Right to Life New Zealand totally supports abortion being retained in the Crimes Act 1961,it is opposed to the decriminalization of abortion proposed by Family Planning and the Abortion Law Reform Association..

- Family Planning and the Abortion Law Reform Association support the killing of unborn children, they are advocates for a culture of death, they do not represent the genuine voice of women in New Zealand. The Family Planning Association is an affiliate of the International Planned Parenthood which promotes abortion worldwide and is supportive of the United Nations in pressurising nations especially in the third world to decriminalize the killing of unborn children and to remove legal protection for their right to life.

- Abortion is in the Crimes Act, under Part VIII, Crimes Against the Person because Parliament has recognized that the killing of an unborn child is a crime against the weakest and most defenceless member of the human family. The decriminalisation of abortion would mean that it would no longer be a crime to kill an unborn child.

- Decriminalisation denies that the unborn child is a human being endowed with human rights.

- Decriminalisation would effectively provide for abortion on demand up to birth for any reason or no reason if the mother wished.

- Decriminalisation would be an assault on human rights, the dignity of women and an assault on the conscience of the nation.

- Parliament has a solemn duty to protect the human rights of the weak and vulnerable in society. It would be an appalling injustice for Parliament to withdraw legal protection for the right to life of unborn children, the weakest and most vulnerable members of the human family.

- Family Planning and the Abortion Law Reform Association are advocates for a culture of death, they do not represent the genuine voice of women in New Zealand. The Family Planning Association is an affiliate of the International Planned Parenthood which promotes abortion worldwide and is supportive of the United Nations in pressurizing nations especially in the third world to decriminalize the killing of unborn children and to remove protection for their right to life.

Human life begins at conception, at the moment of conception our Creator bestows on the newly created person inalienable human rights, the foundation right being a right to life. From the moment of conception the unborn child should be accorded the respect and protection due to the human person.

Abortion is a crime in New Zealand and is found in the Crimes Act 1961, in the section for crimes against the person, section 182. Killing Unborn child-. The section states that on conviction for killing an unborn child one may be imprisoned for a term not exceeding 14 years. The Crimes Act also provides that in rare and unusual circumstances an abortion may be permitted under section 187A.

It is appalling that at this time, when there is increasing evidence of the physical, psychological and spiritual damage inflicted on women by abortion that we would contemplate the decriminalisation of abortion. Right to Life is opposed to the war against our own children and will vigorously campaign against this proposed lethal attack. What future does a nation have that kills its own children?
