Abortion law critics angered by handling of submissions

first_imgNZ Herald 9 October 2019Family First Comment: Conservative lobby group Family First is campaigning firmly against the legislation and its national director, Bob McCoskrie, called the situation “disgraceful”. “It’s highly controversial from both sides, so why shut that down? It’s a major change,” he said. “I think it’s patronising they can determine which submission they can hear, when you’re blocking doctors, lawyers, Pasifika leaders.” He said he believed the committee was rushing though what was a significant issue.Opponents of proposed abortion legislation say too many submitters are being turned away by a Parliamentary committee hearing public submissions on the changes.But the committee’s chair says every voice that needs to be heard will be.The Abortion Legislation Bill, which would allow women access to abortions until 20 weeks’ pregnancy without having to go through current legal loopholes, overwhelmingly passed its first reading in Parliament by 94 votes to 23 in August.A special Select Committee taking public input on the bill on Wednesday announced it had received more than 25,000 written submissions.By comparison, the End of Life Choice Bill – legalising voluntary euthanasia – received a record 35,000 submissions last year, while same-sex marriage legislation in 2012 garnered 22,000.The committee has now confirmed it will be hearing 150 submissions orally, out of 2890 who asked to speak.Conservative lobby group Family First is campaigning firmly against the legislation and its national director, Bob McCoskrie, called the situation “disgraceful”.“It’s highly controversial from both sides, so why shut that down?

FA Cup: Wolves, Man U settle for third round draw

first_imgRelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ Arsenal, Wolves want Michael Olise EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers will have to do it all again in the FA Cup after the Premier League pair played out a goalless draw at Molineux. There were changes aplenty following a hectic festive period for both clubs and neither could get a foothold in a fairly drab first-half. Sergio Romero produced one fine save to deny Matt Doherty but that was the only event of note. The second period saw chances for both sides, with Juan Mata first seeing a free-kick fly just inches wide before second-half substitute Marcus Rashford hitting the bar with a deflected effort. Doherty had a goal disallowed for handball, while Raúl Jiménez hit the post as the game drew to a conclusion. The replay will suit neither manager, as both are already having to juggle their squads due to Europa League commitments and United are in League Cup action on Tuesday, but neither side can feel unlucky not to win following what wasn’t a great advertisement for the competition.Tags: FA CupJuan MataManchester UnitedMatt DohertyRaul JimenezWolverhampton Wandererslast_img read more

Allardyce: Tomkins will carry on

first_img But it will not stop him featuring against Southampton due to West Ham’s ongoing defensive injury situation as, with b oth James Collins and Winston Reid missing with hamstring problems, Allardyce expects Tomkins to once again partner stand-in Cheikhou Kouyate at St Mary’s. “He broke his nose but it’s not serious enough to keep him out,” Allardyce said. “From a challenge point of view I thought it was pretty naughty. He (Van Persie) had a look to see where the defender was and then took him out basically. “The assistant referee gave a foul but he didn’t think it was more serious. Tomkins should be fit to play tomorrow night which is the most important thing for us.” Tomkins said after the game against United that it was an innocent challenge from substitute Fellaini which actually did the damage to his nose – although he also questioned Van Persie’s motives. “The nose is a bit swollen,” he told national newspapers. “Fellaini was the second time in the match when I broke it. He has always got that about him when he goes up with his hands a lot,” Tomkins said. “It is tough to say he does it deliberately, but with the Van Persie one, I think he had a look at me first and then he has gone for me. I think that was more malicious than the other one, even though I came out worse the second time.” Press Association Neither Collins nor Reid will be fit in time for the trip to the south coast, with Kouyate stepping in well against United, scoring the opening goal and showing he is more than an able deputy. But Allardyce may be able to welcome back club-record signing Andy Carroll – even though that news has been tainted by a potential foot injury to captain Kevin Nolan. With a number of key players still absent, Allardyce is pleased with the momentum garnered from the draw with Van Gaal’s side a nd he stood by the long-ball claims he made in the post-match press conference following Daley Blind’s last-gasp leveller for the visitors. Allardyce said: “The media love a bit of a tale, something to write about. It (United’s long-ball tactic) was a fact and everyone loves facts. “On Sunday it was Man United playing direct football to try and overcome a defeat and it paid off for them. That’s how they got back into the game and sadly for us there wasn’t time for us to react. “We have to pick up from where we left off against United. They gave everything they possibly had and we want to maintain that level in every game for the rest of the season. “So Wednesday night is all about our attitude and determination. We’re going to need to push ourselves in order to win. We had a bit of a lull in our performances recently but to see us back to near our best was a big boost. We don’t want our season to fade away.” Allardyce also revealed he is hopeful of signing former Real Madrid midfielder Lassana Diarra after confirming the France international is training with the Hammers. Diarra, 29, has been without a club since leaving Lokomotiv Moscow in August but is not too far away from match fitness and could be turning out for West Ham inside a fortnight if the expected deal is completed in the coming days. “He is training with us,” Allardyce said. “I’m not so sure whether we have finalised a deal yet but he is doing a little bit of training with us. The deal is very close to being finalised and on the basis of where we are with our squad and the injuries, once we have him fit he will be a very good addition based on his previous record as a footballer.” Diarra’s spell in Moscow ended acrimoniously after reports he refused to train following a bust-up with manager Leonid Kuckuk but, despite not playing in almost nine months, Allardyce believes the former Chelsea, Arsenal and Portsmouth man could soon be part of his first-team squad at Upton Park. “He won’t be in any good shape in terms of being on the bench on Wednesday or on the bench on Saturday against West Brom,” said Allardyce. “But I certainly hope that, with a good few days’ training with the lads, he will be close in seven to 10 days if he finally signs the contract.” The Manchester United striker caught Tomkins with a stray arm in Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Upton Park, after which Allardyce labelled Louis van Gaal’s side as ”long-ball United”. Despite Van Persie avoiding punishment from referee Mark Clattenburg for catching Tomkins with his elbow, Allardyce called the incident a ”naughty” challenge – even though Tomkins himself revealed the break came in a separate incident with Marouane Fellaini. Sam Allardyce will field James Tomkins at Southampton on Wednesday despite the defender breaking his nose against Manchester United, with the West Ham boss claiming his player was also “taken out” in a separate incident with Robin van Persie.last_img read more
