A petition by Pamela Mcllwrith, commenced on 22nd April, with the aim of getting the government to hold a referendum to give New Zealanders the opportunity to decide whether the Abortion Legislation Act 2020 should be repealed. In just three days it has had 14,000 signatures. We believe this illustrates the degree of opposition to this legislation and to the way the government rode roughshod over the citizens of this country to advance its pernicious abortion agenda. The petition closes on 21st May.
Right to Life encourages as many possible to sign.
That the House of Representatives urge the Government to urgently hold a referendum to allow the New Zealand people the opportunity to have their say on whether the Abortion Legislation Act 2020 should be repealed.
In my view the abortion legislation was rushed through Parliament while the entire country was distracted with COVID-19. I think there needs to be a referendum so the people can have their say—MPs should not be able to vote against giving the people their say in such important matters, especially a law legalising full term abortion.
