Grant Robertson has come out strongly in the abortion debate in wake of the Roe v Wade overturning.

At today's post-Cabinet, he accused Luxon of political spin in wake of statements over the weekend saying he would not seek to change New Zealand’s abortion laws.

The calls come after Luxon instructed MP Simon O’Connor was instructed to remove an anti-abortion post on social media while saying O’Connor is entitled to his opinion.

Nanaia Mahuta also labelled the decision 'draconian' on social media, despite voting against New Zealand's abortion legislation bill.
