Dr Simon Snook’s – 0800 Kill Your Unborn Child

snookRight to Life emphatically opposes the new 0800 telephone “service”  that Dr Simon  Snook an abortionist, has established to enable women considering an abortion to have the killing of their child authorised over the phone without the need for a doctor to interview the woman.

Right to Life Patron, Dr Norman Maclean, MNZM, a distinguished retired Obstetrician and Gynaecologist of Invercargill, is appalled at this development. He describes it as unprofessional, unethical, shameful and a gross trivialising of a very serious legal process.

Right to Life asks how can a doctor claim to diagnose serious mental ill health issues in a woman he has never met, whom he does not know, whose medical history he does not have, whom he cannot examine and whom he may never see again. How can a doctor with a modicum of conscience sign a certificate authorising the killing of an innocent and defenceless child on the basis of a brief telephone conversation? Who will protect women and their precious unborn from this cruel charade?

Simon Snook has been the subject of a number of Right to Life Media releases over the last few years. These releases can be viewed at the bottom of this post.

Right to Life believes that it is reasonable to assume that the Abortion Supervisory Committee that presides over the abortion industry in New Zealand is aware of this development and has given approval for its establishment.  if this is so then Parliament should seriously consider replacing the Committee.

Family Planning Wars Against New Zealand Parents

chester borrows Right to Life commends the Hon. Chester Borrows for presenting a petition to Parliament on behalf of a distressed mother whose 15 year old daughter attempted suicide a year after she was smuggled out of school for a Family Planning organised secret abortion.

It is time for Parliament to amend the Care of Children Act 2004, to uphold the right of families to care for their children by ensuring that parents are advised before an abortion on their under 16 year old daughter.

Parental Notification is not an Abortion Issue but a Family Rights Issue –The Denial of Parental Notification is child Abuse.

Government’s Increased Funding for Palliative Care Applauded by Right to Life

The government has given a firm indication that it is committed to promoting a culture of life. In committing to providing quality compassionate palliative care for our most vulnerable members when they are suffering a terminal illness,  Right to Life believes the government is moving in the right direction. This is care that recognises the dignity and the inalienable right to life of every human being. It is also affirming the role of the medical profession as carers and not killers. We don’t need to kill the patient to kill the pain.

The community should be grateful to the government for its support of palliative care in New Zealand. The government has provided for $60 million to be spent on Hospices over the next four years. A further $13 million will go towards helping hospices expand their care services for terminally ill people at home and in rest homes. There is also money to recruit 60 new nurse specialists and other palliative care experts.

Green Party’s Incoherent Child Policy

Right to Life applauds Metiria Turei, co-leader of the Green Party on announcing on 17th May, a generous  Kids Kiwisaver scheme that would give to every newborn, a kick-start deposit of $1,000.

“Kids KiwiSaver is designed to complement our measures to address poverty directly by building wealth over the medium-to-long term, enabling all our children to make the best start in life possible when they reach adulthood,” said Mrs Turei.

This scheme will be a great financial start for children at birth to deliver a more secure future. This is in accordance with the Party’s laudable children’s policy which has among its aims “Creating a safe, nurturing, non-violent environment for children”, and “giving every child the best start in life”.

The best start in life for every child is to be allowed to be born.

Video: 9 Months in the Womb in 4 Incredible Minutes

This video links to the Aletela.org website

Foetal development is an astounding process. The development of human life in the womb is truly astonishing and this video capture the miraculous nature of it. A great deal about us — such as our height, eye colour, skin tone, etc. — is determined at the moment of fertilization. The daily, weekly, and monthly development of the zygote, embryo, and foetus is demonstrated here, right up until the moment of birth. It’s a good reminder of why we must proclaim the right to life for every human being from the first moment of existence.

Euthanasia’s Cancerous Corruption of Medical Morality

This post is a re post of a post on the FirstThings.com website on 15th May 2015 and written by Wesley J. Smith

During World War II, German doctors euthanized disabled babies and adults. As Robert Jay Lifton reported in The Nazi Doctors: Medical Killing and the Psychology of Genocide, no one forced these doctors to kill. Many of them believed euthanasia to be a “healing treatment” that ended “unlivable” lives, liberated families from the burden of caregiving, and kept the country from “wasting” scarce resources on the lebensunwertes leben (“life unworthy of life”). Such was the fruit of years of utilitarian indoctrination and the resulting societal acceptance of eugenics ideology.

At the time, Netherlander doctors were well aware that German medical ethics had devolved. Thus, when the German commander of the occupation, Arthur Seyss-Inquart (now known as “the Butcher of Holland”), commanded that Dutch medical practices adjust to the German way, Netherlander doctors courageously defied the order.

What Every Woman Has a Right To Know – The Abortion Breast Cancer Link

Every woman has the right to know that having an abortion increases the risk of her developing and dying from breast cancer.

Doctors who fail to warn women seeking an abortion that they increase the risk of developing breast cancer leave themselves open to being sued by women for failing to warn them of the increased risk of breast cancer.

A recent study has confirmed that if a woman terminates the life of her child in the womb, she increases the risk of developing breast cancer. The research was conducted by Biochemical researchers at Georgia Regents University, in Augusta Georgia. Their research found that the gene DNM1 which is essential to maintaining breast cells that enable normal rapid growth of the breasts during pregnancy, also produces stem cells that may enable breast cancer to develop. If the pregnancy is aborted, it abruptly halts the development of cells for the production of milk cells, thus making the cells susceptible to cancer. The study also indicates that delaying a first pregnancy until after the age of 30 also raises a woman’s risk of contracting breast cancer.

It is a human tragedy that each year 650 women die in New Zealand from breast cancer and that every year 2800 women are diagnosed with it. Ninety five per cent of women contracting breast cancer are over the age of forty. According to the American Coalition On Abortion Breast Cancer, one woman in 100 woman having an abortion is expected to die as a result of abortion induced breast cancer. That means that 140 women in New Zealand will die each year as a result of abortion induced breast cancer.

The Evil Actions of Barack Obama

Featured ImageThis post is a re-post from LifeSiteNews.com

WASHINGTON, D.C., May 13, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A bill that would ban abortions after 20-weeks to prevent late-term babies from feeling the searing pain of abortion is “disgraceful,” President Obama’s official spokesman said today.

The remarks from Josh Earnest, White House press secretary, came as the House stood poised to pass the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. The bill would create a national prohibition on most abortions after 20 weeks gestation, a point at which experts have testified babies have the ability to feel pain. [Read more…]

Justice Demands a Referendum to Recognise Right to Life of Our Unborn Children

Right to Life believes that the government’s imposition of a referendum on the people of New Zealand to change our nation’s flag is a distraction from the real justice issue that the government continues to ignore. The first duty of the  government is to protect the lives of every member of the community. That it refuses to do this in an indictment on its ability to govern.

Right to Life urges the government to have a binding referendum, the question being “do you recognise the child before birth being a human being endowed by its Creator with human rights, the foundation right being an inalienable right to life?”

A nation that focuses on the need for a new flag while not only refusing to acknowledge the injustice being perpetrated against our unborn but actually aiding and abetting that injustice is one that is sowing the seeds of its own demise. [Read more…]
