Right to Life is pleased that the people of New Zealand have rejected a culture of death by refusing to elect a Labour/Green government that supported the decriminalisation of abortion. This proposal would have intensified the war against women and violence against unborn children who are the weakest and most defenceless members of the human family. The proposed legislation would have removed unborn children from the protection of the Crimes Act and would have meant that it was no longer a crime to kill an unborn child, for any reason effectively up to birth. It would have exposed women to increased exploitation and abandonment by the father of their child.
The Labour Party has become beholden to groups that are promoting destructive social engineering that undermine the common good.
