Media Release from Right to Life
Family Planning in a recent media release, have declared war on women in New Zealand. In September 2012, the Association announced in a media release that they were, together with the Abortion Law Reform Association of New Zealand and the Women’s Health Action Trust embarking on a national campaign to have abortion decriminalised in New Zealand. The NZFPA media release stated, “that the time has come to have abortion removed from the Crimes Act 1961 and managed as a health matter.”
In 2009 the NZFPA stated in a media release that they were working within the law and “were not seeking to change it.” The NZFPA have now revealed their true intentions of ignoring the rights of unborn children and making it no longer a crime to kill an innocent and defenceless child in the womb. This position entails rejecting the recommendations of the Royal Commission on Contraception Sterilisation and Abortion that found that human life began at conception and that the unborn child as the weakest and most defenceless member of the human family deserved respect and legal protection. The NZFPA by rejecting the findings of the Royal Commission have set themselves up as the enemy of women and their precious unborn. Their stance is also an affront to Parliament which accepted in 1977 the recommendations of the Royal Commission.
The government should now cease funding the New Zealand Family Planning Association [NZFPA], a threat to women and their unborn. The Association is also the biggest abortion referral agency in New Zealand. The Association in 2009 received more than $11 million in government funding.
Family Planning should be seen as a threat to our children and to the family. Family Planning continue to seduce our children and undermine parental responsibility. It is appalling that the NZFPA should continue to be funded by the government.
The proposed national campaign would entail considerable lobbying of Members of Parliament and activating the community to support the campaign. The proposed change in the law would entail removing legal protection for the right to life of unborn children, the weakest and most defenceless members of the human family. It would also expose vulnerable women with an unplanned pregnancy to increased coercion, exploitation and abandonment by the father of the child.
The Association is the biggest abortion referral agency in New Zealand. They previously sought a licence for their Hamilton clinic to perform medical abortions. It was their stated objective to turn all their 30 clinics in New Zealand into abortion clinics for the killing of defenceless and helpless unborn children. The Association made a submission to the select committee dealing with the Care of Children Bill. The Association supported girls under the age of 16 having an abortion without the parents knowledge or consent. The Association regularly smuggles girls out of school to have an abortion without the knowledge of parents.
The Association degrades our sexuality by promoting promiscuity and sexual perversions such as masturbation, oral sex and anal sex. The Association shamelessly sells sex toys, vibrators and oral dams. All of this information is freely available on Family Planning’s website. It is time that New Zealand woke up to the damage that the tax payer funded Family Planning is doing to our community.
The philosophy of Family Planning is alien to a culture of life. At the Association’s Conference in May, 1979 the following policy was adopted;
“That the 19 doctors meeting as the Medical Advisory Committee of the NZPA recognise that the provision of abortion services is an important back-up measure in a comprehensive family planning programme.” Authorising abortions as a backup for failed contraception is unlawful.
The government should follow the good example of the United States Congress and State Legislatures who are increasingly aware of the damage inflicted on society by Planned Parenthood, the American equivalent of the NZFPA. There are now nine states that have defunded Planned Parenthood, there are many other states in the process of defunding Planned Parenthood.The latest example is the Texas Senate, which has defunded Texas Planned Parenthood by withdrawing funding of $64 million.
The NZFPA is part of the sex education lobby that is systematically undermining traditional morality and is aggressively promoting an ideology of lustful sexual licence while pretending to be concerned only with the health and safety of young people. As part of their subversive agenda, the Association has produced “a sexual and reproductive health guide for same sex attracted women” titled “Keeping it Safe” The guide is amoral, and promotes unnatural and degrading sexual practices that denigrate the dignity of women, our young women deserve better.
It is of concern that the guide is funded by the Ministry of Health. It may then be assumed that the Ministry approves of the contents of the guide and endorses the destructive agenda of the NZFPA. The task of the Ministry is to promote the health and wellbeing of the community, how then can the Ministry justify the investment of taxpayer funds to promote a lifestyle that is both immoral and a threat to the health of young women?
The NZFPA and Planned Parenthood are affiliates of the International Planned Parenthood Federation that supports China’s one child family policy with forced abortions and sterilisations which are a violation of human rights. It should come as no surprise as the founder of Planned Parenthood was the infamous Margaret Sanger, who was a racist and a eugenist. She stated that, “Our objective is unlimited sexual gratification without the burden of children.” and “the most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infants is to kill it.”
Right to Life earnestly requests that in the interest of the health and the wellbeing of the community, the government cease funding the NZFPA which promotes a culture of death.
