The Minister of Justice is aware that to legalise the killing of those unborn children classified as unwanted, it is necessary to deny their humanity and their human rights. He has done this at the direction of the Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern.
The government’s Abortion Legislation Bill denies the humanity and the human rights of the unborn and removes those to be killed from the protection of the Crimes Act.
There are similarities between the final solution of Nazi Germany and the final solution of Andrew Little. Both are government funded and authorised programmes. There is a direct parallel between those innocent and defenceless victims murdered by the Nazi’s and the innocent and defenceless victims who are being rejected by our community as unwanted. Both had been denied their humanity and their right to life. Both were murdered under the guise that this was a health service. The bodies of the victims were and are incinerated as medical waste. The victims were nameless and the only record of the victims is in statistical records.
Are we unwittingly following the example of the Nazi leader, Heinrich Himmler, head of the Gestapo and SS and the author of the final solution to exterminate European Jews. He knew that it was necessary to deny the humanity of Jews and their human rights to justify their killing. In May 1923, Adolph Hitler asserted, “The Jews are undoubtedly a race, but not human.” It was the Supreme Court in Germany later in 1923 that declared that Jews were not human beings and persons with human rights.
Right to Life makes no apology for making this analogy and for speaking up in defence of women and their unborn and are empowered by the words of the famous German minister Martin Niemöller who was imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp who famously said:-
“First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me-and there was no one left to speak for me.”
Right to Life applauds the courageous 31 MPs who voted to defend life by voting against the Bill. We now request that the 81 MPs who voted to support the Jacinda Ardern led Labour government Abortion Legislation Bill at its second reading now withdraw their support at the third reading.
