Stop the state killing of our Holy Innocents!

The murder of the holy innocents at Bethlehem two thousand years ago continues today in our own country. Right to Life asks how can the churches commemorate their grief on the 28th December at the murder of probably 20 holy innocents by King Herod at Bethlehem, yet remain silent at the continuing slaughter of holy innocent unborn children every day in New Zealand?

Every day in New Zealand an estimated 36 unborn children are taken to abortion facilities to be poisoned, sucked out of their mother’s wombs or violently dismembered. They too, like the Holy Innocents, are seen by our Herodian-like State as a threat to the ruler, their killing authorised and funded by the State.

Right to Life believes that our Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, who supports the killing of God’s precious infants as a health service, is unwittingly following the murderous example of King Herod.
