Misrepresenting the current abortion law

As I previously blogged, I support changing the law so that pregnant women don’t have to claim not having an  would be a threat to their mental (or physical) health. In practice we have on demand, but now in law.

However misrepresenting the current law is wrong, as done by a Green Party staffer.

That is entirely wrong. The current law in no way says abortion is illegal full stop. Pro-life NZ points out the current law.

Now as I said, I agree with Leah, and disagree with Pro-life NZ, on changing the law. But I can’t condone such blatant mistruths being told about the current law.
