It is the first duty of the State to protect the lives of every member of the community from conception to natural death and not to preside over our destruction.
The government and Parliament are commended for declaring a state of emergency to confront the threat to human life presented by the coronavirus pandemic and to protect the lives of New Zealanders. Prime Minister, when is your government going to declare a national emergency to protect the lives of the more than 13,000 unborn children who are murdered each year in abortions?
This is the same Parliament and government that only one week ago, while other Parliaments were giving urgency to debating a response to the Coronavirus pandemic, debated abortion legislation for four hours and rushed through Parliament the anti-life and anti-women Abortion Legislation Bill that would remove the right to life and facilitate the killing of our unborn children and cause damage to the physical and mental health of their mothers. The same parliament on the same day spent only 2.5 hours debating their response to the fast evolving Coronavirus pandemic.
Dr Bloomfield, Director General of Health told media all our DHBs have plans in place to scale down their current activity, which may include elective surgery and outpatient appointments to free up capacity and staff. Abortion is elective surgery. Right to Life requests that abortions be stopped to free up capacity and staff to concentrate on helping Coronavirus patients.
Prime Minister, are you really serious about wanting to protect the lives of all New Zealanders? While Coronavirus represents a grave threat with as unknown magnitude, abortion also poses a great threat to the lives of New Zealanders who are alive but not yet born. One in five defenceless children in the womb will be innocent victims of abortion. The fatality rate from abortion for the unborn is 100%. To keep things in perspective, we should be aware that since the declaration of emergency on Wednesday more than 70 unborn children have been violently killed in abortions in New Zealand.
Every day an estimated 35 innocent and defenceless unborn children are taken to our Public Hospitals to be violently killed in abortion under the pretext that this is health care. These are the same Hospitals that are now preparing to treat seriously ill patients who may contract coronavirus.
It is fervently hoped that there will be no fatalities resulting from Coronavirus during the period of lockdown. There will however be more than 1,000 unborn children killed during this initial four week period by doctors who are sworn to protect life. The deaths of all these children are preventable.
The abortion industry is deemed to be an essential service and is unaffected by the lock down. It is designated a core health service with unlimited funding and no waiting list. It is elective surgery with abortion on demand for any reason up to 20 weeks gestation and up to birth if two doctors believe that it is ‘appropriate’. There is nothing that can impede the abortion industry, not even a national emergency.
