According to the current legislation, it is legal upon request up to 22 weeks gestation and with the approval of two doctors thereafter for a surgical termination. It is also legal for a woman to receive a medical termination up to 9 weeks gestation.

Where a health practitioner conscientiously objects to a termination, they must disclose their objection and refer the woman to a health practitioner or service that can provide the requested service.

It is illegal to protest within 150-metres of an abortion service centre.

Women do not need a doctor referral to seek a termination of pregnancy to an abortion clinic in Queensland. You have a right to access safe abortion services.
