Right to Life applauds Metiria Turei, co-leader of the Green Party on announcing on 17th May, a generous Kids Kiwisaver scheme that would give to every newborn, a kick-start deposit of $1,000.
“Kids KiwiSaver is designed to complement our measures to address poverty directly by building wealth over the medium-to-long term, enabling all our children to make the best start in life possible when they reach adulthood,” said Mrs Turei.
This scheme will be a great financial start for children at birth to deliver a more secure future. This is in accordance with the Party’s laudable children’s policy which has among its aims “Creating a safe, nurturing, non-violent environment for children”, and “giving every child the best start in life”.
The best start in life for every child is to be allowed to be born.
Creating a safe, nurturing, non violent environment for the child commences in the womb. The best start in life for every child is to be allowed to be born. The ultimate in child poverty is to be deprived of your life before you are born. Last April, Jan Logie, the Green’s party Women’s Spokesperson, announced that the policy of the Green Party was to decriminalise the killing of the unborn by taking abortion out of the Crimes Act and making abortion a health issue. The killing of the unborn would then no longer be a crime and women could have an abortion for any reason. Abortion is not a health issue, it is a justice issue. The killing of the unborn is a crime against humanity. The majority of abortions are performed on potentially normal pregnancies for socio-economic reasons, masquerading as psychiatric. The proposed bill is an escalation of the war on woman and their precious unborn.
Right to Life believes that the Green Party sincerely wishes to do what is best for women and their children. However If the Green Party were really serious about “creating a safe, nurturing, non-violent environment for children”, they would reject the contentious proposal to decriminalise abortion. They would use their influence to provide increased legal protection for the right to life of the weakest and most defenceless members of our human family. They would also be seeking to provide women with the support and love that they need to choose life for their child. They would also promote adoption the loving option. Instead they push policies which de-humanise and bully the weakest and most defenceless members of the human race.
