Right to Life is opposed to the Labour Green government’s torture of unborn children!

Media Release 20 July 2023

Right to Life has presented a complaint to the United Nations Committee in Geneva against the Labour-Green government of New Zealand for inflicting torture on our unborn which we hold to be in violation of the UN Convention against torture.

The UN Committee is reviewing the performance of our government in upholding the Convention this month, their last review was in 2015.

The complaint is that the government has implemented a state authorised and funded system of torture inflicted on innocent and defenceless unborn children.

Every year more than 13 000 unborn New Zealanders are inflicted with torture and death. We believe that this treatment of our unborn children is in violation of the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment.
