Family Planning Supports Culture of Death and War on Women

 0800abortion2 It is reasonable to assume that the New Zealand Family Planning Association supports the controversial 0800 abortion telephone service recently established by the abortionist Dr Simon Snook (Dr Death]. Right to Life asks when is the government going to cease funding this organisation that is doing so much harm to the community?

Is there any other area of medicine apart from abortion where a doctor will schedule surgery for a patient that he does not know, has not seen or examined and whose medical history he does not have?

Right to Life is opposed to the new 0800 telephone service that Dr Snook, 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 personally interview the woman. Right to Life believes that the only thing that will be offered for a woman who rings this number is death for her child.  Right to Life believes that Dr Snook has earned the title Dr Death.

New Zealand Abortions Drop to Their Lowest Level Since 1994 as More Babies Saved From Abortion

http://i1.wp.com/lifenews.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/ultrasound4d31.jpg?resize=387%2C201Right to Life is encouraged that the number of abortions in 2014 announced by Statistics NZ, reveals a  further  continuing reduction in the number of unborn children killed before birth.

There were 13,137 abortions in 2014. This is the lowest number of abortions since 1994 when there were 12,835.  Right to Life believes that there is  an increasing awareness that abortion is the murder of the innocent and violence against women. There is also an increasing awareness that abortion damages women’s health with an increased risk of breast cancer, drug and alcohol abuse, suicide, grief, anger, regret and increased depression.

Right to Life commends those brave and courageous women who when faced with an unplanned pregnancy chose life for their child. These are truly heroic women who deserve our admiration and support. Right to Life also commends the majority of the medical profession who faithful to the Declaration of Geneva, have sworn to maintain the greatest respect for human life.

When the Right to Die Becomes a Duty To Die

euthanasia doctorAdvocates of legislation to allow doctors to kill their patients, falsely claim; this is my life and I will choose how and when I die. This is a lie that must be constantly challenged. The reality is that it will be doctors not patients who will be deciding who shall live and who shall die. Why is our media failing in its duty to be a public watchdog? To their shame they are promoting a culture of death by constantly advocating, for death with dignity, medical assistance in dying, the right to choose, enticing and beguiling words that are intended to disguise the murder of the vulnerable by the strong.

Our life is not ours, to do with as we wish. Our life is a precious gift from the Creator and we are but stewards of our life. To destroy human life at any time from the moment of conception to natural death is an injustice most grave and  an offence to our Creator and a crime against humanity. The United Nations Declaration of Human Rights proudly proclaims that our right to life is inalienable, it may not be taken from us nor may we give it up. [Read more…]

Does the NZ Cancer Society Acknowledge Abortion Breast Cancer Link?

abc link Dr Jan Pearson,

National Health Promotions Officer,

New Zealand Cancer Society,

Dear Dr Pearson

Abortion Breast Cancer Link

I wish to draw your attention to a recent important study, Biochemical researchers at Georgia Regents University this month revealed research that linked abortion to higher increases in breast cancer among women.

According to the study, pregnant women produce high levels of the gene DNMT1 — responsible for maintaining breast, or mammary stem cells that enable breast’s rapid growth during pregnancy — which also produces stem cells that may cause breast cancer. The average woman will produce 300 times more of these mammary stem cells during pregnancy, becoming breast cells as they increase in size. This also happens during puberty.

Right to Life Commends National Government for Refusing Legislation to Allow Doctors to Kill Their Patients

Media Release  Monday 8th June

The Prime Minister, John Key has publicly stated that his government will not be introducing a bill that would allow doctors to kill their patients or assist in their suicide. He reaffirmed that this is a conscience issue. The only way that this contentious legislation will be debated in Parliament is by a private members bill.

Right to Life supports the members of the government caucus who have made this principled stand possible. The National government caucus fully realise that the majority of New Zealanders do not support legislation that would enable the strong to kill the weak.We have world class Hospices in New Zealand, funded by government and staffed by dedicated and compassionate doctors and nurses. providing quality care and pain control. In our Hospices patients die with dignity. We can live without euthanasia, we do not have to kill the patient to control the pain.

The first duty of the government is to legislate for the life and happiness of all its members and not to preside over their destruction. The decision of the Prime Minister is good news for all New Zealanders especially the most vulnerable, the elderly, the disabled and the seriously ill. We elect a government to protect the inalienable right to life of every member from conception to natural death.

Right to Life believes that this action of the government will result in increased electoral support. [Read more…]

High Court Judgment – Late Lecretia Seales

Right to Life welcomes the judgment of Justice David Collins in the case of the Declaratory Judgment sought by the late Lecretia Seales. Lecretia had petitioned the Court to give permission for her doctor to assist in her suicide without the fear of prosecution for violating the Crimes Act.

The judgment is good news for the whole community especially the most vulnerable, the elderly, the disabled and the seriously ill. The judgment has confirmed that the Crimes Act is not incompatible with the Bill of Rights and that only Parliament can change the law to allow the strong to kill the weak. The laws prohibiting assisted suicide and homicide are there to protect the vulnerable. We change them at our peril.

Here is the link to the judgment of Justice David Collins

The New York Times Throws in the Towel on “Overpopulation”

This article is a re-post from the Population Research Institute website and is by  Steven Mosher and Anne Morse  published June 2 2015. Reads…

My guess is that you, gentle reader, will be as astonished as we were by the top-of-the-website New York Times article discrediting the population alarmism of the past fifty years. In “The Unrealized Horrors of Population Explosion” the newspaper has finally (several decades too late) thrown population control on the ash heap of discredited ideas.

The article included a video interview with Paul Ehrlich, the author of The Population Bomb. He was the butterfly scientist from Stanford who scared tens of millions with the specter of overpopulation—and the population apocalypse that would supposedly result. He predicted that by the 1970’s the “population bomb” would explode—and hundreds of millions of people would starve to death in India and elsewhere. (India is still there, and doing quite well, thank you.)

But America’s “newspaper of record,” as it styles itself, failed to record the horrors themselves. It was woefully incomplete. There was no mention of the human costs when governments made population control a priority. No mention of the savage forced abortions and forced sterilizations that followed. No mention of the killing of baby girls through female infanticide and sex-selective abortion. No mention of the wasted money, the age and gender imbalances that continue to unfold and will take effect for years to come. No mention of how the overpopulation panic helped to fuel the rise of birth control use and abortion. [Read more…]

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.
