Stop Family Planning was pleased at the turnout at a march in Wellington today organised to oppose the Family Planning Association's application for an abortion licence.

March organiser and Stop Family Planning spokesperson Simeon Brown said that the turnout indicated strong support for their call for the Abortion Supervisory Committee to deny the Family Planning Association an abortion licence to kill babies with the dangerous abortifacient, Mifepristone.

"Hundreds braved the wild Wellington weather to express their concern at the Family Planning Association being given a licence to perform abortions in their clinics," said Mr Brown.

Currently, 18,000 abortions are committed in New Zealand every year.

"We all agree that too many abortions are occurring in New Zealand. If this application is approved it will only increase that number", he continued. "The voice of New Zealand is clear. The Abortion Supervisory Committee must deny the FPA a licence to kill pre-born children up to 9weeks."

Stop Family Planning will continue to oppose the Family Planning Association being granted an abortion licence.
