Media Release 26th March 2014
The Abortion Law Reform Association in an open letter to abortionists, admires the bravery of abortionists for providing abortion services, “frequently done at a cost to your own safety and wellbeing, We honour your bravery; bearing the brunt of anti-choice bullying, threats and spurious attempts to make clinic/ medical providers into villains.” “You are the unsung heroes of the medical profession.”
In the Machiavellian world of ALRANZ evil becomes virtue and virtue becomes evil. Pregnancy is not a disease and the killing of the unborn is not a health service. There is nothing heroic or brave for a doctor to exercise his medical skills to invade with deadly murderous intent, the mother’s womb, the sanctuary of the child, where the child terrified at the intrusion, heart racing in terror and mouth open in a silent scream frantically tries to avoid the curette which seeks to tear the limbs of the child from its body.
It is ironic that ALRANZ condemns defenders of life praying outside abortion clinics for the conversion of abortionists and the welfare of mothers and their unborn as bullying and threatening to abortionists. This is a distraction from the real violence perpetrated against vulnerable women and their unborn inside the clinic.
Right to Life believes that these doctors are motivated by true concern for the health and welfare of a woman facing an unplanned pregnancy; they are however sadly mistaken in believing that they can solve a woman’s problem by killing their children. They are not the “unsung heroes” of the medical profession but have sadly become serial killers and a disgrace to the medical profession.
The true unsung heroes of the medical profession are those doctors motivated with true compassion for the mother and respect for the sanctity of life of the unborn embrace the mother and her child in the womb as two precious patients. These doctors will do everything possible to support the mother and help her to choose life for her precious child, who is a unique an unrepeatable miracle of creation.
There are more than 12,000 doctors working in New Zealand. It is encouraging to note that the number of doctors in New Zealand prepared to become involved in authorising the killing of the unborn as certifying consultants and abortionists is decreasing. According to the Abortion Supervisory Committee, there were in 2004, 201 certifying consultants. Ten years later in 2014 the number had declined drastically by 35 to 166. The vast majority of doctors wish to uphold the sanctity of life of every human being from conception to natural death, they are aware of the great damage that abortion inflicts on women’s health. We look forward to the day when all doctors will recognise that abortion is violence against women and their precious unborn and abortion will become not only unlawful but unthinkable.
