Anti-abortion club may be disaffiliated

Auckland Now 5 June 2012
An anti-abortion club at Auckland University may be disaffiliated after students complained about being harassed by its members. Auckland University Student Association president Arena Williams has called for a special general meeting next month, which could see ProLife Auckland being barred from associating itself with the university. An announcement for the meeting said the association would consider whether the “Prolife Club be disaffiliated for propagating harmful misinformation [sic]”. “Recently we’ve received complaints from students after [ProLife Auckland] handed out fliers at the campus,” said Williams. “On the fliers there was information which some felt was pressuring them into making different decisions than they normally would.” The “Right to Know” flier carries the slogan: “Hands up if you’ve heard this before: ‘Abortion is a safe, simple medical procedure’.”
