Media Release 13th July 2016
The CEO of Family Planning, Jacki Edmond, recently claimed in an opinion article in the Dompost that; “today in New Zealand, there is unwarranted stigma and legal barriers surrounding a procedure accessed by about one out of four women.”
This is an appalling statement. it is time for our community to stand up and oppose the culture of death that this anti-life organisation is promoting. What is the stigma that Family Planning is desperately trying to eliminate? The stigma includes the guilt, shame, grief and regret that is associated with the violent killing of the innocent and defenceless unborn child. Family Planning rightly recognises this stigma as a serious impediment to having the murder of the unborn, accepted as a normal part of our health services. Family Planning denies the humanity of the unborn and the sanctity of life of every human being from the moment of conception.
Jacki Edmund is concerned that there are still those who have qualms about the killing of unborn children. She believes that there is unwarranted stigma associated with the killing of unborn children and that such stigma which discourages women from such killing has no place in today’s society. Right to Life believes that her attitude is callous and evil Every women’s conscience tells her that the killing of her unborn child is wrong and that encouraging women to believe otherwise is the cause of much future grief and heartache for many New Zealand women. That Family Planning is endeavouring to seduce women into believing that there is no such stigma is a mark of the degree to which we as a society, now call good evil and evil good.
