Impassioned speeches from two National MPs at the March for Life

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.
