance?
3 What action will the law require when doctors refuse to refer a woman seeking an abortion to another doctor who will perform the abortion?
4 You require neutral counsellors what constitutes neutrality?
5 Would you permit abortions after 20 weeks for Down syndrome and Spina Bifida?
6 would you permit sex selection abortions up to 20 weeks and beyond?
7 Is there any requirement for informed consent with women being give information about the alternatives to abortion such as adoption or parenting. The potential complications that might follow an abortion and information about the development of the child?
