Petition asking the church to make a statement about the use of aborted babies in vaccines

Saturday, February 6th, 2021

Around the world there is an increasing push to remove the ability for people to decline vaccines for themselves or their dependents for religious reasons. Why? Because no churches have statements objecting to vaccines for any reason.12

However, there are valid reasons why people would object to vaccines—the foremost of which is the use of aborted babies in vaccines. If churches would make statements about the use of aborted babies in vaccines it would empower those who would decline vaccines to do so. It would also provide assistance in the fight against government mandated or coerced vaccination and even to appeal to private businesses to rethink their coercive policies.3

Please consider taking these actions.

A.      Print, fill out, sign and give the petition to the leadership of your local church. 

B.      Send the petition to all your Christian contacts in the world asking them to do the same.

The petition is designed to be signed by individual Christians anywhere in the world and given to their local church. It asks their church to: one, make a statement opposing the use of fetal cell lines in vaccines and mandatory or coerced vaccination and two, communicate this opposition with the congregation and with the appropriate politicians. 

The petition is designed to accomplish these things:

1.       Raise awareness of the issue of the use of fetal cell lines in vaccines. 

2.       Alert people so that they are ready to fight against mandatory/coerced vaccines. 

3.       Create a ground swell of churches making statements on this issue (and posting them on their websites) to empower people to fight against mandatory/coerced vaccination. 

4.       Raise an objection to mandatory/coerced vaccines with the state pre-emptively. 

These four things will create a good foundation for if/when further appeals need to be made to the state not to force or coerce vaccination.

Petition for religious or conscientious reasons – re vaccines

Friday, January 29th, 2021

In links below are petitions asking the church to make a statement about the use of aborted babies in vaccines.

In Australia we recently lost the ability to decline vaccines for religious reasons. We lost this ability because no churches in Australia had a statement objecting to vaccines for any reason.

The USA is going down this track too with five states so far removing the ability to object for religious reasons and Biden wanting that to apply across the board for Covid-19 vaccines.

Kiwiland is pretty good about not forcing vaccines, but if they follow Australia, they might lose this ability too.

The petitions below have been put together particularly for New Zealanders and Australians.

The Covid-19 vaccine rollout is due to start in February in Australia and many quarters are talking about the need for government and/or employers to make it mandatory. Some airlines have said you won’t be able to fly internationally with them unless you take the vaccine. These coercive measures for an experimental vaccine are out of line. There will be many who will want to decline the vaccine for religious or conscientious reasons. It is hoped that if lots of churches make a statement about the use of aborted babies in vaccines, that this will help people who want to decline to be vaccinated, to do so. At any rate, it is a step closer to winning back the ability to object for religious or conscientious reasons.

Please read the links below and if you agree, take these actions:

  1. Fill it out with the name of your church and your name, sign, date and give to the leadership of your church.
  2. Forward the petition to all your Christian contacts in Australia and New Zealand. Ask them to do the same.

The numbers in the body of these petitions are not hyperlinks. They are just blue numbers pointing to the footnotes!

Prolife NZ Tour 2011 – Creating a Prolife NZ

Monday, January 10th, 2011

Prolife NZ Tour 2011 – Creating a Prolife NZ

The 2011 Prolife NZ tour aims to throw light on the issue of abortion here in New Zealand. Over 18,000 abortions take place each year. Their goal is to increase people’s awareness about abortion, and to train the next generation of pro-lifers to speak out on this social injustice :)

This year they are delighted to introduce two incredible high profile pro-life leaders from the States…

Bryan Kemper runs a thought-provoking blog aimed primarily at youth

He is the founder of StandTrue Pro-Life and the Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity.

Bryan has spent years reaching out to youth and encouraging this generation to get involved, and now he has endeavored to continue that outreach with Stand True Ministries.

Stand True is an organization that asks of young people, “Will you stand?”

Bryan has certainly chosen to, and he can only hope and pray that others will too.

Jill Stanek blogs at, a must-read for all pro-lifers.

Jill has previously worked as a registered nurse in the Labour & Delivery Department at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois. She discovered not only were abortions being committed there, but babies were being aborted alive, and left to die without medical care.
When hospital leaders said that they would not stop, Jill went public and has become a national figure in the effort to protect both born and pre-born infants.

Jill has been quoted in the national media on television, on radio, in print, and by local and national legislators.

Jill is awesome. You’ll love her!

Abortion Supervisory Committee Report 2009

Friday, December 11th, 2009

Media Release

Abortion Supervisory Committee Report 2009

The Abortion Supervisory Committee’s [ASC] report was tabled in Parliament on 8th December. The Committee reported 17,940 abortions in New Zealand 2008.

This is a reduction of 440 on the 2007 year figure of 18,380. While encouraging, Right to Life reminds New Zealanders that each life is unique and irreplaceable. Hopefully one reason for the decrease is the increasing recognition in the community that abortion not only destroys innocent defenceless unborn children, it also harms the physical and mental health of women and their families.

Right to Life is concerned about the unlawful abortions authorised in 2008.

The statistics for 2008 reveal that 98% of abortions performed were authorised on the grounds of serious danger to the mental health of the mother. This statistic has been constant since 1977. Justice Miller’s judgement in the High Court in Wellington, (date) in the judicial review of the Abortion Supervisory Committee, supported the conclusion that many of these abortions are unlawful.

Justice Miller stated that “there is reason to doubt the lawfulness of many abortions authorised by certifying consultants. Indeed the Committee itself has stated that the law is being used more liberally than Parliament intended.”

“In my opinion, the statistics and the committee’s comments since the Court of Appeal made that observation, do give rise to powerful misgivings about the lawfulness of many abortions. They tend to confirm Dr Forster’s view that New Zealand has abortion on request” Dr Christine Forster was previously chairperson of the ASC from June 1993 to August 2001, a period of nearly eight years.

The Abortion Supervisory Committee’s response is tragic. They are seeking to provide even greater access to chemical abortion by supporting the wider use of the toxic chemical Mifegyne RU486. This use of RU486, a ‘human pesticide’, in a pill form imposes an incredible psychological trauma on women, often leaving the mother to cope with aborted body parts from their baby.

The report reveals that 140 disabled unborn children were killed in 2008 – how is this justified? It is deplorable that only the perfect are permitted to be born. A child does not forfeit its right to life because it has a disability.

Right to Life believes that many innocent healthy unborn children have been deprived of their life unlawfully; this is a grave injustice – a violation of their right to life. It also permits the exploitation and abandonment of women. This is the justice issue of our era.

Right to Life is gravely concerned at the increase in repeat abortions in 2008. Of the 17,940 abortions performed,

  • 11,312, (63%) of the total abortions were a woman’s first abortion.
  • 6628, (37%) were repeat abortions, an increase of 2% on 2007 figures
  • 4,469 women in 2008 were having their second abortion,
  • 1490 were having their third abortion,
  • 461 were having their fourth abortion,
  • 143 their fifth,
  • 40 their sixth and
  • 25 their seventh or more abortion.

These statistics are scandalous and indicate that abortion is being used as a back up for failed contraception. The abortion laws do not provide for failed contraception as grounds for abortion.

Right to Life asks why the Committee is not taking action to address this critical problem.

The report reveals that:

  • 8,041 women were using contraceptives at the time their child was conceived.

Of these women,

  • 4,898 were using condoms
  • 2,901 were using contraceptives.
  • These statistics show that contraceptives have a high failure rate. It is a tragedy that innocent unborn children are being killed in order to provide for another’s so called sexual freedom. The Committee suggested  in its report that because of New Zealand’s high abortion rate (in comparison with other countries) that we need more long acting contraceptives and that the government should consider reducing financial barriers to their use. If the Committee was serious about reducing our high abortion rate they would ask the government to:
  • promote abstinence before marriage
  • adoption in preference to terminating the lives of healthy unborn children
  • promote child/teen protection from sexual exploitation and sexualizing by the media and advertising agencies

The Committee reports that “Over the past year the ASC has become conscious that workforce issues will need to be addressed in coming years to ensure continuity of abortion services in future.” The ASC is aware that there are very few operating doctors in New Zealand under the age of 50. Right to Life commends those doctors who faithful to the Hippocratic traditions of their healing profession have the utmost respect for the right to life of every child from the moment of conception and refuse to have any part in the killing of innocent and defenceless unborn children. Right to Life is opposed to any efforts that the Abortion Supervisory Committee  might make to subvert the ethics of good doctors by encouraging them to become involved in the killing of unborn babies.

Right to Life believes that a nation that kills its own children does not have a future and earnestly requests that:

  • The government promote a culture of life by promoting adoption as a loving life affirming option.
  • Hold the Abortion Supervisory Committee accountable for “pseudo-legal” abortions in this country.

This is preferable to life destroying abortion which promotes a culture of death.

A workshop hosted by Voice for Life Kapiti in Paraparaumu,

1hr North of Wellington

Free Registration!
Lunch Provided – Donations Welcome

As a local pro-life group we have become increasingly convinced that whilst many of us are intuitively pro-life, we need to be better at articulating…

“why we believe what we believe”

In the abortion debate, if we are ever going to get better traction and claw back the lost ground, we will need to upskill.

Furthermore, we are conscious that the grass roots membership rarely comes together to learn, to inspire, and to network.
