In this weeks edition we talked about the Alliance and Green party manifestos and the Abortion rights debate that has been ongoing during this election.

This week we were joined by Commentator Felicity Huston

    Perhaps the statement “don’t judge…” should’ve been put in inverted commas to prevent you assuming that I was talking personally. Regardless men being unable to have abortions is hardly a gender-based assumption rather than a physical impossibility.

    Regardless men being unable to have abortions is hardly a gender-based assumption rather than a physical impossibility.

    It’s a curious position to take. Most women who voted in the last election voted for pro-life candidates. About half the women I know well (friends, family members etc) are pro-life.

    If what you have been saying on various posts here is representative of GP thinking on abortion (and I’m not sure it is) , then that is more likely to lose votes than garner them in. I am specifically referring to your previous assertion that it was a black and white issue with people (such as myself) who take up a middle ground position in supporting change being anti women. You make it sound as if the Greens do not value diversity or even as if no one in the GP is “allowed” to have an opinion other than that of support for transferring the 67 Act
