New Year Honour For Leading Abortion Facilitator

Scandal - New Year Honour For Leading Abortion Facilitator,Sue Bagshaw

Dr Sue Bagshaw, clinical director of the New Zealand Family Planning Association (NZFPA) has been honoured in the New Year honours. Dr Bagshaw has been made a companion of the New Zealand Order of merit, for services to the youth health.

In honouring Dr Bagshaw the government is in fact honouring the NZFPA. In view of the damage done in the community by the FPA , such an honour is scandalous and outrageous and a government endorsement of the culture of death.

The NZFPA is opposed to legal protection of the unborn child and believes that it is a woman's right to choose to have her child killed before birth.

The NZFPA is the largest abortion referral agency in New Zealand, it encourages girls under the age of 16 to have an abortion without the knowledge or consent of parents.

The Association also supprts those under the age of 16 being provided with contraceptives without the knowledge or consent of parents. It also promotes promiscuity and sex outside of marriage with their failed programme of so called "safe sex" with condoms etc.

We should not forget that it was Dr Gill Greer, executive director of the NZFPA who publicly stated " It was exciting to see that 70% of young women had used condoms by the age of 20".

The Association's promotion of women's rights is a sham. The NZFPA supports China's one child policy with compulsory abortions and sterilisations.

Today we live in an age when the works of darkness are applauded as virtue and honoured.

The NZFPA is a great threat to the New Zealand family and the unborn child and also to our New Zealand youth. The Association should be identified as part of the culture of death.
