The Select Committee will be hearing Hillary’s presentation tomorrow 27th (Thursday) from 10.10am in Select Committee Room 4, Parliament Buildings, Wellington.
Family First also has other families who are keen to share their harrowing experience of the law with the politicians.
Both Bob McCoskrie and Hillary Kieft will be available for interview.
Family First is calling for the law to be amended to allow for parental notification in all cases of medical advice, prescriptions and procedures unless it can be proved to a Family Court that it would place the child at extreme risk.
