Senator RYAN - I present the following petition from 1 14 citizens of Australia:

To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled. A petition of the undersigned respectfully showeth:

That withdrawal of Government benefits under schedule 6469 for first trimester abortion would discriminate against and disadvantage the least privileged in our society.

Your petitioners most humbly pray that the Senate, in Parliament assembled, should:

Under no circumstances withdraw Government benefit under schedule 6469 for first trimester abortion.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.

Petition received and read.
