Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman says she decided to vote against the abortion bill before State Parliament after taking into account her own life and career experiences aswell as listening to the people in her electorate.

Ms. Tuckerman says it's not about addressing whether terminating pregnancies is right or wrong but is instead about the legal framework in which it operates.

She claims the majority of her constituents objected to the bill and she too has concerns around the way the legislation was framed for late term abortions.
