No abortion changes until 'well into next year'

Any overhaul of the country's abortion laws won't happen until well into next year - at the very earliest, the Labour Party says.
During a Newshub election debate, Jacinda Ardern promised to remove abortion from the Crimes Act if she became prime minister.
However, the policy does not appear in the Labour Party's 100-day plan.
Justice Minister Andrew Little said the government remained committed to modernising the law.
