Right to Life believes that one of the reasons for Christopher Luxon’s declining popularity as preferred Prime Minister, is because of his refusal to allow any debate in Parliament under any government he would lead regarding our current abortion laws. The current Abortion Legislation Act 2020 is extreme yet he has stated that he will allow no debate on amending it should he become Prime Minister. We have been advised that that restriction also applies to the End of Life Choice Act 2019.
Those who govern do so with the permission of the governed. The fundamental requirement of those who seek to govern is that they have the trust of electors that they will protect their lives and the lives of their family. Those who are prepared to kill the unborn should not be permitted to govern the born. Right to Life believes that Christopher Luxon has sadly lost that trust.
Right to Life requests that Christopher Luxon becomes the truly pro-life leader that National and our nation desperately needs by seeking the repeal of the Abortion Legislation Act 2020 and legislating for the recognition of the humanity of unborn children endowed by their Creator with an inalienable right to life.
The latest Taxpayer Union Curia poll reveals that Christopher Luxon has declined as preferred Prime Minister to the lowest point since his election as leader of the National Party in November 2021.
