Government Orders Pharmacists To Be - Abortion Providers!

Right to Life believes that the community should be outraged that the noble profession of pharmacy has been exploited by the government to accept that it has a responsibility to dispense lethal drugs to kill unborn children, the weakest and most defenceless members of the human family. If today a pharmacist is prepared to kill the unborn on the orders of the government, be warned that tomorrow a pharmacist may be ordered by the government to dispense lethal drugs to kill you!

The government of Chris Hipkins is the first government in the history of New Zealand that has ordered pharmacists to co-operate in the killing of the unborn.

Right to Life is disappointed that the New Zealand Pharmaceutical Society fully supports its members becoming abortion providers. There are more than 900 registered pharmacies in New Zealand and over 4,000 registered pharmacists.

Every one of these pharmacists on the orders of the government has become an abortion provider. The Society has betrayed its members and the community it is pledged to serve.

Each pharmacist since the 1st November 2022 is legally empowered to dispense the lethal drugs Mifepristone and Misoprostol to kill an unborn child in its first 10 weeks of life.

Right to Life believes that the NZ Pharmacy Council, by accepting that pharmacists have a legal responsibility to dispense these lethal drugs, is in breach of its own code of ethics not to dispense drugs that will harm or kill their patients.

The NZ Pharmaceutical Society have developed a training course with five modules to train pharmacists in prescribing these lethal drugs designed to kill unborn children.

Right to Life believes that the NZ Pharmaceutical Society has betrayed its members and its unborn patients by co-operating in the killing of the unborn. The Society in its training programme has reminded its members that while they have a right on conscience grounds to refuse to dispense these drugs, they have a professional duty to ensure that they have the prescription dispensed by another pharmacist who is prepared to co-operate in the killing of the child.

Right to Life protests that this is not a morally acceptable protection of conscience rights. This is a legal charade, that pretends to respect conscience but requires that, in conflict with your conscience, you find a pharmacist who is prepared to kill the child.

Right to Life encourages the community to patronise only pharmacies that refuse to dispense lethal drugs to kill the unborn.
