    Family Integrity #449 — U4L, Progress update and important Prayer Request

    By HEF Admin | May 4, 2009

    Subject: U4L, Progress update and important Prayer Request

    Hi All,

    Prayer Alert for your information,

    Also, firstly, a quick update on Unity for Liberty. We are currently working on modifying this web site and you should see changes within the month.

    And secondly, the “Liberty for the Unborn” website will being renamed “Liberty for the Pre-born”, graphics are being changed at the moment. The site has been a long time in the wings but will be operational in the very near future.


    Please read carefully


    The Abortion Supervisory Committee (ASC) is appealing the recommendations made by

    the High Court judge, Justice Miller, at the Right to Life court case 9th June 2008.

    Justice Miller “found that there is reason to doubt the lawfulness of many abortions

    authorised by certifying consultants.”

    Right to Life will seek to have the Court uphold the finding of Justice Miller that “the

    ASC has a statutory duty to hold certifying consultants accountable for the lawfulness of

    many abortions authorised by certifying consultants.”

    Right to Life has cross appealed and is also seeking to “have the Court of Appeal overturn the

    decision of Justice Miller to deny the status of the unborn child as a person entitled to receive

    the protection of the bill of Rights Act.”  Section 8, “Right Not to Be Deprived of Life”, states:

    “No one shall be deprived of life except on such grounds as are established by law and are

    consistent with the principles of fundamental justice.”

    Under current legislation in NZ the unborn child does not become a human being until it is

    born.  Right to Life sees this court case as an “unprecendented opportunity to establish in

    law, that the unborn child is a human being from conception, endowed at conception

    with human rights, the foundation being the right to life.”

    Lawyer, Ian, has prepared “a brilliant 40 page submission in support of the personhood of

    the unborn child.” (Right to Life)

    The Crown on behalf of the ASC opposes the legal recognition of the unborn child as

    a person endowed with human rights.

    Details of the up-coming court case:

    Date: 12-13 May, ‘09

    Place: Court of Appeal, Wellington

    Pro-life lawyers: Peter and Ian

    Crown Counsel: someone from the Crown Law Office

    Judges: 3 person panel
