Jacqueline Hemmingson

Praised Dame Margaret Sparrow

In a special feature in the May 2011 newsletter of the Abortion Law Reform Association of New Zealand entitled "Honouring Dame Margaret Sparrow", Jacqueline Hemmingson made the following statement honouring the former abortionist and president of ALRANZ:[1]

"As a long term supporter of women’s rights and right to reproductive choice, I know that Dame Margaret’s role and contribution in progressing the long, difficult and ongoing struggle for a fair and just law and services readily accessible to every woman has been enormous. Every young woman today would benefit from being aware of what life was like fifty years ago before abortion law reform and the debt they owe to both the giants and the minnows in the struggle for what they have today.Thank you Margaret"
