A Nationals senator has been branded a disgrace for a controversial push to condemn the Queensland government's proposed abortion laws. Queensland senator Barry O'Sullivan sparked a tense debate in parliament on Monday over changes to his state's abortion laws.
Under the state government's move to decriminalise abortion in Queensland, women would be able to ask to terminate pregnancies up to 22 weeks.
