Media Release 23 June 2022
The first victim in any war is truth.
The violent killing of the innocent unborn in the government’s new Decide telehealth abortion service is promoted by making lies acceptable and murder respectable. A government that believes that killing its own children is a health service is morally corrupt.
The Associate Minister of Health Dr Ayesha Verrall stated in a media release in February 2022, “A new national abortion telehealth service called Decide is the latest milestone in improving abortion services.”
The title Decide is misleading and based on the appalling lie that a woman has a right to decide to kill her unborn child any time up to birth.
The Minister celebrates the introduction of “Decide” as a milestone and a “service” for which we should thank the government. Sadly it is not so, it is a day of abysmal shame for the government’s refusal to protect the health of women and the lives of our precious unborn.
The Ministry of Health, in responding to an Official Information Act request from Right to Life, stated on 30th March 2022 that Telehealth requests from women for pre-abortion counselling,
” would be referred to an independent sub-contractor by Family Planning and Magma Healthcare Ltd. This provider is experienced in abortion counselling and will provide un-biased support for those who have asked to have counselling provided.”
Right to Life believes that the unbiased counselling to be provided will conform to the government’s agenda and deny scientific truth. That abortion is a woman’s right to choose, that the unborn child is just a clump of cells, that abortion is health care and just the removal of the contents of the uterus.
- It will deny that human life begins at conception.
- That the unborn child is a human being endowed with human rights the foundation right being a right to life.
- That abortion is violence against women and the unborn.
- That abortion increases the risk of breast cancer and the risk of miscarriage and prematurity in future pregnancies.
- That abortion increases the risk of mental illness, depression, drug addiction and suicide.
Abortion counselling has an important function to perform in the multi-million dollar abortion industry. Every woman who receives counselling and chooses life for her child in preference to proceeding with an abortion impacts on the profitability of Family Planning and Magma HealthCare Ltd.
