Ethnicity breakdown of abortion vote

The breakdown by ethnicity of how people voted on the abortion legislation is interesting. It was:

  • Asians 50% for, 50% against
  • Europeans 84% for, 16% against
  • Maori 81% for, 19% against
  • Pasifika 50% for, 50% against

So very similar proportions in favour amongst European and Maori MPs, while Asian and Pasifika MPs were split 50/50.
