Anti-choice groups are NOT welcome at University of Auckland is a Facebook group set up on 29 March 2010 to oppose the affiliation of Prolife Auckland with the University of Auckland Students' Association. It is an amusing irony that a group with the purported goal of protecting "choice" should be so vehemently opposed to the choice of others to express their opinions in the public square.

About

In its description, the group first makes the implication that Prolife Auckland is an "anti-choice" group. It then goes on to make the statement that all anti-choice groups spread mis-information and propaganda. It specifically accuses Prolife Auckland of being a "hate group", and states that Prolife Auckland has accused abortive women and abortionists of being murderers. These statements are all untrue and defamatory. The group's description follows:

"Anti-choice groups cause immense psychological harm to people who are already vulnerable. They spread mis-information and propaganda. They are a hate group who accuse people who have obtained abortions or have helped people obtain abortions as murderers. University should be a safe place. It will not be if they affiliate."[1]
