AUCKLAND, NZ, December 17, 2003 ( – A recently released report from New Zealand’s Abortion Supervisory Committee reveals that abortionists have to be flown in from overseas.  The report also reveals that the country is having trouble with “recruitment and retention” of abortionists.

  New Zealand’s own physicians are unwilling to perform the abortions. Nurses are also being recruited and flown in to the country as support staff for the abortionists.

New Zealand’s abortion rate is climbing.  There were 17,380 abortions performed last year.  Read the coverage of the report at:,,3882-2924855,00.html   Read prior LifeSiteNews coverage:  “Most young British doctors are refusing to kill unborn babies,” at:
