Is Stuff anti-life and anti-feminist?
Media Release 15 December 2021
Right to Life is concerned that Stuff, the owner of many newspapers in New Zealand, is unfairly criticising Christopher Luxon, the leader of the National Party for being opposed to the violent killing of the unborn and the vulnerable by assisted suicide and euthanasia.
Andrea Vance , a highly respected senior journalist at Stuff, recently wrote ” Luxon’s views speak volumes about a disdainful attitude to women.” She accused him of being a fundamentalist and states, “He claims to be pro-life, a phrase American conservatives use to cloak the underlying misogyny of anti-abortion legislation.”
New Zealand needs leaders of political parties and Members of Parliament who have a fundamental belief in the sanctity of every human being from conception to natural death.
Stuff should be celebrating that Christopher Luxon
- Believes that human life begins at conception and that every child is endowed by its Creator with an inalienable right to life.
- Believes it is always wrong to kill another innocent human being, especially the violent killing of defenceless and innocent unborn children.
- Believes that the poisoning and the suctioning of the child or its violent dismemberment in its mother’s womb is murder and a crime and not in the words of Jacinda Ardern “a reproductive choice for women.” When asked on Newshub on 1st December to confirm if abortion is tantamount to murder, he said: “That’s what a pro-life position is.”
Right to Life believes that abortion is violence against women and that women deserve respect, love and help to choose life for their child.
Andrea Vance is a distinguished and highly acclaimed journalist who mistakenly believes that her views are feminist. Authentic feminism is inclusive, non-violent and protective of children. More than 12,000 children are violently killed every year in New Zealand with more than 6,000 being female. If Andrea is really a feminist, why does she not support their right to be born?
Right to Life questions Stuff’s impartiality being aware that the government recently gave $55 million to the media to promote “responsible journalism.“
Stuff’s website states: “Our journalism will remain free from political or commercial influence as our company charter enshrines, Stuff’s source of revenue does not affect impartiality or objectivity of our journalists , the investigations we undertake or how we scrutinise the powerful.”
There is a disturbing and declining trust in the media revealed in a recent poll conducted by the Auckland University. There is an urgent need for the media to regain this trust by promoting equality and by defending the right to life of all New Zealanders from conception and to support political leaders and Members of Parliament who defend our God given right to life.
