A woman’s Right To Choose – A Cruel Deception

It is a monstrous lie that has contributed to pain and suffering, for millions of women throughout the world and to the killing of innocent and defenceless unborn children. Never before in the history of mankind has such a blatant lie promoted by Family Planning and the International Planned Parenthood Federation in its war against women, its promotion of a culture of death, been the cause of such misery and destruction.

The slogan “a woman’s right to choose” was invented in 1969 by Dr Bernard Nathanson, a founder of the National Association for Repeal of Abortion Laws. He later had a conversion and actively defended the right to life of the unborn when he saw on an ultra sound screen an unborn child with its mouth open in a silent scream, struggling to stay alive in the midst of an abortion. Dr Nathanson later said that he always knew it was a lie. We knew it was not true, they knew it was not true and now society at large knows that it is not true. It is a monstrous lie.

Every human being supports the right to choose. Each day we choose what we are going to wear, what we will eat and where we shall go. These are morally neutral actions. What then specifically is the pro-death movement trying to hide under the disarming slogan, “a woman’s right to choose”. It is none other than a right to kill another human being, not one who is able to defend itself from attack but the weakest and most defenceless member of the human family, an unborn child who is a unique and unrepeatable miracle of the Creator. The destruction of God’s precious infants will bring down the wrath of God on society. In the biblical book, Deuteronomy it says, “I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life that your children may live.” As a society, we must do all we can to help women choose life for their children.

Family Planning and the pro-death movement are aware that the slogan “a woman’s right to choose” is not resonating with the public, they are now promoting another great lie in the cry for “reproductive Justice”. It is appalling that they claim that the killing of a defenceless child in the womb is necessary to achieve justice. Who will protect women from the lies of Family Planning and its war on women?

A woman has an absolute right not to get pregnant but when she is pregnant she does not have the right to kill her child in the womb. The anti-life movement claims that a pregnant woman has a right to decide whether she wants to be a mother. When a woman is pregnant she is already a mother, her choice then is a live baby or a dead baby. A woman who chooses not to have a child should exercise her right by living a chaste life and confining sexual intercourse to marriage.

The pro-death movement is hypocritical, it is solely concentrated on the perceived right to kill an unborn child. They are strangely silent on a right of women to choose life for their baby with parenting or placing the child for adoption. They attack the pro-life movement calling it the anti-choice movement. This is another great lie, the pro-life movement fully supports a women’s right to choose life for her baby or to place it for adoption and we will never support the killing of the child in an effort to solve a socio -economic problem. The pro-life movement provides compassionate, unconditional love with practical help for women with an unplanned pregnancy. The pro-death movement is not prepared to provide any love or practical help to these women.

Family Planning is at the forefront of promoting a culture of death in New Zealand with its comprehensive sex education in schools. It has seduced our youth into believing that sex is for recreation and that they have a right to be sexually active, when they want to and with whoever they wish to. The result is an appalling rate of teenage pregnancy, abortions and STIs. Families should protect their children by advocating for the defunding of the Family Planning Association that receives more than $12 million each year and by keeping Family Planning out of our schools. The government needs to stop listening to Family Planning and listen to parents.

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
