Media Release 13th September 2013
The Prime Minister, John Key rightly deplores the Syrian civil war and the recent chemical gas attack in Damascus where an estimated 1,429 civilians including 426 children were killed. He described the attack as “abhorrent and a disgrace”. The attack has been described by the American President as a crime against humanity.
It is inconsistent for the Prime Minister to denounce this crime against humanity, while at the same time giving approval for the use of weapons of mass destruction in chemical warfare in New Zealand in a bloody civil war against our own children. The Abortion Supervisory Committee reported to Parliament in 2012 that 984 pre-born children were killed in their mother’s womb with the lethal chemical Mifegyne RU 486. This chemical was approved for the killing of children by the Minister of Health Annette King, in August 2001. The Minister in her media release on 30 August 2001 stated that,
“Mifegyne RU486 meets the international standards of safety and effectiveness required for medicines”.
Mifegyne RU 486, is not a medicine and pregnancy is not a disease. The lethal drug is not safe for the unborn child, nor is it safe for women. It is however, as the Minister claims, highly effective in killing the unborn. Since its introduction, there have been nearly 10,000 unborn killed in New Zealand by this drug. This chemical war is also violence against women who are the second victims of this war.
Mifegyne acts by depriving the endometrium of a hormone that the human embryo requires to flourish and the embryo thus dies of starvation. This highly effective chemical warfare is approved and funded as a core health service by the government and is used in a number of Public Hospitals. The Family Planning Association is an ardent supporter of chemical warfare with Mifegyne and in April commenced killing unborn children at its Tauranga clinic. The Association is working to fulfil its objective of extending this chemical warfare to its other 29 clinics.
Right to Life asks when is the government going to stop this insane civil war against our own children? There will be no peace in New Zealand until this devastating war against our nation’s children in the womb is stopped.
