One of Jacinda's inevitable targets was abortion law, which she has repeatedly claimed she wants treated as a health issue that shouldn't be in the Crimes Act. This is a non sequitur. The location of abortion law, or any law, is irrelevant.

Welcome to our village, wee one. So read the tweet sent out to the nation by St Jacinda and the fisherman to announce the arrival of their first born.
