The Minister of Justice, Andrew Little, at the direction of the Prime Minister has produced the Abortion Legislation bill which rejects the findings of the Royal Commission and consolidates the government authorised and funded genocide against our own children.
The Abortion Legislation Bill represents man’s inhumanity towards women and is for the benefit of men who are not prepared to accept responsibility for the children they father. Women are the victims of the so called sexual revolution. A nation that kills its own children has no future.
The unborn child is the weakest and most defenceless member of the human family. Every child is a unique and unrepeatable miracle of God’s loving creation, it should be received with the dignity due to the human person.
The Royal Commission on Contraception Sterilisation and Abortion in its report to Parliament in 1977 stated, upholding the status of the unborn child. “The unborn child, as one of the weakest, the most vulnerable and most defenceless forms of humanity, should receive protection. From a biological point of view there is no argument as to when life begins. Evidence was given to us by eminent scientists from all over the world. None of them suggested that human life begins at any other time than at conception”
The bill denies the irrefutable truth that the unborn child is a human being deserving of our respect and our protection. Having denied the humanity of the child it then denies the human rights of the child. Having achieved these objectives should this bill be passed it would no longer be a crime to kill the child.
The Labour led government has shamefully and faithfully followed the example of the Nazi regime that before it launched genocide against the Jews first legislated to deny the humanity of the Jews and then to deny their human rights.
If we cannot learn from history, we are destined to repeat the same mistakes. The bill repeals the long title of the CS&A Act which directed that “abortions may be authorised only after full regard of the rights of the unborn child”
It is a serious crime to kill an innocent human being including unborn children, this is the foundation of the law and of medicine. It is a great injustice and a crime against humanity for the government to declare that it is not a crime to kill an unborn child. It is also a great injustice for the government to withdraw its protection of vulnerable women from the violence of abortion, women who are often exploited, coerced and abandoned.
Right to Life believes that this bill which seeks to establish a right to kill the unborn child for any reason will ultimately result in a duty to kill the child with forced abortions for pregnancies not authorised by the state.
Right to Life calls upon Parliament to protect women and their precious unborn by voting to defeat this unjust bill it at its first reading.
