Family Planning Association – Death Peddlers

5 July 2013

Media Release

Family Planning Association – Death Peddlers

The Family Planning Association continues to seduce our youth and wage war against women, by its promotion of contraception ,sterilisation and abortion. In God’s plan for procreation women’s fertility is a cause of celebration, not a call for sterilisation. Pregnancy is not a disease and unborn children are not invaders and the enemy to be destroyed.

Statistics New Zealand released the abortion statistics for 2012. The total of abortions was 14,745 down from 15,863 in 2011.This is the lowest number since 1995 when there was 13,652.

Right to Life challenges Family Planning chief executive, Jackie Edmund’s claim that abortion rates are falling worldwide as a result of the increasing availability of long acting reversible contraception such as Jadelle which is a levonorgestrel ( LNG) rod implant that sterilises a women for up to five years. Jadell has been funded by the New Zealand government since 2010. Family Planning staff in the last financial year sterilised 4,000 women by implanting Jadelle rods into women. It is believed that there are 20,000 women in New Zealand with Jadelle implants. The Association is doing women a grave disservice by encouraging them to have Jadelle rods inserted. Family Planning’s actions are not the solution but part of the problem.

Human life begins at conception and every human being is a unique and unrepeatable miracle of God’s loving creation, deserving of our respect and protection. The Jadelle implant has a tertiary action of preventing a newly conceived tiny human being from implanting in its mother’s womb. Research reveals that a woman with a Jadell implant may have two chemical abortions each year. Family Planning are asking the community to accept the destruction of an estimated 40,000 human beings in the womb each year in preference to having them killed in a hospital or clinic by medical or surgical abortions. Every life is precious whether it is only several days old or 20 weeks old. Every abortion is violence against women and their unborn. These implants are a denial of the right to life of the innocent and most defenceless members of the human family.

Family Planning claim that Jadelle is largely responsible for the reduction of abortions in 2012, this claim is challeged. It may be assumed that prior to having Jadelle implanted the women were on other contraception. Statistics New Zealand have provided statistics on the proportion of known pregnancies ending in an abortion. In 2012 the abortion ratio was 193 abortions per 1,000 known pregnancies, compared with 204 in 2011. The 2012 ratio is the lowest recorded since 1995 when it was 191 per 1,000. Known pregnancies include live births, stillbirths and induced abortions combined.

These statistics reveal that the major reason for the decline in the abortion total is that more women chose life for their baby in 2012. Right to Life believes that this is due to:

· A growing realisation that abortion is violence against women and that it damages a woman’s health.

· An increasing understanding through ultrasound of the humanity of the unborn and the truth that every child is a unique an unrepeatable miracle of God’s creation.

Why is Family Planning encouraging women to fill their bodies with dangerous foreign objects which have serious health consequences?

The Jadell implant is a violent assault on women’s fertility, it is carcinogenic and increases the risk of cancer, causes liver dysfunction, thrombosis, high blood pressure, nausea, headaches and weight gain. Jadell also does not protect a woman from sexually transmitted diseases or from AIDS.

The solution to our appalling abortion statistics is not more contraception but abstinence before marriage and faithfulness within marriage. Family Planning promotes a culture of death and is doing great damage to our community. It is a great injustice that the government continues to support and fund the agenda of Family Planning.

Gordon Campbell: The PM’s Hair-Pulling Power Trip

There have been striking differences between (a) the account of the waitress involved in the hair-pulling incidents, and (b) the account being given by Prime Minister John Key. The version by the waitress is available here and is recommended to anyone yet to read it. By her account, there were multiple instances of hair-pulling and these persisted and persisted long after she had made her annoyance clear to Key – who had also been advised by his wife, and by other café staff that the behavior was evidently not being welcomed.
