At that time, according to Parliamentary procedure, further attempts to decriminalise abortion would not be able to take place until at least the next term of Parliament. In a face-saving measure, the Labor Government Attorney-General submitted the existing abortion laws to the
Queensland Law Reform Commission
Very shortly after Labor's recent re-election to Government on 25 November 2017 the Queensland Law Reform Commission issued a
Review of Termination of Pregnancy Laws Consultation Paper
. After their review of the state's current abortion laws they will recommend new abortion legislation to the Government by 30 June.
