Media Release 28 July 2021
Nobody has the right to choose to kill another innocent human being. It is an intolerable injustice and a betrayal of women for the government of Jacinda Ardern to deceive women with the lie that women have a right to kill their children before they are born. It was the Hon Andrew Little who faithfully promoted this deception when presenting the Abortion Legislation bill at its first reading in 2019 by reminding Parliament that the unborn child was not a human being and did not have a right to life until it was born, this is a legal fiction. These chilling words were reminiscent of the Nazi Jewish holocaust when the Nazis justified the murder of Jews by denying the humanity and right to life of Jews.
The Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, claims to be a feminist and reminds us that New Zealand led the way in granting women the vote in 1893. Why then does the Prime Minister not support the right of women to be born?
Since she took office in 2017 more than 20,000 babies who would have grown to be women have been denied the right to vote because they were first denied the right to be born, having been killed before birth as health care authorised and funded by the government as a core health service. This is both anti-life and anti-feminist, it is an appalling injustice to women and a crime against humanity.
It is a monstrous lie that has contributed to pain and suffering, for millions of women throughout the world and to the killing of innocent and defenceless unborn children. Never before in the history of mankind has such a blatant lie promoted by Family Planning and the International Planned Parenthood Federation in its war against women, its promotion of a culture of death, been the cause of such misery and destruction.
The slogan “a woman’s right to choose” was invented in 1969 by Dr Bernard Nathanson, a founder of the American, National Association for Repeal of Abortion Laws. He later had a conversion and actively defended the right to life of the unborn when he saw on an ultra sound screen an unborn child with its mouth open in a silent scream, struggling to stay alive in the midst of an abortion.
Dr Nathanson later said that he always knew it was a lie. We knew it was not true, they knew it was not true and now society at large knows that it is not true. It is a monstrous lie.
Right to Life believes that the government also knows that it is a monstrous lie.
What then specifically is the pro-death movement trying to hide under the disarming slogan, “a woman’s right to choose”. It is none other than a right to kill another human being, not one who is able to defend itself from attack but the weakest and most defenceless member of the human family, an unborn child who is a unique and unrepeatable miracle of the Creator. The destruction of God’s precious infants will bring down the wrath of God on society.
In the biblical book, Deuteronomy it says, “I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life that your children may live.” As a society, we must do all we can to help women choose life for their children. God will not bless a nation that kills its own children.
