The Abortion Law Reform Association in an open letter to abortionists, admires the bravery of abortionists for providing abortion services, “frequently done at a cost to your own safety and wellbeing, We honour your bravery; bearing the brunt of anti-choice bullying, threats and spurious attempts to make clinic/ medical providers into villains.” “You are the unsung heroes of the medical profession.”
In the Machiavellian world of ALRANZ evil becomes virtue and virtue becomes evil. Pregnancy is not a disease and the killing of the unborn is not a health service. There is nothing heroic or brave for a doctor to exercise his medical skills to invade with deadly murderous intent, the mother’s womb, the sanctuary of the child, where the child terrified at the intrusion, heart racing in terror and mouth open in a silent scream frantically tries to avoid the curette which seeks to tear the limbs of the child from its body.
It is ironic that ALRANZ condemns defenders of life praying outside abortion clinics for the conversion of abortionists and the welfare of mothers and their unborn as bullying and threatening to abortionists. This is a distraction from the real violence perpetrated against vulnerable women and their unborn inside the clinic.
Right to Life believes that these doctors are motivated by true concern for the health and welfare of a woman facing an unplanned pregnancy; they are however sadly mistaken in believing that they can solve a woman’s problem by killing their children. They are not the “unsung heroes” of the medical profession but have sadly become serial killers and a disgrace to the medical profession.

Right to Life wholeheartedly congratulates the Accident Compensation Corporation [ACC] for recognising the urgent need for promoting abstinence based sexuality education for our children. The arrival of the ACC hopefully signals the departure of the ubiquitous Family Planning Association with its unhealthy destructive plans for our children and families. Right to Life looks forward to the introduction of the pilot programme, “healthy relationship” designed to reduce sexual violence.
The ACC recognises that comprehensive sex education programmes produced by the Family Planning Association [FPA] are seducing our children into being promiscuous and even sexually violent. The programmes are not only damaging the morality of our children but are also costing the country millions. Last year the ACC dealt with 4,800 sexual violence claims and spent $44 million treating the victims. The sexual freedom promoted by the NZFPA comes at a great cost, for our children, teenagers and for the taxpayer.
It should be recognised that Family Planning is a business and its business is selling sex.

One of the world’s best known religious leaders has came out in favour of same-sex marriage. But what does he really think?
Widely reported as having recently “thrown his moral weight behind gay marriage”, the Dalai Lama’s actual words to talk show host Larry King were not quite so compelling. He described sexual morality for the non-religious as a “personal matter”, but noted that same-sex marriage was “up to the country’s law”. When pressed further on his personal opinion, he replied “That’s okay. I think individual business”.
Westerners have confused and contradictory impressions of Eastern religions and philosophies. On the one hand, fantasies of the mysterious and enigmatic Orient are nothing new: Omar Khayyam was as popular in Victorian England as Jalalladin Rumi is in America today. Nor need we watch Madam Butterfly to understand how Asia has continued to serve as a canvas for weird Western dreams, projections, and insecurities.
Some compassion for the Dalai Lama is duly warranted. The poor guy is, at face value, a perfect vehicle for the Western ideal of a tremendously wise, compassionate, yet safely foreign master – the nearest living equivalent to Yoda from Star Wars. But at the same time he’s the serious head of a serious sect of Buddhism, the spiritual leader of a dispossessed people, and a living manifestation of Avalokite?vara, the bodhisattva of compassion, roles he must somehow balance against the neediness of Westerners anxious to find a convincing spiritual counterpoint to the stifling moral authority of their own religious heritage.

This article is by the influential American apologist Dr. R. Albert Mohler Jr., and is a treasure for fathers to pass on to their children.
The astounding popularity of J.R.R. Tolkien and his writings–magnified many times over by the success of the “Lord of the Rings” films–has ensured that Tolkien’s fantasy world of moral meaning stands as one of the great literary achievements of our times.
In some sense, Tolkien was a man born out of time. A philologist at heart, Tolkien was most at home in the world of ancient ages, even as he witnessed the barbarism and horrors of the 20th century. Celebrated as a popular author, he was an eloquent witness to permanent truths. His popularity on university campuses, extending from his own day right up to the present, is a powerful indication of the fact that Tolkien’s writings reach the hearts of the young, and those looking for answers.
Even as Tolkien is celebrated as an author and literary figure, some of his most important messages were communicated by means of letters, and some of the most important letters were written to his sons.

Media Release 6th March 2014
The New Zealand Family Planning Association[FPA] in its submission to the United Nations Human Rights Council had the breath-taking audacity to accuse the New Zealand government of violating the human rights of women and girls living in New Zealand. The UN Council was meeting in February to review the performance of the government in its upholding human rights. Right to Life believes that the FPA is itself guilty of supporting serious human rights violations.
The UN accusations are very serious ones; they are an affront to our nation. The main accusation is that the government has not decriminalised abortion to allow for abortion on demand for the whole of pregnancy, for any reason, or no reason. The FPA claims to represent the women of New Zealand at the United Nations and to be the champion of the human rights of women. How dare they, this is challenged; the ideology of the FPA is alien to that held by the fast majority of New Zealand women.
Who then has appointed the FPA to fill this role? Nobody, they have appointed themselves. FPA is a business; its business is selling sex, and its objective is to encourage as many people as possible to be sexually active. Its marketing strategy is to seduce our children and to increase its client base by infiltrating schools with comprehensive sex education programmes that threaten the morals and health of our children. Family Planning claim that they promote choice; this is a charade, for they are opposed to schools consulting with parents to seek approval for the use of sex education programmes in school. They are also opposed to parents having the right to withdraw their children from these offensive programmes. The FPA does not accept that parents are the first educators of their children, for the FPA believes that they are.

Some big questions have demonstrably true answers. But when they don’t fit powerful narratives, some powerful people are making the questions irrelevant.
Or coming up with pragmatic answers, you know, whatever works at the moment to dodge the truth.
As the Planned Parenthood president just did this week, saying that when life begins is not really relevant to the abortion debate.
“It is not something that I feel is really part of this conversation,” Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood told Fusion’s Jorge Ramos on Thursday. “I don’t know if it’s really relevant to the conversation.”
When pressed, Richards said that in her view life began for her three children when she delivered them.
She explained that the purpose of her organization is not to answer a question that “will be debated through the centuries,” but to provide options for pregnant women.
People who choose to deny the facts may find them debatable or beyond their ability to debate, or just reduce them to an incoherent diversion.
But it is not debatable when life begins. It is scientific fact.

Group Manager Strategy and Standards,
Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners,
Dear Ms McKeogh,
Maryan Street’s End of Life Choices Bill
Thank you for your reply of 30 October 2014. Thank you for clarifying your College’s position on euthanasia and for giving consideration to our request that your members write to the Hon David Cunliffe concerning Maryan Street’s Bill.
We are encouraged to write to you again following the decision made by the Royal College of General Practitioners in the United Kingdom, reaffirming the College’s opposition to euthanasia i.e. doctors being permitted to kill their patients or assisting in their suicide. Dr Clare Gerada, Chairperson of the Royal College stated that this was the widest consultation ever taken by the College; there were 1,700 responses from doctors with 77 per cent being opposed to any change to their position which is to oppose euthanasia.
Right to Life wishes to request that your College give serious consideration to following the example of the Royal College by adopting a strong stance against euthanasia. It is imperative for the future of the medical profession that it upholds and protects the ethics of the profession founded on respect for the sanctity of life of every human person from conception to natural death.

Abortion Supervisory Committee,
Private Bag 32001,
Dear Ms Williams
Abortion Breast Cancer Link
Thank you for your letter of 17 February 2014. Right to Life is disappointed that your Committee refuses to accept the finding of the recent meta-analysis of 36 studies that have been published.
In China in 2012. The studies had revealed that there was a 44 per cent increased risk of a woman developing breast cancer after one abortion. This risk increased with the number of abortions that a woman had. There is an epidemic of breast cancer in China following the introduction of China’s one child policy.
We are aware that studies that reveal a link between abortion and breast cancer are dismissed by organisations that promote the abortion industry. In the United States there are seven States that have passed legislation making it mandatory that women seeking an abortion are informed of the link between abortion and breast cancer. Planned Parenthood has gone to court in an endeavour to prevent this information being given to women.

Hon Tony Ryall,
Minister of Health,
Dear Mr Ryall
Family Planning Sexuality Education Booklet Q & A
I am writing to you to express the concerns that our Society has with the contents of the booklet used in primary schools for year 6, 10 year olds. The booklet has been funded by your department and produced by the New Zealand Family Planning Association. We request that in the interest of the children of New Zealand that this booklet be immediately withdrawn and replaced with a booklet that is approved by parents, the first educators of our children.
We consider that the booklet misrepresents our sexuality and fails to acknowledge that there are other factors that influence the development of the child. We believe these include the religious beliefs, cultural influences and the value system of the individual family. The booklet completely separates sexual intercourse from love, commitment and childbearing. It teaches that sex is for fun and that it is up to each child to decide when they are ready to have sexual intercourse. It does not promote true respect for one’s own body or that of the opposite sex. Continue reading Minister Asked to Withdraw Harmful ‘Sex Education’ Booklet for Early Primary School Children
Media Release 18th February 2014
The Belgium Parliament has passed a highly controversial law allowing for the killing of children and patients with Dementia and Alzheimer’s. The Bill was passed on Friday 14 February by 86 to 44 with 12 abstentions. Belgium now becomes the first country to allow for sick children to be killed. Public opinion polls revealed that the Bill had the support of 75 per cent of the population of Belgium. Doctors are now permitted to kill their child patients if the child is in unbearable pain, is in a terminal condition, has requested it repeatedly, has parental consent, has been seen by a psychiatrist and a psychologist and the killing is approved by the patients doctor. Doctors kill their patients with a lethal injection.
A palliative care nurse, who had cared for 200 dying children, gave evidence that she had never had a child ask for their life to be terminated.
The Bill had the support of the Greens, the Socialists and was opposed by the Christian Democrats. Those who promoted the law said that this now legalises what is already being done. Dr Philippe Mahoux author of the 2002 Euthanasia legislation “Right to Die” in support of it said that the bill was “the ultimate gesture of humanity” and removed the discrimination against a “child’s right to die”.
