Women’s rights begin in the womb.
The campaign for equality for those inside their mother’s wombs is the civil right’s struggle of this century. Why does the Prime Minister choose to be on the wrong side of history?
Right to Life asks the Prime Minister why she claims to be a feminist but supports the anti-feminist position that discriminates against women before birth? If she was genuinely concerned about the rights of women why does she refuse to recognise the humanity of unborn female children, their inalienable right to life and their right to be born?
Right to Life believes that justice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. Those who govern us do so with the permission of the governed. Our nation has an absolute right to only choose those to govern us who will defend the right to life of every member of the community from conception to natural death.
Right to Life welcomes the future overthrow of the Supreme Court decision Roe v Wade, which in 1973 unleased a 49 year reign of terror of violence on women and their precious unborn in the United States. Since 1973 more than 64 million unborn children have been killed in their mother’s womb. It was Roe v Wade that denied the humanity of unborn children and their right to life.
Following Roe v Wade, and the legalisation of abortion in NZ in 1977, more than 550,000 innocent children have been violently killed in New Zealand before birth.
Since the government of Jacinda Ardern took office in 2017 more than 80,000 unborn children have been killed, authorised and funded by the government. This is a crime against humanity and an intolerable burden on the conscience of the nation.
Abortion has inflicted appalling physical, psychological and spiritual damage to millions of women not only in the United States, but throughout the world, including New Zealand.
The Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, architect of the extremist Abortion Legislation Act 2020 recently stated that “the overthrow of Roe v Wade was an issue of women’s health and women’s rights.”
She is mistaken in believing that every woman has a right to kill her children up to birth and that abortion is health care. There is no such right recognised in any UN convention.
Roe v Wade was “egregiously wrong” from the start and its reasoning is “exceptionally weak.” Justice Alito concluded that it’s time the issue went back to the states: “That is what the Constitution and the rule of law demand. Our Nation’s historical understanding of ordered liberty does not prevent the people’s elected representatives from deciding how abortion should be regulated,”
Those who support abortion claim that this is the authentic feminist position, however this is false. True feminism seeks justice, is non-discriminatory and non-violent. Up until the early twentieth century, feminism was vehemently opposed to abortion. How can one be truly feminist if one is not prepared to uphold the right of every unborn child to be born?
We believe in a woman’s right to control her body and she deserves this right no matter where she lives, even if she’s still living inside her mother’s womb.
