The debate in Southland has been raging over the opening of the new abortion “services” preformed at the hospital.
Tonight, Close Up featured Dr Norman McClean who represented the Southlanders for Life, and Alison McCullough from Abortion Law Reform Association of New Zealand. Southlanders for Life want to know which medical professionals are involved in the abortion “procedures” at the hospital. The question was asked “Should abortion clinic staff have the right to privacy?” On Close Up’s Facebook page a raging discussion is taking place as I write, with so many tired pro-abortion arguments written in an angry tone.
Should abortion clinic staff have the right to privacy? Personally I don’t think so. Patients have the right to know, and the option to choose a different practitioner if they don’t want someone to care for them that is also involved in the killing of innocent children.
But that is not really what this battle is about down in Southland. The real battle is about good and evil. It is about truth and lies. All under the guise of “women’s health”.
ALRANZ have been calling for reform of New Zealand’s abortion laws. I find myself agreeing – New Zealand’s abortion laws do need to be reformed. Just not in the way they are proposing. New Zealand’s abortion laws need to be reformed to the point where abortion is illegal in every instance. Then, society will be forced to care for all pregnant women and teenage girls who are facing an unexpected pregnancy. People would need to look beyond themselves to care for mother and baby. I am certain we would see less of the depressive and abusive behaviours that plague our country, not more as the pro-abortion camp likes to shout.
So I stand by the people in Southland who care enough about women and their preborn children to sacrifice their time and resources to promote life. May their efforts be successful.
I thought the Close Up question was silly so didn’t vote. In the general sense, yes staff have a right to privacy, but since they are employed in a public hospital then why shouldn’t everyone know who they are? What about the right of women to choose not to be cared for or entrust their unborn children to someone who is willing to destroy children in the womb?
Having just read Abby Johnson’s book, “unPlanned”, I think it should be required reading for those wishing to protest outside an abortion facility as she says what tactics further harden hearts and which ones have a positive impact. Close Up was annoyingly biased in presenting all prolife protestors as potential murderers.
