Media Release 18 April 2018
The Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern rightly deplores the Syrian civil war and the recent chemical gas attack in Damascus where an estimated 80 civilians including 20 children were killed. The prime minister has expressed “the strongest condemnation” of the chemical attack in eastern Ghouta, Syria, while the foreign minister has labelled it a war crime. On Tuesday, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Foreign Minister Winston Peters condemned the attack, and said those behind it needed to be held to account. “This is an appalling use of a weapon against a population who are innocent; a civilian population. We should be condemning it, and are.” However while these sentiments may be admirable the fact is the New Zealand government is conducting its own chemical warfare programme against our own children, which is a crime against humanity.
.It is totally inconsistent for the Prime Minister and the Deputy Prime Minister to denounce the Syrian crimes against humanity while at the same time giving approval for the use of weapons of mass destruction by chemical warfare in New Zealand. We are conducting our own bloody civil war against our own children. The Abortion Supervisory Committee reported to Parliament in 2017 that 1,970 pre-born children were killed in their mother’s womb with the lethal chemical poison 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 the introduction of this new chemical warfare against the unborn there have been nearly 20,000 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, 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 also an ardent supporter of chemical warfare against the unborn with Mifegyne and in April 2013 commenced killing unborn children at its Tauranga clinic.
It is hypocritical for our government to condemn crimes against humanity in other countries while actively waging a war against our own children, which is approved and funded by the government.
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.
