Last month, New Zealand passed one of the most broad-based abortion laws in the country.
The bill was quickly passed by a 68 to 51 vote a margin after three readings in the Parliament.
According to RightoLife.org, New Zealand will have one of the most extreme abortion laws on the planet.
It noted the following provisions in the law:
- Abortion will now be available on-demand, for any reason, up to birth
- Sex-selective abortion will be legalised
- The current 20 week limit for disability-selective abortion will be scrapped and abortion will be available up to birth for disabilities including cleft lip, club foot and Down syndrome
- There will be no requirement that a doctor must be involved with providing an abortion
- There will be no legal requirement that babies born alive after a ‘failed’ abortion are given medical support
- There will be no legal requirement that pain relief be given to babies being aborted between 20 weeks and birth
- There will be no legal restrictions on controversial methods of abortion such as intact dilation and extraction abortions (also knows as partial-birth abortions)
According to polls in New Zealand, Kiwis strongly opposed the law. Curiously, women were in strong opposition to abortion and only 2 percent of women support abortion on-demand up to birth. Additionally, 93 percent of women oppose sex-selective abortion being legal and 94 percent of women support the current legal standards that abortion providers and premises are subject to.
Due to the low public support for changing abortion laws, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s government took advantage of the Wuhan virus pandemic to rush this legislation through while everyone’s attention was focused on the virus.
The pro-abortion legislation received considerable backlash from people in the disabled community. Over 1,200 people with Down syndrome and their families urged Ardern to keep her promise to not introduce “abortion up to birth for Down syndrome.”
The New Zealand-based pro-life organization Voice for Life made the following comments about the legislation:
“In passing Labour’s extreme abortion Bill our MPs have ushered in a new law that will liberalise abortion up to birth, allow for sex-selective abortions, and remove current freedom of conscience rights from New Zealand medical professionals.
Over the last few Parliamentary sessions our MPs had the opportunity to pass amendments that would have corrected some of the worst extremes of this Bill but instead they chose to reject such moderate measures…
Our Parliament has a duty of care to consider the wellbeing and protection of all New Zealanders including the vulnerable.
Tonight they failed in that basic duty of care by passing this extreme Bill, but the hundreds of thousands of voters who opposed this Bill will not forget this failure when it is time to vote in the General Election in a few short months.”
Under New Zealand’s current law, abortion is allowed after 20 weeks, albeit with strong restrictions. In these cases, abortion is allowed only in cases when it is “necessary to save the life of the woman or girl or to prevent serious permanent injury to her physical or mental health.”
New Zealand is decisively turning leftward on issues such as civilian disarmament, which BLP previously covered.
With it legalizing radical abortion laws, New Zealand is further cementing its descent into leftward politics.
WTF: Border Wall Construction Crew is Busted for Smuggling from Mexico in Texas
According to a report form Breitbart News, Border Patrol agents tasked with patrolling the Rio Grande City Station spotted a pickup truck close to Rio Grande in Fronton on July 20, 2020.
The agents witnessed the vehicle parking close to a new wall construction site. A number of individuals were spotted putting items onto the back of the truck and then driving off toward Highway 83.
Then, the vehicle turned east and started heading toward Roma, Texas. The agents eventually carried out a traffic stop on a yellow and black Ford F-250.
The suspect did not comply with the stop and started fleeing on foot south on Lincoln Avenue and headed towards the border. Jaeson Jones of Breitbart noted that this “common tactic is known as a ‘bailout.’”
Agents saw the driver dive right into the Rio Grande and swim his way back into Mexico. Focusing their attention back at the F-250, agents arrested five people who were seen loading the truck. Law enforcement sources reported that these individuals were in the U.S. illegally.
The vehicle was allegedly registered to CMF Leasing in Fort Worth, Texas. There were decals on the truck that promoted Southwest Valley Constructors (SWVC), a firm that is currently contracted to build a border wall system.
On top of that, the investigation revealed that the driver was identified as a resident of Roma who was by employed SWVC, according to Border Patrol agents account of the incident.
Law enforcement sources informed Breitbart Texas that the driver has a prior history of smuggling activity.
On May 28, 2019, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) partnered with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to award a contract to construct about three miles of new bollard wall system on federally lands situated within the Rio Grande Valley Sector.
Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. received a contract for $42,860,000. In addition, Kiewit has an office located at the same address in Fort Worth where the F-250 is registered at.
The road to securing America’s border will not be easy.
America is dealing with a failed state in Mexico, so there will be plenty of bad actors looking to exploit America’s flawed border policies and undermine its sovereignty.
Thankfully, the U.S. has a presidential administration that is quickly working to tackle border security.
