Sheffield, England: Premier Gladys Berejiklian has made an extraordinary appeal to her upper house colleagues to consider "strengthening" the abortion bill as she comes under pressure from conservative MPs.
Ms Berejiklian said she would be prepared to change the Crimes Act to ban gender selection abortions and encouraged upper house MPs to give the issue "careful consideration".
