Abortion law slammed

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - - NEWS -

AN Op­po­si­tion MP has slammed the La­bor Gov­ern­ment’s abortion leg­is­la­tion al­low­ing ter­mi­na­tions up to 22 weeks into a preg­nancy.

Dr Chris­tian Rowan, the LNP Mem­ber for Mog­gill and Shadow Min­is­ter for Com­mu­ni­ties, told a rally out­side Par­lia­ment yes­ter­day the laws were part of a gov­ern­ment pur­su­ing a “hard, left-wing agenda on a mul­ti­tude of fronts’’.

“This leg­is­la­tion is not pro- choice leg­is­la­tion,’’ Dr Rowan said. “This leg­is­la­tion is proabor­tion leg­is­la­tion.”

The rally was sig­nif­i­cantly smaller than Septem­ber 1, when up to 4000 peo­ple crammed into Ge­orge St to march. But or­gan­is­ers said they were im­pressed with the turnout given the rain.

Dr Rowan said he was dis­ap­pointed the AMA sup­ported the laws which are ex­pected to be de­bated this week.
