Sean Plunket chats to Jackie Edmonds CEO of Family Planning NZ after the announcement that Andrew Little made on Monday about abortion law. 

I think there has been a lot of encouraging support.

But overall Jackie talks about the mixed emotions she has experienced when chatting to the public. 

A lot of people are surprised; it is in the crimes act.

Edmonds is disappointed about the misinformation recently, which has focused on late-term abortions, which are pretty unusual. 

Late-term abortions are generally for families and women who are experiencing health complications.  

"I think it's pretty sad really that is how little they think of women."
