NSW govt hoping rogue MPs compromise as abortion debate continues

September 23, 2019. NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian and state finance and small business minister Damien Tudehope speaking to media in Sydney about the ongoing debate of a bill aimed at reforming abortion law in the state. Berejiklian says she will support all amendments made in the upper house as she has previously stated and tells people to trust in the system. "When the process started I said to everybody: trust the process," she says. Tudehope says amendments are taking time but that is due to a proper process being applied. "I can's speak for Mr Connolly and Tanya Davies ... but I would hope that in the spirit of trying to get the best possible piece of legislation in relation to this act that we will reach some sort of compromise," he says. Debate on amendments to a bill decriminalising abortion in NSW will resume after the upper house in a late-night session approved a watered-down amendment opposing sex-selective terminations on Friday.
