Pro-life lobby pressures National over doctor

first_imgNZ Herald 5 April 2014A fiercely anti-abortion lobby group is putting pressure on the National Party not to select an experienced doctor whose job has involved authorising and performing abortions.Right to Life said the potential selection of medical practitioner Rosemary Fenwicke as a candidate in Wellington Central “would have serious consequences for the National Party at the forthcoming election”.Dr Fenwicke has been a member of the Family Planning Association and has worked as a certified consultant and operating surgeon.She refused to confirm whether she was seeking the nomination for the Wellington Central seat and said Right to Life’s comments were “very premature”.National’s electorate chair Richard Westlake said nominations for the position were not yet closed and he could not comment.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11232489last_img read more
