The Auckland University Students Association says it is not robbing an anti-abortion group of its right to free speech, by calling a meeting to consider banning it from campus.
The university club, ProLife Auckland, says the special general meeting scheduled for Wednesday was prompted by a single anonymous complaint about a pamphlet it had distributed.
It says it has not had a chance to defend itself.
But association administrative vice president Daniel Haines says it is only interested in facilitating a discussion as a neutral party.
He says everyone will have a chance to present their views at the special general meeting.
Mr Haines says the rules were tightened recently and it is harder to have a club banned on a whim.
ProLife Auckland says it passed out pamphlets on campus in May, prompting an anonymous e-mail complaint claiming they contained harmful misinformation.
President Amy Blowerssays a student association meeting then decided to hold a special general meeting to consider disaffiliating the club.
But she says she and her club were never contacted and only found out when a notification was posted on the association’s website.
