Right to Life Media Release Monday 30th April 2013
A New Zealand doctor has been suspended by the Health Practitioners Disciplinary Tribunal from practising medicine for 6 months after three of her patients were unlawfully prescribed the abortion drug misoprostol.
The doctor who unlawfully prescribed this dangerous drug has broken the law. The Crimes Act 1961, under section eight, Crimes Against the Person, has section 183, Procuring Abortion by any means. It reads, “Everyone is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 14 years who, with intent to procure the miscarriage of any woman or girl, whether she is pregnant or not,-[a]Unlawfully administers to or causes to be taken by her any poison or any drug …
These are serious crimes against the right to life of three defenceless unborn children. Right to Life questions the Tribunal as to why these serious crimes were not reported to the Police in order that charges could be brought to the High Court.
The doctor concerned has violated the Hippocratic tradition and the ethics of the medical profession which requires that doctors have the utmost respect for human life from the moment of conception. The three unborn children whose death she brought about were her patients and they deserved her respect and protection, tragically she failed them.
The following post on the dangers of the Abortion Pill RU 486 is from the Abortion Pill Risks website. Although this story is from the United States, Right to Life points out that a women taking the abortion pill RU 486 faces similar dangers here in NZ. In fact this is the drug that NZ Family Planning has just been given permission to begin using at its Tauranga Clinic. Family Planning want to create 30 new abortion clinics across the country. Tauranga is the first. Right to Life asks if New Zealand woman have been told the truth about this terrible drug and does NZ really want to step up the killing?
The following are some introductory extracts from this story.
“I feel that it is my obligation to tell my story for all the women out there that have been fooled that this so called “natural way of abortion” is in no way normal.”“As a matter of fact it was a freakish nightmare for me!”
On April 11, 2013, Isis, a 22-year-old college student from New York had an appointment with BWMC’s staff to obtain counseling and guidance, so she could make an informed health care decision, about terminating her early unplanned pregnancy.
After receiving her sonogram, it was determined that Isis was 5 weeks and 4 days pregnant and prescribed an alternative/off-label regimen of mifepristone and misoprostol which has not been evaluated or approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Isis received the mifepristone abortion pill (RU-486, Mifeprex) to take orally at the clinic. Mifepristone inhibits and blocks the essential reproductive hormone progesterone that plays a critical role for the initiation and maintenance of pregnancy.
Before leaving the clinic, she was briefly instructed to vaginally insert misoprostol that same evening, just before bedtime, to induce contractions to expel the embryo and placental tissues.
His speech was a ringing affirmation of the organization, its mission and its plans for the future. It was complete with his rhetorical sophistry. It ended with a profane ‘blessing’ of their work at the end.
The Scriptures tell us of a false god, a god of death, a god who particularly loved the blood of children. Read on to discover the true nature of the ‘god’ that Obama prayed to.

“This person suffering from hereditary defects costs the community 60,000 Reichsmark during his lifetime. Fellow German, that is your money, too.”
In a recent article, “Bioethics and the New Media”, two brash young bioethicists, Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva, attribute the adverse public reaction to their earlier paper defending infanticide for disabled children to the “misunderstanding” between their “specialist language”, the language of “academics, including bioethicists” and “everyday language”. Their earlier paper, published in the Journal of Medical Ethics, advocated parental choice to access ‘after birth abortion’ of children with disabilities.
Supporters of same-sex marriage ask its opponents, “How would same-sex marriage negatively affect your marriage?” Here are ten ways.
The following post is from the Aquila Report website, a Presbyterian/Reformed Family Church website. Reads…
Redefining marriage to include people of the same sex is a legal endorsement of the fungibility of a man and woman in marriage. To set “any two persons” on a par with a man and a woman in marriage is to reduce the worth of their roles. To draw an analogy, if a government declared the price of coal to be equivalent with the price of gold, would the cost of coal go up, or would the cost of gold come down?
Supporters of same-sex marriage often ask its opponents, “How would same-sex marriage negatively affect your marriage?” Here are just ten ways:
The New Zealand Family Planning Association has been granted a licence by the Abortion Supervisory Committee to kill unborn children at its Tauranga clinic. This is the first Family Planning clinic licenced to kill the unborn.The licence permits medical and surgical abortions up to twelve weeks. The Association is expected to use the French murder pill, Mifegyne RU 486 which is a lethal human pesticide which destroys the tiny human being by depriving the child of nourishment causing it to die of starvation.
Abortion is violence against vulnerable women and their precious unborn. Right to Life is opposed to the Association being granted a licence to inflict violence on vulnerable women and kill innocent and defenceless unborn children. Our Society questions why the Abortion Supervisory Committee would grant an abortion licence to such an organisation.
Family Planning is engaged in a national campaign to decriminalise abortion which would allow abortions on women for any reason or no reason up to the birth of the child. The citizens of Tauranga and the Bay of Plenty should rise up and make it known that the Association and its killing centre are not welcome in their community. Communities throughout New Zealand should now be alerted to the threat that Family Planning may in the near future be seeking to open an abortion clinic near you.
This video which features on Jill Staneck’s Prolife website, starts at the 3 minute mark.
In 2001, then IL state Sen. Barack Obama for the 2nd year in a row was the sole senator opposing Born Alive Infant bills state senate floor.
Audio of senate floor debates is destroyed when transcripts are written. Until now only the Chicago Tribune was known to have audio of this debate but has not released it.
But we now have it. In the audio Obama is arguing against calling for a 2nd physician if the 1st physician – the abortionist – has decided the baby s/he has just aborted alive is nonviable.
Most would recognize the potential for subjective opinion in this case. The abortionist is being paid to kill the baby predelivery, and a live birth would indicate s/he botched, for one thing.
For another, often these babies are being aborted because the abortionist has stated they are handicapped. A living baby could also be evidence the abortionist made a wrong diagnosis.
Barack Obama, a self-professed champion of the little guy and opponent of bullies, in this case argued in favor of trusting the abortionist. And the reasons are obvious. The abortion lobby in 2008 promised to spend $30 MILLION for their candidates as well as get out the vote.
In this audio Obama utters these infamous words among many:
“… if that fetus or child – however way you want to describe it – is now outside the mother’s womb….”
“… but there’s, let’s say, movement or some indication that, in fact, they’re not just coming out limp and dead….”
The following article is by Carolyn Moynihan on the ‘Conjugality ’ blog of the MercatorNet website. The post has attracted a large number of comments and reveals that it is far from being the popular move that is being touted by the gay friendly media. This legislation is not only hugely contentious, but the bullying methodology with which it has been rammed through parliament without adequate consultation and without a proper consideration of the consequences belies understanding. That the ‘rights’ and desires of a minor number of adults can trump the rights of our nations children simply shows the moral decrepitude of the majority of our MP’s. – Right to Life comment. How they voted.
Last night (April 17) 77 people changed the institution of marriage in New Zealand from a conjugal union with the potential for generating children and providing them with the nurture of their own mother and father into “a union of 2 people regardless of their sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity” with the potential for systematically depriving children of their mother or father, or both. All in the name of “love”. Starting in August.
Actually, just 17 people managed to do that, because the New Zealand Parliament currently has 121 members and if 17 of the 77 who finally voted for the “definition of marriage” bill had voted against it and with the 44 who opposed the move, this South Sea revolution could have been put down and time taken to properly discuss the whole idea. The notion put about by MPs and journalists that there has been a “fierce debate” on same-sex marriage over the past seven or eight months is sheer fantasy.
The passing of the Marriage [Definition of Marriage] Amendment bill marks a day of shame in the history of New Zealand. Parliament had a duty to defend marriage, to their lasting shame they failed to do so.
All authority comes from God, He has not given Parliament the authority to redefine marriage. In an astounding challenge to the authority of God, Parliament has assumed the right to seek to redefine the institution of marriage to include same sex couples.
God, the author of life, has, for the happiness of mankind and the procreation of the human race instituted marriage as being exclusively for one man and one woman. God has created man for woman and woman for man. Only a man can make a woman a wife and a mother and only a woman can make a man a husband and a father. Same sex marriage is not marriage, it will never be marriage, it is a cruel charade.
Mankind has always known these fundamental truths and no Act of Parliament can change the institution of marriage which God in His wisdom and love has bestowed on us.
“I think this is one of the areas (abortion) where we find great difficulty in Africa in understanding the Western culture which tells us the right to life is the supreme right, and yet then it introduces all kinds of exceptions which deny that very right to those who are the most defenceless and most in need of protection.” — Wilfrid Fox Napier, Cardinal Archbishop of Durban, South Africa
