Discovering seven years ago that 12 pre-born children were being aborted each Thursday at her local hospital, led Kate Cormack to a crossroad.
Unable to eat or sleep, her mother asked her what she would do if the children being killed were newborns.
Kate’s answer: “I would be out there doing everything I can to make it stop.”
Despite battling a natural fear, she found herself outside her local abortion facility every Thursday with an outreach team offering information, help and hope.
Her weekly presence has afforded her the opportunity to speak with countless women, and men, listening to their abortion stories. They are stories of grief, pain, physical harm and coercion.
“As a woman” Cormack revealed, “I cannot be silent now I know these stories of my peers.”
“Women deserve far more. Women deserve the truth. Women deserve care and support. Women deserve better health care. Women deserve to be heard.”
As she concluded her speech for the National March for Life, Kate called for a better future for New Zealand.
“A future where all human life is valued from conception to natural death. A future where all pre-born are treated with dignity and respect. A future where both lives matter. A future where mothers will be empowered. A future where our government will protect the most vulnerable. A future where abortion will be considered unnecessary and unthinkable.”
