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.
