On Wednesday, March 18, 2020, New Zealand decriminalized abortion.
“It’s been a long time coming,” said Margaret Sparrow, a doctor who dedicated her life to championing for looser abortion laws.
Until the passage of this bill on Wednesday, the procedure was still subject to regulations under the Crimes Act, which requires women to demonstrate to a doctor that their pregnancy poses a danger to their physical or mental health before going through an abortion.
According to Justice Minister Andrew Little, this requirement compelled most women to lie about their mental health and caused unnecessary delays that could have brought further health risks.
The new law removes those restrictions, allowing women who are 20 weeks into a pregnancy to undergo an abortion. Women over 20 weeks into a pregnancy have to get approval from a health practitioner.
Lawmakers voted 68 to 51 in support of the bill.
Conservative lawmaker Simeon Brown was in opposition to the bill. He believes an unborn child had a heartbeat and felt pain, thus should be considered as a person that merits dignity, respect, and protection under the law.
Jackie Edmond, the chief executive of Family Planning, New Zealand’s largest abortion vendor, said she was delighted with the vote.
“It’s fantastic Parliament has addressed something that they should have addressed 40 years ago,” Edmond declared.
With the election of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern in 2017, New Zealand has taken a radical turn to the Left on issues like guns and now abortion.

Humanitarian Organization Deploys Field Hospital to New York City
Samaritan’s Purse, a humanitarian aid organization based in North Carolina, announced on March 27, 2020 that they are sending a convoy of trucks carrying one of their Emergency Field Hospitals to New York City.
New York City is the epicenter of the Wuhan virus pandemic in America. Samaritan’s Purse staff is already on the field making preparations and a team of medical personnel, made up of doctors, nurses, and other healthcare specialists, are currently heading to the city.
Right now, New York City hospital are being strained with patients and are running out of beds and ventilators. One hospital is already placing two patients on a single ventilator machine. So far, north of 23,000 people in New York City have the Wuhan virus with the number of new cases nearly doubling every three days.
Samaritan’s Purse plans on adding 68 beds, which includes an ICU and a respiratory care unit.
The organization is also responding to the Wuhan virus crisis in Cremona, Italy, which is the worst affected area outside of United States.
Samaritan’s Purse donated 55,000 masks this week to hospitals and health facilities across North Carolina.
Franklin Graham, the President of the Samaritan’s Purse, declared:
God has called Samaritan’s Purse to rush into crisis areas to save lives and to share the Good News that Jesus Christ paid for our sins on the Cross and rose from the grave to save all who put their faith in Him. No matter where we go, our goal is the same—to be the hands and feet of Jesus, and to share His love with those in need.
Samaritan’s Purse action shows how America’s vigorous civil society is tacking this crisis.
Despite what state worshippers say, America’s civil society is ready to help out.
