Abortion Advocacy Group Defames Pro-Life Health Professionals

DrStethoscope.jpgALRANZ is dishonest and hypocritical in setting up a website to list doctors who are known to oppose the killing of innocent unborn children and who are not prepared to prescribe contraception. The list while intended to shame doctors is in effect, a ‘roll of honour’ for our medical practitioners and will assist citizens who want a medical practitioner who is protective of women and is opposed to the killing of the unborn who are the weakest and most defenceless members of our human family.

Right to Life warmly commends those doctors who uphold the sanctity of life of every human being from conception to natural death. These doctors recognise that the murder of the unborn is not a health service and that the contraceptive pill is in fact  an abortifacient that has a tertiary action of destroying the human embryo before implantation.

Abortion Law Reform Association Releases ‘Defamatory Website’

Right to Life is concerned that ALRANZ (The Abortion Law Reform Association of New Zealand) is denigrating the good name and reputations of health professionals who believe that abortion is a harmful choice. They have just released a website entitled ‘My Decision’. The purpose of which is to ‘name and shame’ health practitioners who exercise their conscience rights to refuse to provide what ALRANZ calls ‘Reproductive Health-Care Services’. In other words, the website targets those doctors and practitioners who are not willing to refer a woman to an abortionist or to provide contraception.

Health practitioners can conscientiously object to the provision of such a request in accordance with S174 of the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003 and this was further clarified by a 2010 Court judgment. The only requirement of the health professional is to inform the person that to obtain that ‘service’ they can see another health practitioner.

As stated in the best practice guide of the New Zealand Health Professionals Alliance;

“Upon what universally accepted principle should individuals be forced to give up their own convictions and be made to act upon the contrary moral beliefs of an employer, union, professional association or state?”

Baby delivered as woman refused abortion under law

While it would appear that death is now almost a certainty for any unborn child born in Ireland, whose mother does not want to have it, (under Ireland’s new liberalised abortion legislation), that one fortunate child has managed to run the gauntlet, and escape the noose.

A 25 year old Irish woman has been refused an abortion under that country’s new laws and the baby has been delivered by Caesarean section after the woman went on a hunger strike.

Thank goodness that in this single case, we have seen legislation working to preserve the life of an unborn child rather than to kill it.

The woman wanted to abort her late second trimester unborn child, claiming she was suicidal.

Three psychiatrists hearing the case determined that the young women’s life was at risk because she was having suicidal thoughts. Thankfully the consultant obstetrician determined that the baby could be delivered as it was far enough along in the pregnancy. The baby is reported to be doing well.

Moody’s warns investors: Aging to reduce economic growth worldwide

The following post by Shannon Roberts is from MercatorNet’s  Demography is Destiny website and is cross-posted here. There are a number of factors that are impacting the rapid aging of the worlds population.  Abortion is undoubtedly the greatest.  Children are the world’s most precious resource and yet we are killing them by the millions.  Article starts……  

The Moody’s Global Credit Research Team, which regularly prepares reports for investors and finance firms, warned investors this month in a special report that ‘the unprecedented pace of aging’ will slow economic growth over the next 20 years worldwide. 

Aging reduces economic growth because it reduces labour supply, and causes saving rates to decline which reduces business investment.  It makes sense that over 65’s are spending their savings, rather than making further investments.

Abortion does not Criminalise Women. Why is the Public being led to believe that it does?

Media Release 12 August 2014

Advocates for the killing of unborn children falsely claim that the abortion laws criminalise women; they don’t.  The abortion laws in New Zealand are in the Crimes Act to both protect women and their unborn.

In the defence of women, Right to Life challenges those who claim to represent women but advocate for the anti-feminist decriminalisation of abortion. Their politically correct language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable.  They betray women by seeking to remove the legal protection afforded by the Crimes Act, for the health and welfare of women and the life of their precious unborn children.

The Crimes Act does not criminalise women, Section 185,  Female procuring her own miscarriage was repealed on 16 December 1977. Section 183 Procuring abortion by any means, provides for a person who unlawfully administers to or causes to be taken by her any drug or any noxious thing, or unlawfully uses on her any instrument to procure an abortion to be charged before the court.  A person found guilty of procuring an unlawful abortion may be sentenced to a term of imprisonment not exceeding 14 years.

I Support Pro-Life Doctor Chazan


Please sign this petition organised by Citizen Go

Support the world renowned Professor of Medicine, Dr. Bogdan Chazan, who was fired from his position as the Director of Holy Family Hospital in Warsaw, Poland for refusing to perform an abortion.

Dr. Chazan, a highly respected doctor, was fired for not performing an abortion. He claimed his freedom of conscience, but that argument was not (apparently) strong enough for the Mayor. 

Instead of offering abortion services, Dr. Chazan offered: medical advice for the mother, hospital care before, during and after the pregnancy, and perinatal hospice care for the child.

Dr. Chazan’s story published around the globe as a full-on assault on pro-life doctors.  Help us stand for the rights of pro-life doctors. Sign our petition to the Mayor of Warsaw in support of Dr. Chazan.

Are Human Embryo’s Just Another Commodity?

 

Professor Gareth Jones BSc [Hon] MBBs [Lond] DSC (W. Aust) Emeritus Professor from the University of Otago’s anatomy and bio-ethics department, writing in the New Zealand Medical Journal, claims that it is unethical and inconsistent for a society that accepts IVF to prohibit human embryo research on surplus human embryos. Right to Life strongly opposes the proposal of Professor Gareth Jones on the grounds that it is unethical and immoral.

The HART Storage Amendment Act requires that from 22 November 2014, any human embryos that have been stored for ten years are required to be destroyed and discarded, unless they have been granted an extension by ACART. There are believed to be 10,000 embryos affected that are currently frozen in liquid nitrogen and stored in the six IVF clinics in New Zealand.

In 2008, the Advisory Committee on Assisted Reproductive Technology [ACART}recommended to the government that approval be given for the so called “spare “ embryos frozen and stored in IVF Clinics to be used for research. This research would entail the destruction of these embryonic human beings. The Minister of Health, the Hon Tony Ryall, to his great credit, supported by intense lobbying from Right to Life and other pro-life organisations, rejected the recommendation of ACART, stating that there is no consensus.

Right Hon John Key,

Prime Minister,

Dear Mr Key

Thank you for your response of 30 July 2014, signed by A Watt, Executive Assistant, Correspondence Unit.

Why are the Churches Silent?

Babies are MURDERED down the street from your CHURCH. | Abolish Human Abortion | http://abolishhumanabortion.com/ | Church Repent | http://churchrepent.com/Media Release  31st July 2014     

In the nineteenth century most of the Churches were silent about slavery. In the twenty-first century most of the Churches are silent about abortion.

It can be said that every abortion facility in New Zealand is open with the permission of the local Churches. Why is it that the Churches in Tauranga are the exception? .

Every year in New Zealand more than fourteen thousand children are murdered in their mother’s wombs. Since the Contraception Sterilisation and Abortion Act was passed in 1977 (Legislation which was supposed  to provide legal protection for the right to life of unborn children), more that 436,000 innocent children have been murdered in abortions. The response from the majority of Churches has been a deafening silence. Why are the Churches accepting the murder of God’s precious infants as part of our culture?  Only the Catholic Church has spoken out in defence of the innocent. Since the first century, the Church has taught that the killing of the unborn is an intrinsic evil.  Why since the 1970’s has it been silent?

Churches have a duty to defend life in the public square and to constantly remind society – the community, the media and politicians- that we have a duty to protect human life from conception to natural death.

It is the duty of the Churches to preach the Gospel, a Gospel of life and love.

Every child is a unique and unrepeatable miracle of God’s creation. At the moment of conception every child is endowed by its Creator with inalienable human rights, the foundation right being the right to life. Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception. God alone is the Lord of life from its beginning until its end:. No one one can under any circumstance, claim for himself the right directly to destroy the life an innocent human being. That this should be happening every day to dozens children in our country is the greatest of evils.

Firing Health Professionals Who Refuse to Abort Babies Is Watershed Moment for Europe

By Roger Kiska of Alliance Defending Freedom. Reposted from the Zenit.org website

Dr. Bogdan Chazan, preeminent in his field and recognized throughout Poland for his medical expertise, was recently fined and fired from his position as director of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department at the Holy Family Hospital in Warsaw, Poland, for refusing to perform an abortion on a child diagnosed with potentially severe brain damage.

Chazan, also a professor at Warsaw University Medical School and a former national consultant in obstetrics and gynecology, is a devout Roman Catholic who believes that abortion is the intentional killing of an innocent human child. [Read more...]
