Media Release 28 August 2022
Nicola Willis, M.P., by adopting an anti-life stance is jeopardising a potentially brilliant political career.
If Nicola Willis is unwilling to protect the unborn child, the weakest and most defenceless member of the human family and the terminally ill, why then should we trust her to protect our lives?
Right to Life believes that Nicola Willis, Deputy Leader of the National Party who aspires to govern us, has because of her anti-life commitment forfeited her right to sit in our Parliament or to seek to govern us.
Those who govern us do so with the permission of the governed. The first duty of those who govern us is to protect the lives of every member of the community from conception to natural death, especially the weakest and most defenceless.
Nicola Willis has violated this requirement to protect our lives by supporting the murder of the unborn up to birth by voting for the anti-life and anti-feminist Abortion Legislation Act, 2020. She also voted against eight amendments that would have provided more protection for the lives of the unborn and protection for mothers.
In 2019 she voted for the End of Life Choice Act that allows doctors to kill their patients with a lethal injection or assist in their suicide.
Nicola Willis M.P., who professes to be Christian, has had the privilege of an elite Christian education at the Samuel Marsden Anglican Collegiate in Karori, Wellington. As a Christian, she will be familiar with the Ten Commandments of God which are written in the hearts of mankind. Right to Life is therefore disappointed that she does not accept that the Fifth commandment of God, Thou shalt not kill, prohibits killing children in the womb and the killing of the terminally ill.
Nicola Willis believes that every woman has the right to kill their children before they are born. On 3rd March 2020 in her address to Parliament at the first reading of the Abortion Legislation Bill she stated, “I will not stand by while they question women’s rights to have autonomy over our own bodies”.
Right to Life asks why she does not accept the right of unborn children who are actually in control of the pregnancy, to be respected and protected while they reside temporarily in their mother’s womb.
We need to show that we can create a world where we can love children and not kill them. A world where adoption is always a better option, a world where we care for women and their children. This is our opportunity to make the grisly performance of abortion like slavery, unthinkable in a civilised modern society.
Right to Life encourages Nicola Willis, who is a loving mother of four beautiful children, to become truly pro-life and to be at the forefront in Parliament in protecting unborn children and their precious mothers by supporting legislation that recognises the unborn child from conception as a human being endowed by its Creator with an inalienable right to life.
