Abortion

Was the NZ abortion law changed to meet a UN sustainable goal?

While the rest of the world’s governments are dealing with Covid-19, the NZ government pushed through the Abortion Amendment Act.  It’s an extreme abortion bill that there’s no public mandate for – you’ll see why in a minute.

It didn’t need to be changed – as the law stands, women can get abortions up to 20 weeks, and it’s easy to get in NZ – it’s pretty much ‘abortion on demand.’

The changes are horrific:

  • Abortion up to birth
  • No pain relief as the fetus is being dismembered
  • No life saving treatment for a baby born alive. Yes, infanticide is now legal.

Abortion NZ

I believe our abortion laws were liberalised in keeping with the demands of the UN.  It’s right here on their ‘Sustainable Developments Page,’ as part of Agenda 2030.  Population control is a UN development goal and Jacinda Adern wants to tick all the boxes she can while she’s in power.

In accordance with this, the NZ government stated they wanted to “remove abortion from the Crimes Act,” so I read the Act, and I found that abortion is only a crime when it’s procured illegally, as in a backstreet abortion.  (Section 183 – 187A of the Criminal Act for procurement.)

Currently, this law stands to protect NZ women from unregistered abortionists – but the government has now removed this protection, because the tightening of the definition of ‘health practitioner’ to doctor, midwife or obstetric nurse was defeated in the second reading of the bill.

So now, it’s legal to go to an unregistered abortionist.  Is this fulfilling the requirement?  Will Jacinda get a big fat tick on her sustainable development report card from the UN for this?  If the UN was involved, was this a suitable goal for New Zealand?

A sane society would offer a choice to women.  Women could be sheltered, paid to give birth, and have the child adopted out – but because there’s no statutory definition of fetuses or embryos as “unborn children” within New Zealand law, the evil people in power have mandated it’s okay to rip a live human fetus apart or leave a baby to die in a bucket.

I never thought I’d see the day when a NZ government would hold human life in such contempt.

Calves have more protection.  On 1st June 2015, a new law came into effect stopping farmers from inducing cows and killing the calf who wouldn’t survive being born too early.  This practice was considered “inhumane and cruel” by the MP’s promoting the change.  Unborn calves are now protected from this.

Green party logic

Also, the Whanganui River, the river that flows through my old home town, has been made “a legal person.”  That philosophy fits right in with ‘Gaia,’ but having children does not.

The contempt extends to the NZ public.

The public outcry has been ignored by the government and media.  The protest marches were ignored.

Media

Also ignored were submissions; 90.6% of the submissions were ignored by the parliamentary select committee.  Demonstrations which filled the streets were ignored and under-reported.  When the public clapped in the public gallery after MP Agnes Loheni opposed the bill,  the speaker of the house threatened to have them removed.

“National MP Agnes Loheni is staunchly against the bill and was quick to point out 91.6 percent of the submissions opposed the bill.  She said she was not scaremongering because there was plenty to be alarmed about, and diminishing the life of an unborn baby to the point they were no longer called babies meant humanity had been lost.

“Late-term surgical abortions are nothing short of barbaric,” she said.  “There is nothing kind in it – a truly progressive society protects the rights of all its members down to the smallest and most vulnerable, the unborn child.”

There was huge applause from the public gallery following her speech – prompting Speaker Trevor Mallard to threaten removal if it happened again.”

In desperation, another demonstration against the Abortion Legislation Bill was held at Parliament at the same time as the bill’s second reading, and this time it used graphic visual images.

“Out of respect for post-abortive woman, the pro-life movement has generally resisted using graphic visual photos of aborted babies in public places,” organiser Gina Sunderland said.

”But that’s all about to change.”

But Ardern, who supports the bill, said she was personally against the use of such images.

Jacinda and ger baby Neve. What would her baby’s name have been if she’d been terminated – “Never?”

“I just think that’s not a way to share the legitimate views that other people will have,” Ardern said.

Leighton Baker of New Conservative stated that when Government ministers proclaim discomfort at being shown images of what they seek to legitimise, it proves that they are disconnected from reality and society.

There certainly is a disconnect.

Here’s a handy summary of the amendments to the abortion bill that were all defeated on the second reading.  They show the real agenda of the pro-abortion lot.   Key amendments voted on were:
* requirement for abortion procedures post-20 week to ensure that fetus does not feel pain (as per the Animal Welfare Act which requires vets to ensure that animals don’t feel pain) – DEFEATED
* tightening of definition of ‘health practitioner’ to doctor, midwife or obstetric nurse (to avoid unsafe abortions) – DEFEATED
* abortions post-20 weeks only for extreme circumstances – DEFEATED
* keeping conscientious objection standards the same as they currently are (the bill currently weakens the protections) – DEFEATED
* restricting employment discrimination on grounds of conscience – DEFEATED
* cultural considerations to be considered consistent with the Treaty of Waitangi (woman’s wellbeing protected by recognising her whakapapa and the whanaungatanga responsibilities of her family, whanau, hapu, iwi, and family group) – DEFEATED
* annual reporting of abortion statistics (bill only requires reporting for 18 months after passing!) – DEFEATED

Also, 80 New Zealand MPs voted down the amendment of National MP Simon O’Connor which clarified that a qualified health practitioner who performed an abortion that results in the birth of a child after an attempted abortion has a duty to provide the child with appropriate medical care and treatment, no different than the duty owed to provide medical care and treatment to any other child born.  It was DEFEATED.

How’s this for gender-bending crap?  Other proposed amendments, in Green MP Jan Logie’s name, would scrap the 20-week legal test altogether or replace “woman” in the bill with “pregnant woman or other pregnant person.”  The 20 week limit was scrapped but they decided not to include a “pregnant man” in the definition.

Downs – but not out

Right now, our government is amending our Abortion laws, I thought they were liberal enough but apparently not.

“I’m proposing it comes out of the Crimes Act,” Jacinda Adern explained to the disability community.

It sounds very high-minded and caring.  Actually Jacinda’s being disingenuous about abortion being in the Crimes act.   I’ll go even further and say dishonest.  The only thing mentioned in the Crimes Act about abortion is in terms of getting a backstreet abortion.  That’s the only part of it that’s a crime!  I’d really like her to explain that one to the NZ public.

Currently, there is a 20-week time limit for abortions in New Zealand law.

“We have time periods already set out in law, I’m not proposing changes to that,” Jacinda reassured the disability community.”

Jacinda aand abortion

Really?

She must have changed her mind and forgot to tell the community.  The proposed legislation will see this time limit removed and abortion will be available up until birth, with the approval of a single registered health practitioner.

“In the jurisdictions that have a similar clause, this has in practice allowed for abortion for disabilities including Down syndrome right up to birth.”

There are many New Zealanders who are pro-life going by the March for Life in 2019, they’ve filled the streets but they’re not being listened to.

I don’t want to sit as judge and jury on any parent who has conceived a disabled child.  It’s their choice, it’s already up to them what they want to do.  My beef is the prime minister changing the laws while lying to the NZ public and the disability community.

When we were setting up our business, I worked as a caregiver for intellectually disabled people on the weekends.  They were the nicest group of people I’ve ever worked with – kind, childlike, very positive people.  There wasn’t any gossip or nastiness.  It was nice, a complete contrast to some of the toxic work places I’ve endured.

It is an obstacle having a disability, but it doesn’t have to be the end of the world.  I’ve noticed that intellectually disabled people have a very high EQ – emotional intelligence. It’s as if nature wants to compensate.

It’s inspirational when the disabled and their family can succeed against all the odds.  Here’s some success stories:

Campaign to change “discriminatory” abortion law around Down’s syndrome.

“You need to see the person behind the extra chromosome, see their inner beauty.” 

This mother and daughter are campaigning to change the laws around abortions of pregnancies where the foetus has Down’s syndrome. At the moment women are allowed to terminate the pregnancy right up until the moment of birth, even though the standard abortion limit is at just 24 weeks. Heidi and Liz say this is “deeply offensive” and a form of discrimination towards those born with non-fatal disabilities.

Amazing Image of Unborn Baby at 18 Weeks is Called the Photograph of the Century
“The celebrated photograph was taken by Swedish photojournalist Lennart Nilsson and published in the April 1965 edition of Life under the title “Drama of Life Before Birth.” That issue became the “fastest-selling copy” of the magazine in the history of its publication, according to the report.

In full colour and crystal clear detail, the picture showed a foetus in its amniotic sac, with its umbilical cord winding off to the placenta. The unborn child, floating in a seemingly cosmic backdrop, appears vulnerable yet serene. Its eyes are closed and its tiny, perfectly formed fists are clutched to its chest,” the report described.”

Apostate churches want action on ‘climate change’ while Australia burns

Australia has suffered a devastating early bush fire season with fires across several states burning through hundreds of thousands of hectares.  New South Wales has been the most severely hit, with more than 1.65m hectares razed, an area significantly larger than suburban Sydney.

AustraliaMap-750x434

Of course the fires have been blamed on climate change.  Are the Australian fires unprecedented?  History would say otherwise.  Australia has always had devastating bush fires.

Hear the voice of a volunteer fire fighter:

“It is high time bureaucrats and politicians stopped blaming climate change for a bushfire crisis that is very much of their own making and is putting lives at risk.”

On Christmas Eve, former Australian leader Barnaby Joyce posted a word about the drought and Australian Bushfires on Twitter – which the media called ‘bizarre,’ but I agree with him.

“You don’t need to convince me the climate’s not changing – the climate’s always changing.  My problem’s always been how a new tax is going to change it back!”

He mentioned a higher authority at work, beyond our comprehension.  “Unless we understand that’s got to be respected, then we’re just fools – we’re going to get nailed.” 

I wondered what the Australian Churches are saying about that.  It appears they’ve used their Christmas messages to preach about “climate change,” and put pressure on their prime minister to “take action.”   Even the media have called that disgusting.

They’re no longer preaching about sin and morality!

There’s a Bible proverb that says “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.  Proverbs 14:34

Laws based on the ten commandments protect a nation spiritually.  Have there been any laws made in Australia recently that might remove God’s hand of protection from the land?  In 2017 Australia changed the marriage covenant by bringing in same-sex marriage and now the abortion laws have been decriminalised.  New South Wales was the last state to do it, changing it’s abortion law on September 26th, 2019.   The bush fires broke out soon after in early October.

Is there a link between sin and disaster?  I’m not hearing it from the churches in Australia.

New Zealand is next to decriminalise it’s abortion law in line with the demands of the United Nations SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals.)  Will it be NZ’s turn to “get nailed?” God doesn’t bring disaster or delight in it, the Bible states what’s needed to heal the land in 2 Chronicles 7:13-14.

It’s up to you, Australian believers to stand in the gap for your land.  Prayer changes things.  I know you’re out there and we’re with you.
