"A Woman’s Right to Know" is a downloadable PDF document available to women who are considering an abortion. While it has been produced for woman in the State of Texas, the content is very suitable for NZ woman. The booklet details medical risks of abortion and possible side affects.

TV One’s Willie Jackson will be interviewing Right to Life spokesperson Ken Orr on the topic of Euthanasia on the Eye to Eye programme (Sunday 15th June at 11.30 am). The interview will include discussion with Leslie Martin (Dignity New Zealand) and Jack Jones (Voluntary Euthanasia Society). The interview is bound to contain heated debate and air many of the arguments surrounding this important and controversial topic. Ken Orr will present arguments as to why NZ should never legalise the killing of it’s citizens, regardless of the seemingly humanitarian arguments that we now hear being put forward.
Right to Life New Zealand is disappointed that the book “The Peaceful Pill” has been approved with an R18 classification. It should have been banned as objectionable as the book deals extensively with suicide methods.
The book has no redeeming features; it is an enticement to commit suicide, a threat to the lives of the vulnerable in society and is injurious to the common good. The book unashamedly promotes a culture of death and is opposed to a culture of life by giving details on how to commit suicide and how to travel to Mexico to obtain the lethal prohibited class C drug Nembutal.
Right to Life New Zealand’s Annual General Meeting will be held at Christ The King Parish Centre at 90 Greers Road Burnside on Thursday 24th April 2008 at 7.30 pm
A Christchurch group taking a landmark legal bid to overturn the way abortions are done in New Zealand has won the latest round of its battle in the High Court in Wellington.
After failing in its political fight to change abortion laws, Right to Life New Zealand launched a judicial review in the High Court, claiming that the Abortion Supervisory Committee was failing to safeguard the human rights of unborn children. The committee oversees the more than 15,000 abortions performed each year.
