Media Release 2 November 2022
Right to Life is disappointed that the government continues to promote the violent killing of our precious unborn children and violence against women as health care. The Decide programme intensifies the chemical warfare that the government is inflicting on our own children who are unique and unrepeatable miracles of God’ loving creation.
Right to Life asks, If today the government provides an 0800 number to obtain lethal drugs to kill our unborn children, will justice demand that a future government provide an 0800 phone number for our children to obtain lethal drugs to kill us when we become a burden?
Dr Ayesha Verrall, Associate Minister of Health responsible for overseeing legislation for killing the unborn and for the terminally ill, stated on Tuesday in a media release from the Beehive, “People seeking an abortion will have better access to care from today.”
“This is a huge step towards normalising and improving access to abortion care and I continue to be encouraged by the dedication of health professionals delivering this vital service.” The Minister as a woman and a mother should know that only women seek an abortion, men do not have a uterus and are not women. Cancelling out women is offensive.
Right to Life questions the safety of early medical abortions. According to information provided by Medical Statistics at the Ministry of Health there were 203 women in 2021 diagnosed with complications prior to discharge resulting from a medical abortion both early and late, resulting in an unknown number of women being admitted to hospital for a total of 54 days.
Today, 1st November, the government continues its war on women with the culmination of its National Abortion Telehealth service. Women are encouraged to dial a 0800 number to seek the killing of their unborn child. If the child is less than 10 weeks old the lethal drugs are then posted or couriered to the woman’s home.
The government claims that the Decide programme protects the rights of women. Right to Life challenges this claim because the Ministry denies the right of women to change their mind after taking Mifepristone. It refuses to allow women to save their baby by accepting progesterone treatment in accordance with the successful abortion pill reversal protocol which has saved the lives of more than 2,500 unborn babies.
The first lethal drug is Mifepristone, which kills the child by starving it of nourishment, the second drug is Misoprostol which forcibly expels the child from the sanctuary of its mother’s womb.
The Decide programme is totally focused on killing the child, this programme is silent on life alternatives such as the adoption, parenting or fostering of the child. This programme does not care about women or the unborn, it cares only about promoting abortion.
The abortion industry is a multi – million dollar industry. The government has contracted out the killing of the unborn who have been classified as unwanted. The Family Planning Association supports the killing of the unborn as a backup for failed contraception and has won a contract to implement the Decide programme with the Magma Health Care Ltd.
Our women deserve better than abortion. A nation that kills its own children is a nation without a future.
