A true holocaust
Alfred Ngaro MP is applauded for his integrity and courage in daring to say the unspeakable, that “abortion is a holocaust in our nation.” Right to Life encourages other MPs to confront this abomination, and to speak up in defence of our nation’s voiceless unborn and their victimised and wounded mothers. Our women and their unborn deserve better than this abortion holocaust.
Right to Life also applauds new National MP Paulo Garcia for standing up for our unborn children in his inaugural speech in Parliament.
The dictionary declares that a holocaust is a ‘huge slaughter or destruction of life.’ If the violent dismembering and slaughter of more than 500,000 innocent and defenceless unborn children in New Zealand since 1978 is not a holocaust, then what is? The blood of those killed in this holocaust cries out to their Creator for justice.
It is a tragedy that the compelling objective of the Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, is to make permanent the abortion holocaust by removing the unborn from the protection of the Crimes Act and to make the killing of the innocent child in the womb “a reproductive choice for women.” It would then be no longer a crime to kill the child in the womb, but a health service and a human right for women for any reason, effectively up to birth.
The child would, in the words of Family Planning, be “the contents of the uterus and the products of conception.”
What compounds this holocaust is that it is authorised and funded by the state, with the silent acquiescence of the community. Our Labour-led government in its Wellbeing Budget for 2019 has continued to make special provision to provide funding for this holocaust, which is disguised as a core and essential health service with unlimited funding.
The government has no difficulty in castigating district health boards for over-spending in the provision of vital health services, but would never criticise them for money spent on funding this abortion holocaust.
This holocaust is destroying our nation. What future does a nation have that destroys its own children? The New Zealand abortion holocaust is part of the international abortion holocaust that destroys more than 56 million unborn children every year.
The Alabama State Senate, in passing a bill recently to ban abortion and protect the lives of its children before birth, explicitly and rightly compares, in the text of the bill, abortion to the holocaust, executions carried out under Stalin, and the Khmer Rouge regime. In fact the abortion holocaust exceeds by greater than an order of magnitude all these combined.

hands of a violent partner is not okay, but suffering at the whims of a political party is okay, then we believe that is hypocritical. All needless suffering is not okay.
Simon Bridges and Winston Peters need to demonstrate that their parties also consider needless suffering is not okay. We should not have to suffer another 18 months for relief, or indeed to stay alive. People are now saying they are choosing being illegally alive, with the possibility of incarceration, over being legally dead.
Cannabis needs to be re-legalised now.

violence, and work with people that perpetrate violence to prevent further harm. A further 350,000 people will be supported by Wha¯ngaia Nga¯ Pa¯ Harakeke and Whiria te Muka family harm prevention services in Gisborne, Counties Manukau . . . and Kaitaia in Northland.”
Does that say Whiria te Muka? Why, yes it does. Seems Carmel Sepuloni’s visit was not “a waste of carbon emissions” after all, but rather a socially beneficial use of airline transport.
Perhaps your editorials are, after all, ill-researched and biased anti-Labour-led government diatribes like Matt King’s all too regular columns.
Mock the word “wellbeing” all you like. It is reverberating throughout this nation. Why? Because budgets based on pure neoliberal economics have failed so many for so long. WALLY HICKS

Part-Ma¯ ori grievers like HerbertGraves should be thankful the Brits ‘banged’ into New Zealand at a time when a strong humanitarian movement, centred on the churches, influenced British colonial policy. The Colonial Secretary, Lord Normanby, genuinely tried to treat 19th century New Zealand inhabitants better than happened in earlier colonisations. GEOFF PARKER
