Media Release 19 August 2021
When will the Government Stop the Abortion Pandemic?
Right to Life believes that the greatest threat to human life in New Zealand is not Covid 19 but the threat of being violently murdered before birth in the sanctuary and security of the mother’s womb. This is a violation of human rights, a crime against humanity and an intolerable burden on the conscience of our nation.
The pandemic is a major distraction from the abortion pandemic that is ravishing our nation. The Covid -19 pandemic was officially recognised on 21 March 2020. Since then 26 people have sadly died from Coronavirus. During this period more than 17,000 innocent unborn children have been violently murdered before birth in a pandemic shamefully authorised and funded by the government. Right to Life asks is the government really serious about protecting the lives of New Zealanders?
The government, with the support of the media, have decided that it is in the public interest to hide this abortion pandemic behind a carefully orchestrated wall of deafening silence. Why does the government remain silent when an estimated 36 unborn children are taken every day to Public killing centres to be poisoned, suctioned out of their mother’s wombs or to be violently and painfully dismembered?
Our nation is in lockdown to protect the lives of every member of the community from the threat of death from Covid-19. Our Prime Minister commendably wants us to believe that every life is precious and is encouraging individuals to “look after each other.”
She has encouraged, “individuals to be kind and compassionate towards others”.
Right to Life asks the Prime Minister, how have you shown kindness and compassion to our unborn and their mothers by designing the Abortion Legislation Act that allows the killing of the unborn up to birth as it is no longer a crime but in the words of the Prime Minister “a reproductive health choice”, It also denies that the unborn child is a human being with a right to life until it is born?
It is a sad irony that on one hand the government declares a category four lockdown to protect life, cancelling non urgent surgery while on the other hand declares that the killing of the unborn by abortion is an “essential health service” that must not be delayed by a pandemic.
Right to Life asks, when is the government going to acknowledge that we have an abortion pandemic. How can the government claim to be concerned with valuing and protecting life when they authorise and fund the murder of innocent children?
