Dame Margaret Sparrow on RNZ National just after 10am

One of the founders of ALRANZ, standing down as president after many years, and she's written a new book (Abortion: Then & Now).  It's been one of the highlights of my year so far to meet and talk to Dame Margaret Sparrow last month, and hear of her strong commitment to changing our abortion laws and services, and her principled stance on the right of the pregnant person to choose.

Listen in if you can, once it's done I'll add a link to the audio file in here. And now that it's available online, you can listen to it by clicking here.  If that doesn't work then check out the Nine to Noon page for today.

RNZ National (formerly known as National Radio) is generally to be found at around 101 FM on the dial (e.g. 101.4 in Auckland). 

Comment direction:  Not a post about the morality of abortion.  We have a whole entire Abortion & Morality page for that, so go there instead please if that's what you want to comment on.

Good interview! Wrote to thank NinetoNoon ninetonoon[at]radionz.co.nz -- among other things, talking about abortion helps end the stigma. Just one plug: margaret didn't get a chance to promote her up-coming 'book tour'...but you can read all about it at spiffy re-vamped alranz site: www.alranz.org

She is an amazing woman and I was delighted to catch her interview this morning.
