Media Release 12 June 2021
When is the government going to recognise the right of taxpayers to choose not to fund the murder of the innocent and defenceless unborn? The state arrogantly assumes that we all support the state funded abortion industry, but we don’t and we never will.
It is a massive injustice for the government to force us to fund the killing of our own children in the womb and this intolerable violence against women. The government is arrogant in forcing us to be complicit in the violent murder of the innocent, for their dismembered bodies to be treated as medical waste, to be disposed of at the city refuse dump and to accept the blood of the innocent on our hands.
The government of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, and supporters of this culture of death claim that it is a woman’s right to choose to kill her child as a “reproductive choice for women” without regulation or interference from anyone else, including the father of the child and at the same time deny the taxpayer the right to choose to not have their taxes fund the killing.
Right to Life asks Jacinda Ardern and her government when are they going to allow the community the right to choose not to pay taxes to fund her government’s abortion industry on the pretext that we are funding health care.
The abortion industry is a core health service with unlimited funding and no waiting lists.
Pregnancy is not a disease and abortions are not health care. Abortion is violence against women and the defenceless unborn, and it damages women’s health.
The unborn child is a patient and abortion is the only “health service “ which is intended to kill a patient and a patient who is well.
Consider the report of the Abortion Supervisory Committee to Parliament in 1988 when they reported on the “current unwieldly system of the termination of potentially normal pregnancies on pseudo legal grounds.”
It is a travesty of justice that tax payer funded abortions take health care dollars away from urgently needed health services that are under-funded. In the governments “wellbeing budget” for 2021 more than $13 million is allocated for the killing of more than 13,000 unborn children and a further $ 5 million is allocated for the transfer of oversight and monitoring from Justice to Health Ministries. Taxpayers have been forced to pay for the killing of more than 500,000 unborn children since 1978.
Women are deceived into believing that abortion is health care and that it is their choice to have an abortion – but everyone else must pay for it.
Right to Life asks why is the government oppressing us by imposing its morality on us by compelling us to fund its abortion industry?
We should follow the American example under a Republican administration, with the prohibition of federal money being used to pay for abortions in the United States or overseas.
