Family Planning have decreed in recent advice to journalists, editors and media outlets that an unborn child should never be referred to as an unborn baby or child. In the first ten weeks of gestation it should be referred to as an embryo. From ten weeks to birth it should be referred to as a fetus.
Family Planning [FPA] claims that “the term unborn child is a recent anti-abortion invention and a contradiction in terms. It claims that the unborn child does not become a baby until it is born and that human rights begin only at birth.” It is implicitly denying that the child has a right to be born. The FPA reveals that it is the enemy of women in denying the dignity of women, motherhood and the status of the unborn child as a human being, a person and a member of our human family.
The FPA is at the forefront of the anti -feminist movement in New Zealand. It is incredible that the FPA are in denial about the humanity of the unborn child. Never before in the history of mankind have we with the aid of three dimensional scans been able to witness and marvel with awe at the miracle of God’s creation unfolding in the womb.
Why does the FPA have family in their name when they are the enemy of the natural family?
To promote the killing of the unborn child as a reproductive health service the FPA are committed to promoting the falsehood that the child is a clump of cells and not a human being.
Language is important and Family Planning is using language to dehumanise the unborn, to undermine the status of women and to denigrate the pro-family and pro-life movement. The FPA is denying that human life begins at conception and that the child is endowed at conception with human rights, the foundation right being an inalienable right to life.
The FPA decrees that the terms pro-life, pro-family and pro-abortion should never be used. The terms that the FPA are promoting are anti-abortion, anti-choice and abortion right’s advocates.The FPA also warns that a pregnant woman should never be called a mother or parent.
The FPA claim that the woman has a right to life and health and that the unborn child has no rights. The FPA support sex selection abortions and the killing of children with a disability. The FPA claim that it is wrong to use the term female feticide and”abort disabled children.” The FPA claims that “the right to life and discrimination on grounds of sex or disability apply only after birth”. The FPA claims that the unborn child has no rights therefore it is not possible to discriminate against the child.
Right to Life is campaigning for the government defunding of the FPA and its exclusion from our nation’s schools. They promote a false sexuality which separates sexual intercourse from pro-creation and promiscuity which results in teen age pregnancies, STIs and abortions as a back up for failed contraceptives. The FPA does not promote chastity nor does it promote the natural family of exclusively one man and one women.
