Police Arrival Times

Why should the police have to lose precious time notifying their arrival, or delay their arrival notification till some time after they have arrived? The other emergency services have press-button systems to report their arrival electronically. In any case surely the comms centre needs to know immediately that they have arrived safely. There is something strange about excusing the late average arrival time on that basis.

Mourning tsunami victims compared with mourning the victims of abortion

At the present rate of abortions, every 8.6 years the New Zealand government both approves the death of and funds the killing of 156,000 innocent New Zealand children.

If abortions cost $1000 each (a conservative estimate), the costs every 8 years would amount to $156,000,000 or $46,000,000 more than the government is sending to the Asian countries affected by the Tsunami.

In addition Helen Clark has announced a minute of silence to take place on Sunday, but there is not even 1 second of silence to mourn for the innocent New Zealanders killed while in their mother's womb.

It is about time New Zealanders demanded that the killing of the innocent stop, and a political leadership was raised up to institute a culture of life.

While a Tsunami and the death of 156,000 victims is likely to take place every 200 years, in the same time New Zealand governments wilfully send approximately 3,630,000 unborn New Zealand children to their deaths in state-funded human abattoirs.

The cost ! would amount to $3,630,000,000. Were there no abortions to take place over the next thirty years, there would be over half a million more New Zealanders alive and we would have an extra $500,000,000 to help in the event of another natural disaster.

When will our own MP Jill Pettis begin to speak out against the slaughter of the innocents?
