DNA Testing

To the Honourable The Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives

This Petition of Certain Citizens of Australia

Draws To the Attention of the House our Proposed Paternity Law

We therefore ask the House to consider the Introduction of this Law to the citizens of Australia

Proposed Paternity Law

When DNA tests prove he is not the paternal father of his children (over 18 years of age), then a court decides if DNA testing is warranted [with alleged father] to determine the paternity of the said child

Such Judgement to be made in an appropriate Court

DNA costs to be borne by the Husband/Partner

Medical treatment is facilitated when paternal parents' genes [cancer/MS] can be identified

Children often choose to have their Birth Certificate altered to reflect their true parentage

Payment of child support should always be the responsibility of the paternal father

Court-approved DNA testing can ensure the validity of specimens taken, then transported and analysed by an approved facility

A half-sister having children to her half-brother may result in "Recessive Gene Syndrome" problems for an innocent child. This new Law will reduce such tragedy

EVERY CHILD HAS THE BASIC MORAL AND HUMAN "RIGHT"—TO KNOW THEIR TRUE PATERNITY.

This issue can be solved by using above Paternity Law!
