Amendment Rejected As NSW Abortion Bill Debate Continues
Tue 17 Sep 2019
Debate has continued into the night on proposed amendments to the controversial bill to decriminalise abortion in NSW.
The upper house began debating amendments to the bill on Tuesday afternoon following the threat of a leadership spill against Premier Gladys Berejiklian over her handling of the private member's bill.
In its current form, the Reproductive Health Care Reform Bill 2019 would allow terminations up to 22 weeks as well as later abortions if two doctors agree.
