Media Release 26 February 2022
Right to Life welcomes the brilliant judgement of Justice Francis Cooke in the High Court on the lawfulness of the vaccine mandate imposed by the government on members of the Police force and the Defence force.
The community is indebted to these courageous citizens who brought this important conscience issue to the High Court.
The judgement is a victory for the supremacy of the conscience of the individual over the dictates of a controlling state. It upholds the human right of the appellants to exercise their conscience in refusing the demand of the government to subject their bodies to a medical procedure, specifically, the experimental Pfizer gene therapy.
Right to Life believes that this judgement gives support and encouragement to the thousands of hard working doctors, nurses, health care workers, teachers and other New Zealanders who have been cruelly deprived of their profession and work because they refused the demand of the government to accept the Pfizer vaccine.
Never before in the history of New Zealand has the right to work been subject to our vaccination status.
Justice Cooke accepted the appellants’ claim that the government mandate violated their human rights guaranteed by the NZ Bill of Rights Act 1990, the right to refuse a medical treatment and the right to manifest religious beliefs.
The appellants recognised and argued that the Pfizer “vaccine’ had been tested with the cell line HEK 293 which was unethically produced from a baby killed in a late term abortion performed by caesarean section. The baby, while still alive and without an anaesthetic, had its kidney painfully removed to be used to produce a cell line. This was an appalling violation of the right to life of the child and a crime against humanity.
Right to Life requests that the government accepts the just judgement of Justice Cooke and now revoke vaccination mandates and restore employment to the thousands of New Zealanders deprived of their work through the punitive and damaging mandates.
The government knew, when it purchased the Pfizer and other vaccines, that they had been produced or tested with cell lines from aborted babies. Right to Life again requests that the government purchase only vaccines that have been ethically produced and tested without the use of cell lines derived from babies killed in abortions.
