14,164 unborn New Zealand children murdered by State in 2022!

Media Release 3rd November 2023

Human life begins at conception and every unborn child a human being endowed by its Creator with an inalienable right to life. The child is a unique and unrepeatable miracle of His loving creation.

She was pleased that access and equity to abortion care had increased and that they had succeeded in doubling the workforce from 162 to 348 of those prepared to participate in the killing of the innocent unborn.

Right to Life respectfully asks Dr Sarfati, how can you derive pleasure as a w
