Section 313 of the Queensland Criminal Code formally contains offences in relation to the killing of an unborn child, stating, inter alia:

Any person who … prevents the child from being born alive by any act or omission … would be deemed to have unlawfully killed the child, is guilty of a crime, and is liable to imprisonment for life.

However, under the Palaszczuk Termination of Pregnancy Act 2018, this section of the Queensland Criminal Code was amended by inserting a new subsection, subsection 313(1A), which states:

A person does not commit an offence … by performing a termination, or assisting in the performance of a termination, under the Termination of Pregnancy Act 2018.

This is the legal proof that the Queensland Labor government has legalised murder.
