(Open Letter to the Minister of Justice)


Dear Mr. Little,


We learn from the article "Labour leader Andrew Little's cancer scare" that your wife had to keep nagging you before you would get your PSA (prostate-specific antigens) tested, in view of your symptoms of possible prostate problems. Sure enough, you turned out to have prostate cancer. Needless to say, that women's magazine (New Zealand Women's Weekly) defined "nagging" as when an "exasperated but determined woman is constantly on at her partner about something or other." In other words, it defined it from the woman's point of view, ignoring the male point of view (as the media always do) that nagging is a form of emotional abuse.

In my article "Abortion Reform and Child Support Reform," I made the following points (amongst others):

When you were National Secretary of the Engineers' Union (whose members were presumably mainly male), I wrote to you and asked you to take an interest in Men's Issues, but your reply was negative....

You have made a big issue of reentering the Pike River Mine, and I agree with you on that. However, most of the beneficiaries of the reentry will be female, since it won't do the dead men any good to be brought out of the mine. If you had done your job properly in the union movement, you might have been able to reduce the occupational death and injury rate, and those men might still be alive. The vast majority of workplace deaths are male deaths -- yet it took a female unionist, Helen Kelly, to make a big issue of workplace safety -- and even that was after the Pike River tragedy!

It looks as if you (at that time, at least) did not care much about your own life and well-being. It also looks as if you extrapolated that to men in general. It seems to me that you thought that your only function was to help women and children and that you still think that the only function of men in politics is to serve women and children! This chivalry has been a great help to Feminists. The so-called "Patriarchy" was focused on helping women and children and the Feminists came along and thought, "Wow! We can use that, because all we care about is women and children, too!" So the Feminists have built on male chivalry, such as yours. You even have an Associate Minister of Justice, Jan Logie, who is on record as saying that "Human Rights" means "the safety of victims and children – particularly women and children."



Since your Associate Minister thinks that only women and children have Human Rights, could you please tell me, under the Official Information Act, what the statutory legal basis is for your statement (in your letter dated 11 Feb 2020) that it is a woman's Human Right to kill any living being that is inside her body?


Yours sincerely,


Peter Zohrab


In due course, I received the following reply from the Minister.


Letter from Minister of Justice dated 28 September 2020


I mistakenly referred to Jan Logie as being an Associate Minister, when in fact she is (for the moment, at least) just the Parliamentary Under-Secretary to the Minister of Justice (Domestic and Sexual Violence Issues).
