Media Relase Anzac Day 25th April 2019
We must never forget the sacrifices that they made in order that future generations may live in freedom and enjoy our inalienable right to life. Throughout our nation there are monuments commemorating their sacrifice, which today we remember.
It is an illusion however that we are now living in peace and are free from war. Today we are engaged in another bloody war, not with a foreign aggressor but in a war against a new enemy, our own children. Why do we feel threatened by our own children in the womb, who are the weakest and most defenceless member of the human family? Pregnancy is not a disease, or an enemy, so again we must ask why has the womb become a battleground more violent than Gallipoli?
Since the passing of the Contraception Sterilisation and Abortion Act in 1977, there have been more than 500,000 children killed in the womb in New Zealand. The total number of New Zealanders killed in overseas conflicts, since the Boer War total 96,241. These children were deemed to be unwanted, of little worth and their existence a problem. They are unnamed, worthy only of being a number in our abortion statistics. No tombstone marks their last resting place. Their mortal remains deemed to be medical waste to be incinerated in the same callous manner as the disposal of the Jews after slaughter at Nazi extermination camps during the Second World War.
The Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and her Labour led government are now passionately committed to accelerating this war against our own children. She is at the helm of a move to change our laws. In effect this is nothing other than a deliberate and blatant ploy to decriminalse murder of our most vulnerable and to coerce women into believing that killing their unborn children is not only ‘healthcare’, but that to do so is their ‘right’.
The Prime Minister is further committed to leading us down a road which embraces death being a solution to our problems, by supporting and voting for the End of Life Choice bill. A pernicious bill that if passed, would threaten the right to life of the elderly, the disabled and the seriously ill. It would empower doctors to kill their patients or assist in their suicide and confuse the vulnerable young by promoting suicide as a solution to life’s problems.
The war against women and the unborn has the full approval of this government and previous governments, who have ensured unlimited funding of the killing is designated a core health service. Its true horror has been disguised, by calling it an “essential medical service”, and a “reproductive choice for women”.
These children were not a threat to society; they came bringing gifts to enrich us all. All that they sought was to be allowed to love and to be loved. This internecine war is also one waged against women, who are its second victims. We should also mourn with all those fathers who have been unable to save their children from a violent death.
New Zealand will continue to grow in violence and never know true peace, nor can we claim to be a just society, while we continue making war against our own children and consider legislation that would allow the state to empower doctors to kill their patients or assist in their suicide. The governments proposals are an affront to the sacrifices made by brave New Zealand men and women who gave their lives to defend and protect all New Zealanders from conception till natural death.
