RU486-Chemical Warfare On Unborn Children
It is frightening to consider that there is a direct link between the pharmaceutical giant IG Fabin that produced ZYKLON B gas used to murder millions of Jews in concentration camps and Roussal Uclaf the developers of RU486. Now RU486 is to be used in chemical warefare against innocent unborn children in New Zealand.
Right to Life is therefore disappointed that the Minister of Health, Annette King, has given approval for the distribution and use of the French abortion pill RU486. The Minister has said... "I have approved RU486 because it is a safe and sound medication".... The Minister is wrong on both counts- RU486 is neither safe nor is it a medication. Can the killing of an innocent unborn child be considered a "medication". The sole purpose of this drug is to destroy by starvation an innocent and helpless human being in its mother's womb.
The confirmed side effects noted include nausea,headache,dizziness,diarrhea and sometimes profuse bleeding. In 1991 a woman in France died from a RU486/prostagladin abortion. The long term effect of RU486 on future children is unknown. The drug has been found on the hair follicles in women's ovaries.
The Minister has confirmed that she has the statutory authority to decline the application for RU486. This is a political decision that the Labour-Alliance Government must accept responsibility for. The Minister has claimed that New Zealand women wanted RU486. Contrary to her claim the Minister advised this Society that she had not received a submission from any organisation supporting approval for RU 486-so where are the women's organisations supporting RU486? It is not the women of New Zealand who want RU486 but the doctors in the abortion industry who are tired of soul destroying surgical abortions.
The application for authority to distribute RU486 was made by Istar Ltd. The company has five shareholders all of whom are directors and all have been involved with the provision of surgical abortions. Edouard Sakiz, former Chairman of Roussel Uclaf, the drug company that developed RU486 said " RU486 is not east to use, in fact, it is much more complex to use than the technique of vacuum extraction ...A women who wants to end her pregnancy has live with her abortion for at least a week using this technique. It is an appalling psychological ordeal".
In the interests of New Zealand women and generations yet to come we strongly urge the Minister of Health to change her decision.
