LifeSiteNews 28 May 2015A mother petitioned the New Zealand government this week to pass legislation that would ensure parents are notified of their teenage daughter’s pregnancy, prior to any decisions or referrals for abortion.The petition, signed by Hillary Kieft and six other people, was presented to Whanganui MP, Hon. Chester Borrows.Parliament is asked to pass legislation requiring a parent of a girl under 16 to be informed of her confirmed pregnancy before she is “referred for any resulting medical procedure, and that any consent sought for the medical procedure be fully informed as to procedure, possible repercussions, and after-effects.”Kieft, a mother of six, was devastated when she found out that her daughter had been taken during school hours for an abortion, at the age of 15, without her knowledge or consent.The abortion was only revealed to the family when her daughter attempted suicide, after a year of depression, self-hatred, anger, alcohol and substance abuse.“As a mother, how do you deal with that?” Kieft told participants at a Family First Forum in 2014. “Our daughter survived by the Grace of God, she survived. But life has never been the same.”While parents must sign consent forms for field trips, basic first aid care and dental treatment, when it comes to abortion, the Care of Children Act, 2004, gives girls of any age the ability to have the procedure without the knowledge or consent of her parents.https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/girl-attempted-suicide-after-school-got-her-abortion-behind-parents-back-noTaranaki mum fights for full disclosure from school assisted abortionsOne News 4 June 2015A Taranaki mother is working with her local MP to stop New Zealand schools from helping students hide a life-changing decision from their parents.About 50 times per year a Kiwi student is aided by their school to have an abortion without the parent’s knowledge. It is a secret that Hillary Kieft’s 15-year-old daughter and her school tried to keep.“Just one day my daughter didn’t come home on the bus,” Ms Kieft said.“Before I knew it a red car had come up my drive, my daughter was with a lady, who was a health nurse,” she said.“I pretty much said ‘well where have you been?’ And this health nurse sat down at my table and she said ‘I [have] taken your daughter for a counselling appointment’.”http://tvnz.co.nz/national-news/taranaki-mum-fights-full-disclosure-school-assisted-abortions-6330553Taranaki mum fights to to ban schoolgirls getting abortions without their parent’s knowledgeNZ Herald 4 June 2015 A petition to ban schoolgirls getting abortions without their parent’s knowledge has been launched.Taranaki mother Hillary Kieft said she launched the petition after her teenage daughter was secretly taken to another town for an abortion.Ms Kieft said the petition was based on something “no other parent” should have to experience.“One day in September 2009, our 15 year-old daughter did not come home from school on the bus. The health nurse had taken her to another town for an abortion,” she wrote.“Our daughter changed after that event and our life as a family was turned upside down.”“Society, the law and government agencies expect parents to take responsibilities for the behaviours of their children.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11459701‘You need parental consent for panadol but not an abortion? That’s freakin’ ludacris!’One News 4 June 2015Last night’s emotional Seven Sharp story revealing a Taranaki mother’s anguish at finding out her teenage daughter was assisted by a school health nurse when she had an abortion has been met with outrage by ONE News readers.Hillary Kieft’s 15-year-old daughter attempted suicide and will not be able to have babies after the “botched abortion” that her daughter’s school did not inform her about.Scores of readers expressed their opinions on the ONE News Facebook page, condemning the fact that New Zealand schools aren’t obligated to inform parents if their daughter goes through with an abortion.“This is so wrong, why should the schools have the right to do what they did, surely the school should be made to contact the parents,” Margaret Waterson wrote, summing up the views of the majority of readers.Charde Heremaia shared one of her high school experiences on the ONE News Facebook page: “When I was in high school a couple of years ago, I had to call my mum to get consent to be given a PANADOL for a headache.http://tvnz.co.nz/national-news/you-need-parental-consent-panadol-but-not-abortion-s-freakin-ludacris-6330965
Press Association Iain Henderson can come of Test-match age in Ireland’s World Cup opener against Canada in Cardiff, according to Les Kiss. Ulster lock Henderson has beaten Leinster’s Devin Toner to partner captain Paul O’Connell for Ireland’s first Pool D clash at the Millennium Stadium. Toner forged a formidable duo with O’Connell en route to Ireland’s two-straight RBS 6 Nations triumphs, but Henderson has long been earmarked for Test potency. The 23-year-old will win his 20th cap against Canada, but only his fifth Test start, and defence coach Kiss has backed the Craigavon native to realise his rich potential. “Iain has done very well and I don’t think it’s just in this off-season either, he’s come in over the last two years, and he’s been learning the ropes, not only through Paul O’Connell but also through Devin Toner,” said Kiss. “He’s learned a lot in that time. “It’s another step up for him, a big tournament and it will be exciting for him. But we’ve seen what he can deliver. “The potential’s there but if he’s got his mind on and his head right he can be a damaging player. “So he’ll have to bring that into the game in some form or other, whether that’s in the set-piece or in the loose. “But it’s a big opportunity for him.” Toner appeared for Friday’s captain’s run training session ready to take a full part, but was held back by the coaching staff, who felt he would benefit more from a rest after a heavy weights session earlier in the day. Powerful back-five forward Henderson remains as comfortable at blindside flanker as in the second row, and has admitted he feels ready to challenge for a regular starting berth in Joe Schmidt’s side. Second row totems O’Connell and Canada’s Jamie Cudmore will go toe-to-toe on Saturday in the latest of a series of gritty conflicts. Henderson admitted he can still learn from both evergreen locks on how to control the front-five contest at Test level. “Joe has backed me, put me in the starting squad and that’s a massive confidence booster for me,” said Henderson of boss Schmidt’s faith. “I can only try to take my opportunity as I’ve tried to take my opportunities in the past. “Hopefully that would be the grounding of me cementing a place in the starting team. “Hopefully the ability to control games is coming as I progress. “The more you play with and against players of that level, hopefully the more you can learn in how to become like them.” Head coach Schmidt has gained great success through his pragmatic gameplan, but his assistant Kiss believes the World Cup will not be won in safety-first mode. “I’d be reluctant to say that,” said Kiss when asked if conservative rugby wins World Cups. “Certainly there would be another form of pressure that prevails when there’s something huge at stake. “That might tighten up some mindsets, but I think the team that gets too conservative may not be the smartest. “You need to be able to adapt and react to the moments that are in front of you, the team that can actually see those moments, create those opportunities and clean them up at that moment are going to make a big difference. “And I’d say that tries will win the World Cup.”
