Media Release 14 March 2021
This was a government bill posing as a private members bill. The government claimed that this was a conscience vote. Right to Life believes that government MPs were directed to support government policy by voting for this bill at its first reading. Sixty two government MPs dutifully voted for the bill with three MPs being permitted to vote against it to sustain the charade that this was a conscience vote.
The culture of death demands complete subservience, it does not compromise.
The language used in the debate was designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of concern for women. Right to Life believes that the government wants to control what we think, what we say and where we may assemble, this bill is an important first step in this agenda.
Right to Life believes that the government wants to silence those who seek to challenge the government’s promotion of a culture of death. The government, having rejected the authority of the Creator, has taken to itself the right to decide who shall live and who shall die.
Louisa Wall, the one chosen by the government to sponsor this bill made outrageous claims that abortion patients had been photographed going into abortion clinics, having there number plates taken down and subsequently seeing placards bearing their names. These are very serious accusations, where is your evidence?
Louisa Wall, claims that abortion patients have been accused of being murderer’s by those opposed to the violence against women and the unborn, again where is your evidence?
Louisa claims that these prayer vigils violate the New Zealand Bill of Rights, section 9, “right not to be subject to torture or cruel treatment.”
Louisa Wall, in her closing address concluded by saying,” how proud she was to be part of a legacy of women who work to eliminate violence and the oppression of women.” Louisa, how can you claim to care about women when you oppose the right of women to be born and support female children being killed in the womb? How sad, she genuinely but misguidedly believes that she is helping women. Why does she not recognise that abortion is violence inflicted upon women? Why does she not recognise the violence inflicted on defenceless unborn babies who are poisoned in medical abortions, suctioned or violently and painfully dismembered limb from limb in the womb in surgical abortions sanctioned and funded by her government, Is this not torture or cruel treatment?
This was a phony debate for many MPs completely disregarded our right to free speech, assembly and communication violated by this bill and relied on misinformation and false accusations to justify their support for this bill that violates our human rights.
This bill is opposed by the Law Commission. The Law Commission, on safe zones advised the Minister, “At this time the Commission does not see a strong case for this.”………”The Commission sought input from health professional bodies, abortion service providers and health practitioners about safe access zones. The majority felt that safe access zones were not needed.”
Right to Life requests Louisa Wall and the government to advise our nation why they seek “safe zones” around the killing centres when the Law Commission, abortion service providers, health practitioners and District Health Boards are not asking for “safe zones”?
