Right to Life makes no apology for speaking up in defence of the human rights of human embryos who are the weakest and most defenceless members of our human family.
IVF and abortion are members of a culture of death which is supported and funded by the government of Jacinda Ardern under the guise of health care. They were also supported by the previous National government.
The IVF procedure entails a massive disrespect for human life at its very beginning; it is a serious violation of human rights. Human life begins at the moment of conception. At conception every human being is endowed with an inalienable right to life. Each one of us began our life’s journey as an embryo.
The human embryo should be treated with the respect that is due to the human person. God, the author of life, has conferred on humans the surpassing ministry of safeguarding life, a ministry which must be fulfilled in a manner which is worthy of us. Therefore, from the moment of conception, life must be guarded with the greatest care.
- Every child has a right to be conceived in the sanctuary of its mother’s womb.
It is a violation of human rights for medical professions to violate God’s plan for procreation by contriving to create new life in a petri dish.
- Every child has a right not to be stored and frozen for up to 10 years.
- Every child has the right not to be used for research, destroyed and then discarded as medical waste.
There are about 900 babies born each year in New Zealand as a result of IVF.
It is estimated that there are 15,000 human embryos, our brothers and sisters who are imprisoned in IVF clinics in New Zealand in cryopreservation, for up to 10 years, for possible future use, after which they must be donated or destroyed. This is an appalling violation of human rights and a crime against humanity.
Right to Life is also opposed to using human embryos for research. There Is considerable pressure on the government to allow research on non-viable and “surplus” embryos from IVF.
Right to Life is committed to continue opposing IVF and this proposed unethical research.
