Media Release 24 October 2021
It is an appalling injustice that the state should threaten tens of thousands of workers in New Zealand with the loss of their employment and income to feed and provide for their families if they refuse an order to violate their conscience by taking the Pfizer vaccine.
Right to Life believes that the government of Jacinda Ardern is threatening the human rights of New Zealanders by declaring that health workers and those employed in education have a duty to be vaccinated in order to retain their employment. This includes general practitioners, chemists, midwives, paramedics and rest home staff. It includes primary, secondary teachers and pre -school staff. Who will be next?
The government has decided that these important professionals are a serious threat to public health if they exercise their legal right to choose not to accept the Pfizer vaccine.
Right to Life questions why persons who refuse to take this experimental medical treatment being treated as a serious public health threat when those who are vaccinated are just as likely to carry and spread Covid as the unvaccinated.
On 20th September 2020 Jacinda Ardern was quoted as saying “Not only will there be no forced vaccinations, but those who choose to opt-out won’t face any penalties at all”.
The PM, Jacinda Ardern, before the election in 2020 was asked by Duncan Garner on the AM show “was the government going to apply penalties to those who refused to take the Covid 19 vaccine?”.
She said, “no and we haven’t for any vaccine in New Zealand, applied penalties in that way”.
Mandatory vaccinations violate the Nuremburg Convention, the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990, which protects the right to life, the right to refuse medical treatment, and the right to practice one’s religion. The Human Rights Act 1993 includes the right not to be discriminated against. The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights protects the right to privacy.
Right to Life accepts that the government has a responsibility to protect public health and asks,” why we should trust the government to protect the lives and health of the community when it authorises and funds the killing of more than 13,000 defenceless unborn New Zealanders every year”.
Right to Life supports voluntary vaccination with ethically produced and developed vaccines which are safe and effective. The long term adverse reactions to the Pfizer vaccine are not known as the study does not conclude till January 2023.
Right to Life cannot support this government’s contention that the seriousness of the current pandemic overrides these concerns. We believe that recent evidence shows that those taking an mRNA “vaccine” are potentially permanently altering their body’s immune system in ways which are not fully tested, researched or understood.
We believe that recent evidence shows that those take the mRNA vaccine may be permanently altering their body’s immune system.
Right to Life is therefore disappointed that the government is giving no choice to choose an ethically produced and tested vaccine. We are therefore opposed to mandatory vaccination for the following reasons:-
- Mandatory vaccination is a violation of human rights.
- The state is ignoring the conscience of many in the community who are opposed to accepting the Pfizer vaccine, therefore taking it is a violation of their conscience, as it has been tested using a cell line derived from aborted babies.
- The benefits of the Pfizer vaccine do not justify the state imposing the mandatory vaccination on a sector of the workforce. According to data published in the Lancet, the effectiveness of the Pfizer vaccine in combatting the Delta variant, diminishes rapidly over time. After six months of full vaccination it diminishes in effectiveness from 88% to only 65%.
- The government wishes to establish safe areas free of Covid 19 by excluding the unvaccinated, this ignores the fact that the vaccinated may carry the virus and spread it to others.
