15 / 06 / 2009 - FPA and IPPF screen abortion propaganda film in Belfast
Today (15 June) International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) and the Northern Ireland Family Planning Association (fpaNI) screen a propaganda film on abortion law in Northern Ireland.
The film is entitled "Discrimination and Denial"
This is actually a very appropriate title because abortion discriminates against unborn children by denying them their right to life.
The fpaNI - a member of IPPF - has long been campaigning for abortion-on-demand to be legalised in Northern Ireland. This film is their latest stunt but they are fighting a losing battle. The figures for women travelling outside of Northern Ireland for abortions have decreased again this year.
The fpaNI are claiming that the Assembly is in a state of denial about abortion and does not listen to the people of Northern Ireland. However, it is in fact the fpaNI who are in a state of denial about abortion. They deny that abortion kills babies and hurts women.
The Assembly does listen to the people of Northern Ireland. In October 2007, the Assembly accepted 120,000 petitions against abortion from the people of Northern Ireland, before passing a motion opposing any attempt to make abortion available in Northern Ireland.
A new leaflet, ‘Abortion rights are human rights’ is also being launched at the screening event.
The right to life is the most fundamental of all human rights. Abortion is not a ‘right’ and there is no internationally binding human rights treaty in the world that says abortion is a ‘human right’. In contrast, legal protection for unborn children is affirmed in both the Declaration Of The Rights Of The Child 1959 and the Convention On The Rights Of The Child 1990. These Treaties both state that the child needs special safeguards, care, and legal protection before birth.
The fpaNI are once again trotting out the lie that two thirds of people in Northern Ireland support abortion. The fpa are basing this figure on the results of their own survey which found 428 people - two thirds of the 690 people they questioned - supported abortion. This can hardly be described as ‘two thirds of the people of Northern Ireland’.
The people of Northern Ireland must also be made aware that the founder of International Planned Parenthood Federation - Margaret Sanger -was an extreme racist and nazi sympathiser, who thought the world would be a better place without black people, poor people and anyone else she considered to be a ‘human weed.’ The IPPF are now the largest abortion provider in the world - making billions of dollars from their gruesome industry. The last thing Northern Ireland needs is for the IPPF to set up their abortion chambers here.
