On the web site of the Abortion Law Reform Association of New Zealand there are a number of cameos that represent the philosophy of that Association. Right to Life takes this opportunity to comment on this philosophy. It is in the interest of women and their unborn that we listen with respect to what is being advocated by those who believe that abortion is a woman’s right to choose.
New Zealand Women Deserve the Right to Choose. Right to Life totally supports the absolute right of women to choose if they wish to become pregnant and have a child. In the event of a woman not being married and desiring not to have a child she should refrain from sexual intercourse which has as its end the pro-creation of children. When a woman is pregnant she then has a responsibility and privilege to protect and nurture the child in her womb. For her, the choice is to have a live baby or a dead baby. She has a right to receive the love and support of the community to bring her child to birth. ALRANZ seeks to empower women yet half the children aborted are female children in utero. They are unique and unrepeatable miracles of creation and they should be able to grow up to be mothers and contribute to society. The authentic feminist position is to defend the right to life of every child. Right to Life believes that no woman freely chooses to kill her child before birth.
