Why is the government funding and promoting the killing of our precious unborn children while doing nothing to promote their adoption?

There were 13,257 children killed in the womb in 2021, according to the latest statistics and only an estimated 20 non-family adoptions; why is this? This is a human tragedy.

From the beginning of civilisation, humankind has protected children by extending the loving hand of adoption and nurturing to its children in times of necessity. Why is this not happening today? In 2012 the Department of Social Development recorded a total of 21 non-family adoptions in New Zealand. In the same year there, were 14,745 children killed in the womb. In 1973 there were 2,000 children adopted by strangers, and 2,393 unmarried mothers kept their babies. The percentage of ex-nuptial births that resulted in non-family adoptions fell from 41% in 1965 to 31 % in 1972. In 1968 there were 2,617 non-family adoptions.

Each year in New Zealand, there are more than 13,000 children murdered in their mother’s wombs, each one of these children is a child that could be offered up for adoption. Adoption is a loving option, with the mother choosing life for her child.
