Is Time Magazine wrong? Or have politicians misled us?

Time Magazine is doing a feature on spanking (“smacking”) as the US debates the issue.

As part of the coverage they include a chart entitled “How Other Countries Handle Spanking“.

Note the description for NZ

NZ became the first English-speaking country to fully prohibit corporal punishment in June 2007.

Fully prohibit? That’s not what the politicians told us.
