Almost half of Queensland voters would be unwilling to support their preferred candidate in the upcoming election if they wanted accessing an abortion to remain a criminal offence.
A ReachTEL poll revealed LNP voters were the most likely to support their preferred candidate if the candidate wanted abortion to remain a crime, with 62.1 per cent agreeing, compared with 42.5 per cent of Labor voters, 20.9 per cent Greens and 59.7 per cent One Nation.
Overall, 50.1 per cent of respondents said they would not vote for their preferred candidate if that candidate wanted access to abortion to remain a criminal offence.
