Family Planning in a recent media release, have declared war on women in New Zealand. In September 2012, the Association announced in a media release that they were, together with the Abortion Law Reform Association of New Zealand and the Women’s Health Action Trust embarking on a national campaign to have abortion decriminalised in New Zealand. The NZFPA media release stated, “that the time has come to have abortion removed from the Crimes Act 1961 and managed as a health matter.”
In 2009 the NZFPA stated in a media release that they were working within the law and “were not seeking to change it.” The NZFPA have now revealed their true intentions of ignoring the rights of unborn children and making it no longer a crime to kill an innocent and defenceless child in the womb. This position entails rejecting the recommendations of the Royal Commission on Contraception Sterilisation and Abortion that found that human life began at conception and that the unborn child as the weakest and most defenceless member of the human family deserved respect and legal protection. The NZFPA by rejecting the findings of the Royal Commission have set themselves up as the enemy of women and their precious unborn. Their stance is also an affront to Parliament which accepted in 1977 the recommendations of the Royal Commission.
