Someone (allegedly) called Vera Alves, almost certainly a pseudonym given the nonsense that followed, writing in the NZ Herald about abortion, unbelievably claimed “to be the voice of reason” and added, (brace yourself) “ Here’s what the issue is not; whether you think abortion is a good or bad thing.”
Really! Well what the hell is it about? Vera then tells us; specifically, “should it be in the Crimes Act and people go to jail for it. Abortions occur every day. No-one goes to jail.” Where’s the bloody editor?
The abortion issue is absolutely not about jail. It’s a much bigger issue but I won’t waste space explaining to Vera who’s real name is odds-on Sharlene.
