Pro-choice protestors to rally around NZ for abortion law reform
Feb 18, 2020
Pro-choice protestors are set to rally around New Zealand today in support of abortion law reform.
“Now is the time for people who care about women and pregnant people to come out to the National Day of Action and show the politicians we need change," said Terry Bellamak, National President of the Abortion Law Reform Association of New Zealand (ALRANZ).
The Abortion Legislation Bill, which passed its first reading last year at 94 votes to 23, is under a conscience vote, meaning MPs will vote in the next reading on what they individually believe, rather than along party lines.
