Tim Levchenko-Scott

Around 1,000 people turned out for the March for Life in Wellington yesterday, along with no less than two National MPs and a former National Prime Minister. Sir Bill English and his wife, Dr Mary English, kept a low profile in the crowd, but two other National MPs gave impassioned speeches supporting the anti-abortion cause of?March?for Life.

This was the third annual march and the numbers and the passion of the marchers gave a clear indication of the level of support there is among ordinary New Zealanders for the pro-life position.??With abortion law reform currently under consideration in New Zealand?it’s good to see MPs prepared to take a stand on the matter.? National have kept it as a conscience issue at this stage with Simon Bridges not instructing his 56 MPs on how he wants them to vote.?The New Conservative party has made a?policy position of being anti-abortion.
