O'Sullivan moved a motion on Monday calling for pro-choice activists to be banned from disrupting the annual "Day of the Unborn Child", established by Pope John Paul II to provide a "position option in favour of life", and is observed on March 25.

The motion claimed it was hypocritical of pro-choice activists to complain about pro-life protests near abortion clinics while also protesting at pro-life events. It was voted down 32 to 12.

During the debate Greens senator Larissa Waters said O'Sullivan should be ashamed of himself.

"Senator O'Sullivan needs to get his hands and his rosaries off my ovaries and those of the 10,000 Queensland women who have an abortion each year, 10,000 women who have the right to make a decision about their own bodies without the opinion of senator O'Sullivan getting in their way," Waters said during the debate.

She later withdrew the comment after Liberal senator Eric Abetz objected.

O'Sullivan claimed it was these comments, which he characterised as "attacks", that prompted him to declare himself a woman on Wednesday afternoon.


“I am going to declare my gender today, as I can, to be a woman and then you'll no longer be able to attack me.”​



The Queensland senator said that centre-right conservative politicians, such as himself, can't say the word abortion without being "attacked" by the Greens.

"We can't open our traps, you cannot say the word abortion without being attacked by this mob of almost — I'd say grubs if I didn't think you were gonna make me withdraw it, Mr Acting Deputy President, but it's out there now," O'Sullivan told the Senate.

"These people come and attack me for my religious basis the other day, using words like rosary beads, because I had the audacity to raise issues around late-term abortions where babies that are only minutes away from getting a smack on the arse and a name are being aborted under the policies of the Australian Greens."

Yeah... O'Sullivan is missing a pretty big point if he's trying to pull that antic. :rolleyes:
