“That children are important. Every child needs to be loved and wanted.” Statement on ‘Abortion Law Reform Association of New Zealand website
Right to Life fully endorses this statement it is absolutely true. Children are important they are the future generation , without children our nation has no future. Every child not only has a need to be loved and wanted they have a right to be loved and wanted. The difficulty with the philosophy of ALRANZ is that they claim that the mother has the right to decide if the child in her womb is loved and wanted. If the mother decides that the child is not loved and not wanted she then has the right to have the child destroyed. This is a great injustice and a denial of the inalienable right to life conferred on the child at conception by the child’s Creator. There are many in the community who desperately want children to adopt and love. There is no such thing as an unwanted child. Why does ALRANZ not join with Right to Life in promoting adoption as a loving option? The instinct of the mother is to love and protect the child in her womb. The reality is that many women are abandoned by the father of the child and failing to receive the support that she needs is coerced into having an abortion as an accepted “health service”.It is not a health service, it is violence against women and their precious children. If we really want to help distressed women with an unplanned pregnancy we will provide them with the love and care they need to bring their child to birth. We should never allow an unborn child or any other human being to be classified as “unwanted”.
