Media Release 21st September 2015
The United Nations have declared the 21 September as the International Day of Peace.
Peace is the fruit of justice. Peace is inconceivable without justice. A culture of peace requires a culture of justice.
Mother Teresa of Calcutta said; “abortion has become the greatest destroyer of peace today because it destroys the life of the child but also destroys the conscience of the mother of course, and for years she knows that she has murdered her own child.”
World peace begins in the womb. Today society has declared war on the innocent and defenceless unborn. Each year more than 60 million children are killed before they are born. It is disappointing that the United Nations that was founded to promote world peace is at the forefront of promoting the killing of the unborn through the United Nations Population Fund, UNICEF and United Nations Committees.
We are living in an increasingly violent society with escalating rates of child abuse, domestic violence, assaults and murders. If we lose respect for the life of the unborn, should we be surprised if we also lose respect for those who are already born?
Each working day in New Zealand the equivalent of two classrooms of children are violently murdered in their mother’s womb.
It is a tragedy that the war on the unborn in New Zealand, is sanctioned and funded by the state who seek to disguise the violence by calling it an “essential health service” that has unlimited funding. Each day in New Zealand the equivalent of two classrooms of children are murdered before birth. There is a price to pay for the shedding of innocent blood and the violence inflicted on women’ that is an increasingly violent society.
It is the ardent desire of all of mankind that we can live in a culture of peace, the fruit of a culture of justice. Right to Life makes no apology for speaking up in defence of the unborn and their mothers and asks when is the government, the defender of the weak and the defenceless going to recognise that the first and only duty of government is to legislate to protect the lives of every person from the moment of conception to natural death?
