Politicians have broken down in tears and recounted their personal experiences with pregnancy and termination while debating laws to decriminalise abortion in Queensland.
A vote on the proposal is expected late today.
If the bill passes, it will allow abortions up until 22 weeks' gestation, and post 22 weeks with the approval of two medical practitioners.
