Dear Members and Supporters,
Help Save the Children’s Commissioner
Right to Life encourages our members and supporters to sign this petition. The petition is being run by Save the Children. Petition closes 9 February 2022
Right to Life believes that it is imperative that we retain the office of Children’s Commissioner. which this government wants to do away with. It is our belief that the Commissioner should also be an advocate for the rights of unborn children who are under relentless attack.
Save the Children, along with other organisations, has called for an extension on the consultation process, but this has been denied. Save the Children New Zealand and its supporters are calling on the Government to ensure:
- That the named role of a Children’s Commissioner with a designated term of office is guaranteed;
- That the authority of the Children’s Commissioner to report directly to the Prime Minister with or without invitation is retained;
- That the Bill does not progress any further until the Government undertakes a thorough consultation with children to enable them to share their voice on development of the new Children’s and Young People’s Commission.
