Hi All,

Watch This Space, Pro-Life Action

It’s been a little while since our last email contact, but we are now in a position to announce that Unity for Liberty will be hosting the concept of

Liberty for the Unborn.

Current status, the web site where Unity for Liberty will be hosting “Liberty for the Unborn” should be up and running in approximately a month from now.

The concept of “Liberty for the Unborn” is to firstly help create a culture within the life of the Christian audience that is aimed to develop a higher awareness of the issues surrounding the unborn. With the ultimate goal of bringing a clear message of concern to the wider public.

Sounds like hard work?

NO, not really and with no real strings attached.

All the details will be on the upcoming web site, however we can inform you a little about what you should expect.

This web site will provide a neutral zone “Prayer Room”. Through this Prayer Room we will release updates concerning what is currently happening within the Pro-Life arena and also “Liberty for the Unborn” activities. You will need to register to receive these Prayer Requests.

Must Read. Below is a press release from “Right to Life”, our Prayer updates will include these types of messages (a brief description with a link to a main story).

The severity of this message has prompted me to release this email update concerning “Liberty for the Unborn” for your attention, there is a real battle raging at present in which we should all be very much aware.

PS When the new web site is functioning registration will be required to receive updates, the mail list for Unity for Liberty will remain at U4L and not be used for “Liberty for the Unborn”. We will send out the odd update before then so you may have a sample of what to expect.

Government Imposes Secrecy on the Identity of Appointees to Abortion Advisory Committee

The Ministry of Justice has refused a request under the Official Information Act to provide the names and qualifications of persons appointed by the Abortion Supervisory Committee to a new advisory committee. Right to Life is disappointed that its request for this information has been refused. It represents a serious threat to our civil liberties. The public have a right in a free society to know who are appointed to government bodies and to know what their qualifications are. The secret members of this committee are appointed by the Abortion Supervisory Committee under the authority of the Contraception Sterilisation and Abortion Act. Members are paid for their services from the public purse.

The Prime Minister the Right Honourable Helen Clark consistently maintains that government should be open and transparent. It is an outrage that her government is now denying the people of New Zealand the right to know who these secret members are and what there qualifications are.

The Standards Committee is very important; its duty is to develop standards for the provision of abortion services in New Zealand. These standards could influence the lawfulness of abortions and affect the health and welfare of vulnerable women and the lives of their unborn children.  The Abortion Supervisory Committee is deliberately ignoring a High Court judgment that put the Committee on notice for failing to fulfil its statutory duties. Justice Miller in the High Court in his judgment on 9 June stated that; “there is reason to doubt the lawfulness of many abortions authorised by certifying consultants. Indeed, the Committee itself has stated that the law is being used more liberally than Parliament intended.” Is the Committee now using secrecy to appoint doctors to this important Standards Committee who are responsible for unlawful abortion on demand?

It is imperative that the persons appointed to this Standards Committee are committed to implementing the judgment of Justice Miller by stopping the current unlawful abortion on demand, ensuring that abortions are lawful and that certifying consultants are not using mental health grounds to provide abortion on demand. It is important that persons appointed are committed to protecting the health and welfare of women and ensuring that the right to life of unborn children receives the full protection of the law. Right to Life calls upon the Minister of Justice to release to the public the names of the persons appointed to the abortion Standards Committee.
