Easy now, coming in hot.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is asking for “views based on fact” after National MP Harete Hipango accused her of supporting abortions to full-term.
Whanganui MP Hipango blasted Ardern in a Facebook post on Monday for supporting the Abortion Legislation Act 2020, a law change passed in March that brought abortion out of the Crimes Act.
It meant abortions for pregnancies of less than 20 weeks were decriminalised, provided that certain conditions were met, and that the abortion was authorised by two certifying consultants.
I know what you’re thinking, who the fuck is Harete Hipango and why am I hearing about a nothing nobody National MP again? Well Harete is a hard core anti-abortion fanatic from Whanganui who is lying about full term abortions to manipulate the anti-abortion crazies.
What’s funniest here is why Harete isn’t posting Facebook anger at her own leader Judith Collins for voting for the same legislation, she’s just having a weird meltdown at Jacinda.
What’s even weirder is this all happened in March, it’s July now, has she only realised the law passed already?
Wait till Harete hears about this pandemic lockdown!
It’s important to remember at their core, National want to rob women of a basic medical right like abortion. Keep that in mind when you vote in September.
