Right to Life is disappointed that Dr Gill Greer, an international leader for a culture of death has been named as one of the 100 most inspiring people in the world for her service to women and girls. Right to life seriously questions the appropriateness of this honour. Dr Greer is the Director General of the International Planned Parenthood Federation [IPPF], an organisation of 148 affiliates that actively promote contraception, sterilisation and abortion in 170 countries. It is an enemy of women and our precious unborn.
Dr Greer was previously the Executive Director of the New Zealand Family Planning Association. She was awarded the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to Family Planning in 2005 by Helen Clarke’s Labour government.
The list award was made by Women Deliver to mark the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day [8th March]. The list included three other officers of IPPF. The list says these three ‘heroes’ have transformed IPPF into a “vital advocate for women’s human rights. It is not.
IPPF is racist and promotes eugenics. Planned Parenthood in the United States was founded by Margaret Sanger who sought to reduce the Negro population by promoting sterilisation and contraception. She believed that only the fit had a right to be born and promoted the steralisation of those she termed the feeble minded.
The IPPF claims to promote the human rights of women by advocating contraception and abortion as a human right and an integral part of reproductive health, they are not.
In 2009 IPPF affiliates killed 1,411,494 unborn children by abortion. It had an income of US $33 million.
IPPF does not provide a service to the international community; it is destructive to families, promotes a hedonistic and pagan view of human sexuality and sexual perversions. It seduces our youth by promoting promiscuity, and believes that the killing of unborn children is a legitimate part of reproductive health and necessary as a backup for so called failed contraceptives.
The IPPF supports abortion on demand, the decriminalisation of abortion, same sex marriage and is also supportive of China’s brutal one child policy, which includes forced abortions, infanticide and sterilisations.
The United States Congress recently passed a bill to defund Planned Parenthood, an affiliate of the International Planned Parenthood Association, because of alleged illegal sex trafficking activity. The Bill was unfortunately defeated in the Democratically controlled senate 55 to 44.
Dr Gill Greer is not an inspiring heroine, the true heroes are those men and women who are nobly working to uphold the inalienable right to life of every human being from conception, the sanctity of marriage and to promote God’s plan for procreation.
The New Zealand government should stop funding IPPF, the New Zealand Family Planning Association and the United Nations Population Fund.
