Cherish Life Queensland has warned it will campaign strongly at the next state election against any members of Parliament who vote in favour of the Termination of Pregnancy Bill, warning that MPs who vote for this Bill could face a 13% swing against them.
An August 2018 YouGov Galaxy poll shows that the way MPs vote on this Bill in Parliament will influence how 54% of Queenslanders will vote at the next state election. Of these, 39% say they would be less likely to vote for an MP who supports the Bill, while 15% say they would be more likely to do so.
“If this abortion-to-birth Bill passes, it will amount to government-sanctioned killing,” executive director Teeshan Johnson said.
“Anyone who votes for this extreme Bill doesn’t deserve to be in Parliament. The first duty of government is to protect human life.”
Ms Johnson promised that at the next election Cherish Life would help any MP who voted for life, but would work to defeat any MP who supported the Bill.
