Media Release 29 June 2022
The overturn of Roe v Wade was not only an historic victory for women and the unborn child but was also a victory for upholding the United States Constitution and the right of States to legislate on abortion and provide legal protection for the right to life of unborn children.
Right to Life is disappointed that all of our political leaders have failed to support the decision of the United States Supreme Court to overturn the deeply flawed and unconstitutional Roe v Wade decision of 1973.
The Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, who supports the killing of the unborn as a health service, stated, the decision was “incredibly disturbing.”
The leader of the National Party, Christopher Luxon who claims to be pro-life and believes that abortion is murder, stated in his maiden speech that he would not force his beliefs on others. He said that the Roe v Wade decision was “incredibly shocking and incredibly distressing,”
David Seymour, ACT leader, who supports abortion, stated that he was “flabbergasted.”
Jan Logie, Greens, Spokesperson for women, who supports abortion, stated, “Aotearoa should be a place where everyone …… can choose what is right for their body and their future.”
The Roe v Wade decision was the most evil document in human history, it resulted in a 49 year reign of terror and killing imposed on American women and their unborn. America has been soaked in the blood of 64 million innocent and defenceless children whose only crime was that they were unwanted.
Abortion is violence against women and the unborn. In 1973 there were 30 States that prohibited abortion at all stages of pregnancy.
The Roe v Wade decision of 1973 struck down the laws of 50 States to regulate abortion, to provide legal protection for the lives of unborn children and to protect women, the second victim of abortion, this was a great injustice and an exercise of raw judicial power by the Supreme Court in 1973.
There were 26 States that made substantial written submissions to the Supreme Court in the hearing of the Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organisation demanding the overturn of Roe v Wade and the restoration of their right to legislate on abortion. There was a vast movement in the United States of concerned citizens who worked, demonstrated and petitioned for 49 years for the overturn of Roe v Wade.
Right to Life asks the political leaders in our Parliament who support our Parliamentary democracy with the right to legislate, why they do not applaud the overturning of Roe v Wade and support the States exercising the long awaited restoration of their democratic right?
