AUSA to vote on disaffiliating anti-abortion group
Tuesday, August 15, 2017
A member of Auckland University Students’ Association has put up a question as to whether anti-abortion and anti-euthanasia group ProLife Auckland should be disaffiliated from AUSA. The question also asks whether all groups with similiar ideology should be disallowed from seeking affiliation. A discussion is being held on the issue tomorrow, and a referendum is planned to take place next week.

We spoke to both AUSA President, Will Matthews, and the Co-president of ProLife Auckland, Jelena Middleton, about the situation.
