RU 486

RU 486

Press release
Society for the Protection of the Unborn Child, Christchurch

Dear Sir,

Family Planning's link to the recent application for government approval to use the French abortion pill in New Zealand is now exposed.

The application was made to Medsafe, by Dr Margaret Sparrow, on behalf of Istar Ltd, in June this year. The Registrar of Companies records reveal that this firm was registered in 1999 with five directors two of whom have strong associations with Family Planning.

Dr Margaret Sparrow, previously the medical director at the Parkview abortion clinic in Wellington, is employed by Family Planning and was formerly a national vice president.

Dr Dianna Edwards, medical director and an abortionist at Lyndhurst abortion clinic, also works for family planning and was formerly an executive member of that organization.

Dr Sparrow when interviewed by the Sunday Star Times regarding the application said. "We are not really wanting any publicity,' which explains why Family Planning have been so uncharacteristically silent on this issue.

It was Family Planning that brought Professor Emile Baulieu, the developer of RU 486, to New Zealand in 1990 to promote this lethal drug.

Since then Family Planning has been the leading advocate for the use of RU 486 in New Zealand. RU 486 kills babies and is a serious threat to the health of women and their future children.

Why does Family Planning, which is the biggest abortion provider in this country, promote chemical warfare against the unborn?

The Minister of Health should act in the best interests of women and generations yet conceived by withholding approval to use RU 486 in New Zealand.

Does the Labour Alliance government want the shameful distinction of being the first government in the history of New Zealand to authorize the use of a drug to kill another human being?

Gordon Campbell: On Tourism’s Endless Sense Of Grievance

Sad that a once in a century pandemic should have come along before the government had a clearly thought out plan for rescuing all the firms and saving all the jobs in the tourism sector. Sad that the government now looks like it was making up the criteria for support as it went along. But guess what? To some extent, they were. Possibly because in the modern era, a pandemic had never before caused international travel to evaporate almost overnight... More>>
