Family First’s partnership website Choose Life recently posted a very comprehensive article summarising the glaring problems and extreme provisions within the Jacinda Ardern’s, recently enacted 2020 Abortion Legislation Act. The post also exposes how amendments that would have mitigated the more extreme aspects of the bill, such as the born alive provision and fetal pain provision were all voted down by a majority of our MP’s. The implications of these amendments being rejected is quite frankly shocking.
The post also presents the voting record of all MP’s not only on the Bill but on each of the major table SOP’s (Amendments).
