Parents for Children.
6 March 2007

For Immediate Release

Parents Group Condemns Greens Support of “Women’s Choice” to De-Father Children.

“It’s a sad day for Kiwi Kids when the Greens are espousing that it is a women’s choice to deny a child the right to know his or her biological father.” Commented Mark Shipman, of Parents for Children. Responding to Sue Bradford’s speech for the Greens during the first reading of the Births, Deaths, Marriages, and Relationships Registration Amendment Bill.

“Ms Bradford is clear in her speech that it is a reasonable choice for women to decide to exclude a child’s biological father from the child’s life. This is a clear breach of a child’s right to know and maintain a relationship with their father and can place a child at considerable risk.

Let’s be clear the proposed exemptions in the bill protect women from being required to declare the father where issues of “safety” are involved so what the Greens are advocating is a women’s choice to de-father a child and obviously this is accepted by Ms Bradford as an appropriate position to take.”
Observed Mark on the content of Ms Bradford’s speech.

Research clearly shows that kids achieve the best outcomes when both mum and dad parent them. The Greens should be promoting equal parental rights and responsibilities instead they are advocating de-fathering children as a women’s choice. Whether parents are separated or together Kids need both mum and dad. Concluded Mark

  2. Yes Jim,

    The true colours of the Greens are shown in this speech.

    Ms I’m all for protecting children from violence is in fact promoting de-fathering of Kiwi Kids.

    Will be reminding again on 25th.

  4. Who let the dogs out?
    Why the hell are the people of our “once great” nation letting the likes of Bradford loose on our families and fatherhood?
    She’s rushing about like a rabid dog, chomping on fatherhood, tearing up children’s rights to be parented by mum and dad, and shaking apart the very foundation of families. She needs to be muzzled and given her shots (note; not a death threat).
    I have been a supporter of the Greens since their beginning, but only because of my concern for the environment. Most people I know who have or still support the Greens, do so purely for two reasons; either environmental issues or decriminalization of marjiuana. I believe Bradford’s misguided and ignorant attack on families will cause a major evaporation of support for the Greens. A double wammy; bad for the environment and bad for children.
    Why is Bradford ignorant?; because she ignores any reports, research or public opinion which goes against her personal family destroying crusade. Almost every piece of research on child development and safety shows that children are best off with both parents under one roof, and second best off with both parents actively involved in parenting. To introduce any legislation that prevents or makes this more difficult must be seen as “not in the best interest of the child”. Perhaps every parent in New Zealand should simultaneously apply to the Family Court for protection orders against Bradford and any MP who supports her Bills.
    Consider This. We know that Clark and co discussed and planned their Feminist agenda more than 30 years ago, so perhaps Bradford joining the Greens was a covert Clark initiative; part of the Feminist Agenda. The Greens would take her because that would help them with their cause, but once in a position of power, Bradford would start her tinkering and introduce Bills which would accommodate the siege of Helengrad. Green’s can’t muzzle her because they need her, and Labor will support her because…well they have a shared agenda.
    I say “Bradford’s a plant!”, and judging by her feminist family destroying policies, ignorance of research and public opinion, and general lack of intelligence, a plant might better describe her than a dog.

  5. Wayne and all,

    I lost faith in the Greens years back

    Nandor spoke to a 100 or so Men at Tauhara durring an essentially Men gathering. He made it clear that he thought Men were very important in the Fathering of our own Kids.

    He made it clear that he supported Muriels far right political attemps to make **Equal** Parenting the cornerstone of NZ-Family-Law and Social Policy

    3/4 weeks latters he said exactly the oposite as spokes person for the Greens when the Bill was debated

    Bradford is a HELEN-Femi-FASCIST-Socialist-Plant we agree

    Onward – Jim

  6. Awful to think that Bradford actually has children herself and yet she is happy to commit these atrocities against innocent Kiwi Kids.

    But perhaps this explains a lot of her actions.

    Based on her SOLID COMMITMENT to the DPB, you would be led to believe she was once a beneficiary herself? Maybe I’m wrong on this – happy if someone can correct me.

    However, if she was in fact a “sole parent” (a biological impossibility) then perhaps she has a small bias against the Father of her kids and this is the source of her hatred of EVERY man.

    That Bradford is in a position where she is able to act out her malevolent fantasies about the Father of her children on EVERY Kiwi Dad is sick and debased.

    That she CHOOSES to act out her fantasies just shows how crippled and warped her soul really is.

    A “plant” – methinks not. Bradford is simply an uneducated imbecile and a bigot (“bigot: a person who is utterly intolerant of any differing creed, belief, or opinion” who wrongly believes that all the wrongs of the world are the fault of EVERY man.

    Sorry, Bradford, you and all of your FEMI-NAZI FASCIST scum-sucking-bottom-dweller hangers on are WRONG. The ills of New Zealand society rest clearly with the actions of you, the Anti-Clark, the Queer Brigade (“Queer: strange or odd from a conventional viewpoint; unusually different”, Margaret Will-I-Won’t-I-Wilson, Duck Mallard, Cold-fish Cullen, David Cunliffe-the-coward, Annette King-of-the-idiots, Peter Dunny-boy and the rest of the spineless, immoral and unethical politicians of the last 3 decades.

    Bradford – your judgement day is coming! And, believe me, you will be judged for ALL of your atrocities and your repeated ABUSE of Kiwi Kids absolute right to be raised by both their Mum and their Dad!

  7. Despite pretensions of worldliness Bradford is a simple provincial.
    Ossified in peurile 70’s marxist-feminist ideology whereby the state supplants the natural parents of children.
    No doubt she aligns with the childless Clarke and the whole sad socialist~feminist debacle currently called the nz labour party.
    There is irony here in that it appears that having succeeded in getting Global environmetal issues into the mainstream the Greens have to justify their existance with something as narrow-minded and parochial as thier proposed legislation for children.

  8. I cannot believe this utter rubbish from the freakshow greens who are not a party of principle as they care more about snails than fathers. This is yet another attack on fatherhood /child relationships. ggggggrrrrrrrrrrrr.

    Comment by dad4justice — Wed 7th March 2007 @ 10:48 pm

  9. dad4justice,

    Like all of the politicians, the “greens” [in name only] care about only one thing: how big their next pay cheque will be.

    Be clear and strong on this: they are there only to serve themselves.

    Be happy that “as ye sow, so shall ye reap” – their judgement day is coming (note: also not a death threat).

    Comment by Ethos — Fri 9th March 2007 @ 9:28 am

  10. I always saw the Bradford anti-smacking bill as an attack on men more than anything else. Physical force where required for discipline or order has long been seen as a male contribution to parenting. Bradford and her feminist friends and apologists reject everything they see as male and want to disempower men as much as possible. They blame men for almost every local and international problem that exists. Banning physical force in child discipline removes from the parenting process the hands-on, no-bullshit approach that men provide. This is in fact a valuable contribution but it will take many years for our society to realise this. Sweden is starting to experience the bad consequences but it will take a while longer before it is forced to acknowledge them, given that its “brave new world” legislation has made it such an international cause celebre.

    Bradford’s new bill allowing mothers to exclude fathers totally from their children’s lives shows that she has no interest at all in the welfare or rights of children but is mainly motivated by a passion to denigrate and to disempower males. The true motivation behind the anti-smacking bill is thereby unmasked.

    Comment by Hans Laven — Mon 12th March 2007 @ 11:20 am

  11. Hans,

    Where Bradford’s section 59 is non-specific, Bradford’s stance that biological Fathers need to be excluded and that, by inference, she sees this amendment providing this is very specific.

    It seems Bradford may be succumbing to the belief that she is better than the balance of us mortals.

    However, her systematic and protracted attacks on the fabric of Family Life in New Zealand shows her to be more fanatical than the pilot of World Trade Centre Flight 101, 9/11.

    Fanatacism, as we know from our experiences with Adolf Hitler, is not a good thing and especially when it reaches the levels of extremity we are seeing with Bradford.

    Fortunately, Karma works in strange and wonderful ways. What goes around comes around – I for one cannot wait to see what Karma brings back to Bradford.

    Just so as we are clear, Bradford, this is not a death threat; merely a statement of fact.
