Debate on the bill to decriminalise abortion in New South Wales has wrapped up in the Lower House.

The Independent MP who introduced it, Alex Greenwich, will reply before amendments are put forward, most of them regarding late-term terminations, after 22 weeks.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian will reportedly abstain from speaking on the matter so as not to influence MPs who have been granted a conscience vote.

Minister Damien Tudehope is a father of nine and tells Alan Jones he’s speaking out against the bill mostly because of the flawed process.

“We have in fact disenfranchised people from having views by trying to ram it through the parliament so quickly.

“The manner in which a bill from an independent, which is a far-left Greens bill, is going through the Parliament is really something that I think we all ought to be objecting to.

“We should’ve slow this process down so that people can express their views.”
