NZ Herald: Roe v Wade abortion ruling: National MP Simon O'Connor told to remove post
National Party leader Christopher Luxon says MP Simon O'Connor was asked to delete a social media post saying it was a "good day" after abortion rights in the US were curtailed because it "was causing distress and does not represent the position of the National Party."
O'Connor yesterday posted "today is a good day" on social media after the Supreme Court ruling overturning the Roe v Wade decision in the US – a step that means US states can ban abortion.
The post was later removed.
Luxon, whose personal views are also opposed to abortion, this morning confirmed O'Connor was asked to remove the post.
