Live in NZ? Kiwi voter living in the UK? Email your MP asking them to vote against the Government’s extreme abortion up to birth bill

If you are New Zealand voter, please urgently email your MPs asking them to vote against this extreme abortion Bill on Thursday.

You can do this by following the easy steps below.

1. Quickly draft an email

It is far better if this email is in your own words, but if you don’t have time, we have written up a quick email below which you can use.

Please be charitable, polite and respectful in the messages you send to MPs.

Please contact as many MPs as you can. Individual emails are the most effective, especially if you are contacting your local MP.

IF WRITING YOU OWN EMAIL – PLEASE CONVEY THE FOLLOWING POINTS

  • Vote NO to the Abortion Legislation Bill on Thursday.
  • The Bill removes the current restrictions that only allow abortions after 20 weeks to save the life of the mother or to protect from serious harm and replaces them with loose and arbitrary criteria.
  • In the small number of Australian states that have similar ‘abortion up to birth’ provisions these provision in practice have allowed for abortion to be available for any reason right through to birth.
  • This would also, in practice, lift the current time limit for disability-selective abortions for babies including those with Down’s syndrome from 20-weeks, right through to birth.
  • The Bill contains no substantial provisions to offer women alternatives to abortion.
  • If you have a personal story about abortion, unplanned pregnancy, or anything else that might be relevant to this Bill then please share that too.
  • Make it clear that this is an important issue to you and how the MP votes on Thursday will determine whether you vote for them in the next election.


IF DON’T HAVE TIME TO WRITE AN EMAIL, PLEASE USE THE FOLLOWING COPY

Dear MP,

I am writing to you to ask you to vote NO to the Abortion Legislation Bill on Thursday.

The Bill removes the current restrictions that only allow abortions after 20 weeks to save the life of the mother or to protect from serious harm and replaces them with loose and arbitrary criteria.

In the small number of Australian states that have similar ‘abortion up to birth’ provisions, these provision in practice have allowed for abortion to be available, for any reason, right through to birth.

This would also, in practice, lift the current time limit for disability-selective abortions for babies including those with Down’s syndrome from 20-weeks, right through to birth.

As a voter, this is the most important issue to me, and how you vote on Thursday will determine who I vote for in the next election.

Please vote NO on Thursday.
