Media Release 11 November 2013
A small pro-abortion group is delighted that its complaint against full page adverts placed in the Bay News and Bay of Plenty Times have been upheld by the Advertising Standards Authority [ASA]. They accused the advertiser of lying. The adverts were placed by Voice for Life in Tauranga. The adverts followed the introduction of the killing of children in their first nine weeks of life at The Family Planning’s clinic in Tauranga in April this year. The adverts were a community service and provided information about the tragic deaths of women overseas and the serious complications resulting from abortions with RU 486.
The adverts also named the forty ministers and priests in the Tauranga area who would provide unconditional love and support to women with an unplanned pregnancy. The Advertising Standards Authority has accepted the complaint that the advert contained ‘lies’. The Authority also accepted that the advertisements were prepared in “a socially irresponsible manner” as it “grossly”misrepresented medical facts about the risks and effects of abortion. The complainant also said the advertisement employed fear in order to deter women from undergoing an abortion with RU 486. The accusations are simply not true.

The following article was written by Donna J. Harrison the Executive Director of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists AAPOG.
About a month ago, the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology published a case report on another death from medical abortion. Of course this death, as most of the others, was ignored by the international press.
“Currently most of the adverse events for medical abortion come from Danco, the company who makes mifepristone. It is extremely unlikely that FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) is getting the entire story from the fox who is watching the hen-house.”
One blogger, however has published an excellent summary of the case as well as a historical review of other cases of death from C. sordellii. His excellent summary is found here Click here for video on Abortion Pill Risks (medical abortion)
His conclusions (shown below) are worth serious consideration:

Complaint – Cecile Richards, Planned Parenthood America
I wish to lodge a formal complaint against the interview of Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. The interview was aired at 8 am on Saturday 2 November 2013 on the Saturday Morning programme. My complaint is that the interview breached Principle [d] of the Code of Practice for free to air radio. The principle that when controversial issues of public importance are discussed, reasonable efforts are made or reasonable opportunities are given, to present significant points of view, either in the same programme or in other programmes within the period of current interest.

The Labour Party has not adopted the following policy presented at its Conference in Christchurch. The Party Conference instead recommended that the proposal to decriminalise abortion be referred, on becoming the government, to the Law Commission for an opinion. David Cunliffe has recently publicly stated that he supports the decriminalisation of abortion, and also supports the Law Commission being asked to provide an opinion.
This was the ploy used by the Labour government in Victoria in 2008 and it is now going to be tried on here in New Zealand. It is clear that the Labour Party supports the decriminalisation of abortion but knows full well that many of it’s supporters do not. So in view of the coming general election in 2014 Labour realises that it is politically expedient to side step this controversial justice issue until after the election. This is nothing more than a cynical attempt to deceive the electorate as to the true intentions of the Labour Party. The electorate will not be deceived.
Here is the policy, which is being driven by Young Labour.
1.That Labour is committed to women’s health and well-being, and strongly endorses a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her body. Therefore, Labour in Government will:
a) Adopt measures to ensure that a pregnant woman has the opportunity and freedom to make the best decision for her own circumstances;
b) Decriminalise abortion;
c) Ensure that access to abortion is available to women throughout the country
Decriminalisation promotes violence against women and their unborn and reveals the Labour Party as being hypocritical.
The Labour Party is opposed to child abuse yet it is promoting abortion which is the ultimate in child abuse.

The European Parliament has this week rejected a resolution to adopt the “Estrela Report” drafted by the International Planned Parenthood Federation in Brussels. The report called for abortion to be declared a human right and demanded that all European Union countries legalise abortion. The report demanded that doctors and nurses be obligated to participate in abortions. The resolution called for the mandatory “re-education of doctors and medical students to force them to promote contraception and abortion.”The report also called for mandatory comprehensive sex education in primary schools.
The New Zealand Family Planning Association [NZFPA], is a very loyal affiliate of the IPPF. Dr Gillian Greer of the New Zealand NZ FPA was the previous Director General of the IPPF. The NZFPA supports this resolution which intensifies the war against women. We must be prepared for the NZFPA to pursue this agenda here. Family Planning claim to represent the best interests of women. This resolution is further proof that they don’t. New Zealand should be warned of the agenda of Family Planning and the plans that they have for our families.
Family Planning should be seen as a serious threat to our children and to the family. Family Planning continue to seduce our children and undermine parental responsibility. The Association is the biggest abortion referral agency in New Zealand. They have obtained a licence to kill unborn children at its Tauranga clinic. It is their objective to turn all their 30 clinics in New Zealand into abortion clinics for the killing of defenceless and helpless unborn children. The Association supports girls under the age of 16 having an abortion without the parent’s knowledge or consent. The Association regularly smuggles girls out of school to have an abortion without the knowledge of parents.

Media Release 28th October 2013
October is breast cancer awareness month. It is a human tragedy that each year 650 women die in New Zealand from breast cancer. Every year 2800 women are diagnosed with breast cancer. Ninety five per cent of women contracting breast cancer are over the age of forty. It has been known since 1957 in a Japanese study that women who had an abortion increased the risk of the cancer three fold. There are many studies that have been conducted worldwide that provide irrefutable proof of the link between abortion and breast cancer. Abortions are promoted as being “safe”for women; they are not. It is politically incorrect to admit that abortion hurts women. The fact that ideology now trumps science means women are not been warned of the abortion-breast cancer link. They should be.
Dr Joel Brind, PhD, internationally renowned researcher in 1996, completed a mega-analysis of twenty three international studies and found that eighteen studies disclosed a link between abortion and breast cancer. Recent studies have been completed in Sri Lanka, China, India, Iran and Turkey which revealed a substantial increase in breast cancer following an abortion. There has been a 40 per cent increase in breast cancer in China since the introduction of its one child family policy with forced abortions in 1979. Women under the age of eighteen who have a abortion double their risk of breast cancer. Multiple abortions also result in an increasing risk of breast cancer. There have been no studies on the link between abortion and breast cancer conducted in New Zealand.

The Canterbury District Health Board [CDHB] is correct in rejecting the proposal of Pharmac to allow pharmacists to dish out the so called emergency contraceptive pill [ECP], free to any women under the age of 25. The CDHB believe that the proposal “would not drop unplanned pregnancy rates.”
The Autonomous Subsidy and Provision of Pharmaceuticals (ASAP) is considered a high priority by Pharmac and will grant pharmacies the right to prescribe, dispense and claim back the price of ECP.
The CDHB are correct in their conclusion, that there is no demonstrable benefit. A pilot scheme commencing in 2008 was tried in the Waikato. There has been no evaluation of the outcome of this trial. The Auckland DHB announced that in 2010 after reviewing its 12 month pilot scheme, it would stop funding the program as there was no significant reduction in unplanned pregnancies and abortions. The ECP also does not prevent contracting sexually transmitted diseases.
The failure of the ECP to reduce unplanned pregnancies and abortions has been substantiated by 23 studies in 10 countries conducted between 1998 and 2006 that were reported in Obstetrics and Gynecology 109 .
It is acknowledged by the Ministry of Health that the ECPO also acts as an abortifacient by changing the lining of the uterus preventing the implantation of the human embryo. This is a chemical abortion that destroys a living human being. The ECP inflicts violence on a woman’s reproductive faculties. This is another weapon in the war against women. Why does the New Zealand Family Planning Association website deny this truth? Women have a right to know to give an informed consent before taking this lethal drug.
The taxpayer has a right to ask Pharmac where is their statistical evidence to demonstrate that the ASAP programme significantly reduces unplanned pregnancies and abortions. Why should the taxpayer be required to fund fornication and promiscuity? The most effective way of reducing unplanned pregnancies and abortions is by teaching our children abstinence before marriage and faithfulness within marriage.
The ECP has been classified as carcinogenic by the WHO and Right to Life questions why this drug is being made widely available to New Zealand women when this is a known fact. What will the long term consequences of this questionable practice going to be for the long term health of our women?
Right to Life,
The following article is originally by Michael Cooke, editor of the MercatorNet website and was first published on 16th October 2013.
This op-ed appeared in today’s issue of The Mercury, the main newspaper in Hobart, Tasmania, where members of Parliament are gearing up for a debate on euthanasia. It was a companion piece to an article in favour of legalisation by Emeritus Professor Colin Wendell-Smith, convenor of Doctors for Dying with Dignity and co-convenor of Doctors for Voluntary Euthanasia.
As Tasmanian MPs ponder legalising voluntary euthanasia as a remedy for unbearable suffering, they should take a close look at the situation in Belgium, where it has been legal since 2002.
For starters, at this very moment their colleagues in Brussels are pondering whether to legalise euthanasia for children. Are Belgian five-year-olds really capable of voluntarily choosing to die?
The Belgian MPs are also studying whether to authorise euthanasia for patients with dementia who have written advance directives, even if they appear to be cheerful and content with their impaired life. Is that really voluntary?
The history of euthanasia in Belgium is one of unremitting bracket creep. What began with euthanasia only for constant, unbearable, untreatable suffering and only for consenting adults keeps expanding and expanding with consequences which no one foresaw. Here are a few of them…

Right to Life believes that it was reprehensible and a deadly threat to the common good for the Wellington coroner Ian Smith to request that Parliament again consider legislation to allow for euthanasia. That is, to allow doctors to kill their patients or assist in their suicide. It is of great concern that a Coroner should be advocating a culture of death with the murder of the vulnerable.
This request followed an inquest into the suicide of a Mrs Gluyas an 85 year old women who committed suicide in Wellington in August 2011. She lived alone and suffered from arthritis. Her tragic death highlights the loneliness of many elderly people.
The role of the Coroner is to establish when, where, how and why a death happened, and also to work out whether anything can be done differently that might prevent similar deaths in the future. If so, they make recommendations. A coroner speaks for the dead to protect the living.
A coroner has a statutory duty to ensure that the deceased is not a victim of a crime.
