Just a quickie post with a couple of items of news in the holiday season.

1. Voice for Life Bay of Plenty lost its appeal to the Advertising Standards Authority. VfL had appealed an October decision by the ASA that upheld a complaint by ALRANZ over full-page ads that ran in local BOP papers. Here are some links for background:

(i). to a summary of the latest ruling dismissing VfL’s appeal

(ii). to our media release in October in response to the initial successful complaint

(iii). to the original decision in October by the ASA upholding our complaint

2. The Abortion Supervisory Committee’s annual report was tabled in Parliament on 13 December and you can download a copy (PDF) by clicking here. The commentary makes for some interesting reading.

To all our supporters, a happy holiday season and 2014! Be safe! Enjoy!
