That the Thames Coromandel District Council ensures the continued right of citizens to exercise free speech and assembly
Dear Friends of life,
A group of courageous pro-lifers have been assembling peacefully for an hour on Friday mornings over the last five years outside the Thames Hospital when abortions are being performed. They peacefully pray and give witness to the right to life of unborn children and to protest at the violence inflicted on women, the second victims of abortion.
They have a legal permit for this activity, which has been issued by the Thames Coromandel District Council.
Very recently, a group of Green Party/ALRANZ pro-abortion activists were issued with a permit to mount a counter-demonstration at exactly the same time and same place. This group has been harassing the pro-life group and have stated that they will not stop until the pro-life group is driven off the street. It appears they want to silence to work of the pro-life group who are simply witnessing to vulnerable women that there is another choice, that they should never feel that abortion is their only option.
We believe that the pro-abortion group have contrived to make a false accusation to the Council and to the Police that one of the pro-life protesters has assaulted a woman. They have now petitioned the Council to cancel the pro-life group's permit.
The Green Party in New Zealand support abortion and we believe that they are using this situation as a test case with the intention of seeking to have legislation introduced, to impose a bubble zone around every hospital and clinic in New Zealand, where unborn children are being aborted. We believe that they seek to prohibit any person praying, or protesting against the intentional ending of the life of the innocent within that zone.
Please sign this petition now which will be sent to The Thames Coromandel District Council.
