Three controversial New Zealand laws intersected during this incident when Williams tries to murder his pregnant partner in a cruel and brutal way.
1. The Three Strikes law, authorising the full penalty to be applied to repeat violent offenders, that the Government wants removed.
2. Being under the influence of meth and cannabis at the time of the offending raises the fact that Government advocates for a liberal approach to the recreational use of drugs.
3. The Abortion Legislation Act, where the Government argued that a baby in a mother’s womb did not qualify as a human being.
