Men must be able to have abortions also!

Newshub reports:

A heated debate broke out at a select committee considering changes to abortion law, after some submitters asked for the legislation to say “pregnant person” instead of “pregnant woman”.
The Abortion Legislation Bill – which would bring abortion out of the Crimes Act and remove the need for a doctor’s approval before 20 weeks – currently uses the term “pregnant woman”. 
But some submitters have asked the committee to consider replacing “pregnant woman” with “pregnant person” or “pregnant women and people” in the legislation to represent diversity.

Yes it is critical than pregnant men are also able to have abortions.

You might consider this a trivial issue but imagine you’re a man who got pregnant. Would you want to carry the baby to term?
