NZ Child Killing Lobby Feeling the Heat

5 comments | 9:58 am | top |
The pro-abortion lobby in New Zealand is coming under pressure from a growing number of people and groups speaking out against the injustice of abortion.

The Herald reported on Friday, 19 Feb:
"Anti-abortion doctors have gone to court to challenge new Medical Council guidelines on how physicians with personal objections to abortion must deal with patients. One of the doctors is believed to be Mary English, a Wellington GP and wife of Deputy Prime Minister Bill English..." (continue reading)

The new guidelines state that doctors must tell mothers concerned about their pregnancy, that abortion is one of the options. This is the first time this issue has come up in New Zealand, and comes hot on the heels of the recent assault on freedom of conscience in Victoria, Australia which requires pro-life doctors to refer women to pro-abortion doctors if they themselves are not willing to recommend that the mother has her pre-born baby killed by abortion.

And Stop Family Planning, supported by many pro-family and pro-life organisations is maintaining the pressure on the Family Planning Association who have applied to the Abortion Supervisory Committee for a licence to kill pre-born babies up to 9weeks. Representatives from StopFPA and Prolife NZ have requested a meeting with the Prime Minister and the Minister of Health, and planning is under way for future marches in the Country's major cities.

Right to Life is heading back to the Court of Appeal on May 4-5 following the Abortion Supervisory Committee contesting several findings of Justice Miller. One of his comments was that,

"there is reason to doubt the lawfulness of many abortions authorised by certifying consultants.”

Right to Life is a non-profit organization that seeks to be a voice influencing legislation in New Zealand on behalf of those who have absolutely no chance of themselves altering the law which concerns them. The Crown (The Abortion Supervisory Committee) has virtually unlimited funds with which it can fight the findings of Justice Miller in the High Court in July 2008.

Abortion takes the life of a helpless and innocent pre-born human person, without their consent being asked for, or given. Death by abortion is often painful to the child it is killing, and can cause medical complications and lasting psychological trauma to the mothers of the killed children. The abortion industry in new Zealand has been growing more and more arrogant, with calls from retired abortionist Margaret Sparrow and her little organisation, the Abortion Law Reform Association of New Zealand - for abortion to be completely decriminalised as it is in Victoria, Australia. ALRANZ also supports the killing of late-term disabled babies. Now the tide is turning the other way, as New Zealanders acknowledge that our abortion rate (aprox 18,000 every year) is unacceptably high, and that it is outrageous that girls of any age may have their baby killed by abortion without her parents giving consent, or even being given notification.

Hey Ginger Ninja, you always crap on about being a libertarian. I hope you put up and campaign to have the athiest bus campaign banners on NZ buses. Dont you think it is terrible that the bus company wont display the banner.Prove you are a libertarian and protest against the decision. Put up or shut up about being a libertarian. Surely you must defend their right to display their message upon buses along religious messages, or not?

G'day Anonymous. I agree strongly with Voltaire's statement that, "Reverend, I hate what you write, but I will give my life so that you can continue to write."

I hadn't heard that the bus company had refused to run the advertisements. This is disgusting. As it happens, I'm very much in favour of this campaign going ahead - all of us should be prepared to have our ideas and beliefs challenged.

Chill man.

Excellant nice to know you are a supporter of the Athiest Bus campaign. Now as a self professed Libertarian are you prepared to contribute financially, to help challenge the bus companies bias towards allowing religious adverts and not the athiest advert.

I support the work of the Guide Dogs foundation, but have not yet contributed financially to that cause. I don't think I've even promoted the foundation. However this in no way implies that I am therefore closed-minded to guide dogs, or that I believe that they are wrong...

What are you saying? Are you saying that there's a price-tag attached to a belief? If so, how much must I contribute financially to the atheist bus campaign for me to become a "true libertarian"?

Well yes I am Andy. Shame on you for not contributing to guide dogs, forget the stop family planning rubbish and support the living. I wonder how you and Lydia honestly justify yourselves. Go get a real education called life and join the masses. Tell me Andy how do you feel about people who defraud the state. What do you think of people who take benefits and grants from the government that perhaps they are not entitled to?
