Please sign this petition on the parliamentary website, placed there by Sarah Jane Cairns, a member of our society. It calls for the humane treatment of babies who survive an attempted abortion and are born alive. The Abortion legislation Act 2020 does not include in its clauses any specific protection for any babies who might survive an abortion.
This petition closes on 15th March 2021, so please follow the link to the parliamentary petitions website and sign it there.
That the House of Representatives amend the law to specify a requirement that children born alive as a result of an abortion be provided immediately with appropriate medical care and treatment.
I believe any health practitioner who performs an abortion that results in the birth of a child, or any other health practitioner present at the time the child is born, has a duty to provide the child with appropriate medical care and treatment. The duty owed by any health practitioner to provide medical care and treatment to a child born as a result of an abortion is no different than the duty owed to provide medical care and treatment to a child born other than as a result of an abortion.
Please pray the following prayer in support of this important petition to our New Zealand Parliament:
Father God I pray that all the pro life organizations and churches get behind the petition. I pray that the signing and sharing of the petition is like a wild fire that sets hearts and minds and souls alive with passion for the unborn/ babies. I pray that over 10,000 people will sign it. I pray that this petition marks the beginning of great positive change in NZ, that this petition will lead onto others done to help the unborn gain rights and protections. I pray for the uniting and igniting of pro lifers and believers of NZ.
I pray they recognize that now is the time to step up and make a difference. Jesus give those a voice that have been silent for far too long. Give them the strength, courage and boldness to step up and speak for the unborn. I pray for the hearts, minds and souls of those in parliament that the veil comes off their eyes and see what abortion really does. I pray their heart softens towards those in the womb. I pray that they become convicted and can no longer support abortion anymore and repent and then speak out that abortion is wrong. I pray all this in your mighty name, Jesus. Amen
