Right to Life encourages the churches, the pro-life and pro-women movement in New Zealand to work together to capitalise on the great victory provided by the US Supreme Court to stop the war and violence inflicted on women and their unborn in New Zealand; a war promoted and financed by Jacinda Ardern and her government.
Right to Life believes that the overturn of Roe v Wade will ultimately result in the recognition in the United States and in New Zealand of the humanity of the unborn child as a human being from conception and endowed by its Creator with an inalienable right to life.
The decision of the United States Supreme Court to overturn Roe v Wade is not the end to abortion but it is the beginning of that end. The decision has brought a halt to in many states, the violent murder of the unborn . This has been a holocaust which has resulted in the killing of over 63,000,000 unborn children since 1973 and the terrible wounding of their mothers, the second victim of abortion. The impact of this has been wide and deep, cutting savagely into the psychological well-being of this nation and significantly impacting its demographics.
There are nineteen States that have passed legislation to outlaw the killing of the unborn and seven States that will severely restrict abortion. These States have legislation recognising that the unborn are human beings endowed with a right to life.
The American pro-life movement will now campaign for the Supreme Court to recognise that unborn children are human beings with a right to life entitled to the protection of the US Constitution’s amendments 5 and 14. When that historic moment arrives the killing of the unborn will be outlawed in every State.
The overturn of Roe v Wade will have important ramifications for the international community including New Zealand. The Labour government in passing the extremist Abortion Legislation Act 2020 was influenced by the US Supreme Court’s 1973, Roe v Wade decision that there is a Constitutional right to abortion.
The Minister of Justice, Andrew Little claimed that under section 159 of the Crimes Act, “Killing of unborn child”, 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 is used by the government to justify the killing of unborn children, who are the weakest and most defenceless members of the human family. The previous Minister of Justice when requested if he had evidence to proof that the unborn child was not a human being until born replied that he had no evidence. The new Minister of Justice Kiri Allan has also been asked and has declined to reply.
Science acknowledges that human life begins at conception. That new life is a unique and unrepeatable miracle of God’s loving creation and that the child is a human being with a right to life. It is an intolerable injustice that the government continues to promote the cruel lie that abortion is a woman’s right to choose and that every woman has the right to kill her children before birth. Pregnancy is not a disease and abortion is not health care. The day is fast approaching when thanks to the overturning of Roe v Wade this orchestrated litany of lies will be silenced.
We need to show that we can create a world where we can love children and not kill them. A world where adoption is always a better option, a world where we care for women and their children. This is our opportunity to make the grisly performance of abortion like slavery unthinkable in a civilised modern society.
