This evening I was thinking further about the anti-Green scare campaign being targeted at Christian voters, particularly the claim that a vote for the Greens is a vote for abortion on demand. I find myself asking, don’t we already effectively have that now under the Labour government, and didn’t we effectively have that under the Liberal government as well?
So, here’s the big question: if Christians think a vote for Liberals is a vote against abortion, tell me, what practical difference did a decade of the Liberal government achieve?
If you’re an American reading this, take it that I’m asking the same question about the Republican government under Bush. What practical difference did he make?
I ask this because even the Christian party comparison sheets acknowledge that Liberal and Labour both effectively pro-choice as far as legislation goes.
