The method of execution in New Zealand of murderers under capital punishment prior to 1961 was by hanging, relatively quick. However the most common method of execution for the unborn these days is by surgical dismemberment, which entails violently and painfully tearing off the arms, legs and head off the victim. The bodies of the accused are then treated as “medical waste” and are disposed of at the local land fill.
The Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern is passionate and driven in her desire to reinforce capital punishment not for brutal and violent rapists and murderers, but for the defenceless and innocent unborn who have been found guilty of a more serious crime, the crime of being “unwanted”. Capital punishment is being reaffirmed and reformed by taking abortion out of the Crimes Act and making Capital punishment for the unborn, health care and “a reproductive choice for women”.
The Prime Minister supports the abolition of Capital punishment for rapists and murderers; why then is she determined to retain and extend Capital punishment for the unborn who are the most innocent and defenceless members of our human family.
Right to Life is determined that should the Labour led government present an abortion bill to Parliament, we will ensure that the state funded execution of our children will be a major issue at the next general election.
The Prime Minister confirmed her opposition to the death penalty in the media on 2 April 2019. “New Zealand has always stood against the death penalty, in all its forms, for any reason”. The government is a leading voice in the United Nations for the abolition of Capital Punishment. Excuse me Prime Minister, why then are you personally promoting, funding and indeed driving the legislation which will effectively remove all protections for the unborn and result in the ongoing execution every year of more than 12,000 innocent children?
Family Planning and other vocal advocates for capital punishment for the unborn insist that the process be accessible and that the sentence be carried out without delay, all the while disguising this mass execution as “a reproductive health choice for women” and as health care. Right to Life is determined to oppose this Labour government led genocide.
Capital punishment for murder was removed from the statute books in 1961. There was a total of 85 convicted criminals executed in New Zealand between 1842 and 1957. New Zealand still retains the death penalty for its unborn children. Since 1977, the government has presided over the execution and killing of more than 500,000 innocent and defenceless unborn children who were found guilty of being “unwanted.” Being an unwanted unborn child in New Zealand effectively, is more often than not, a capital offence and means that, more than likely you will be subject to the death penalty.
For the unborn being unwanted is a serious crime, punishable by death. The sentence is imposed by doctors appointed by the Abortion Supervisory Committee, the trial is brief, no witnesses are called in the defence of the child and the sentence of death is carried out as quickly as possible; in a Public Hospital. The executions are authorised and funded by the government.
The government continues to delude itself in believing that it has an admirable and exemplary human rights record. The truth is that the government’s hands are covered in the blood of our aborted children and the consciences of our politicians must share in the guilt for this bloodshed and for the grief and sorrow inflicted on the poor mothers, the second victims of abortion.
