Parliament has duty to Protect Unborn Children and their Mothers from the violence of abortion.The Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern states that we should “know us by Our Deeds”
The Prime Minister is correct, we do know her by her deeds. As our appointed leader she and her government’s most important duty is to protect the right to life of every New Zealander from conception to natural death. Those MPs who betray that duty forfeit their right to sit in our Parliament. At the next election she and her government will be judged on the way they have protected the most vulnerable in our community. Today the most vulnerable in our community are our unborn. Tragically today the most dangerous place for a New Zealander is in its mother’s womb.
Every day in New Zealand an estimated 35 unborn children in potentially normal pregnancies are taken to Public Hospitals and abortion clinics to be violently murdered, authorised and funded by her Labour led government.
The law of God is written in the hearts of man. It is the commandment of our Creator, that we should not kill. The total prohibition of the killing of an innocent human being is the foundation of the law and of medicine. We violate this commandment at our peril. Why then is it the wish of our Prime Minister that we pretend that it is no longer a crime to kill an unborn child? It is her wish supported by the Minister of Justice that the killing of a child in the womb be “a reproductive choice for women.”
This is a grave injustice, no government has authority to repeal a commandment of our Creator. The Prime Minister should be aware that she is in danger of calling down the wrath of God on our nation by challenging the authority of God.
Right to Life requests that Members of Parliament uphold this commandment by defending the lives of our unborn children by voting against the anti-women and anti-life government Abortion Legislation Bill at its second reading.
There will be a general election in September and those Members of Parliament who choose to support the Abortion Legislation Bill at its second reading should expect many in the electorate to withhold electoral support for them.
