To the Honourable the Speaker and the members of the Senate in Parliament assembled, the humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth that:

Pain, suffering and death are occurring as a result of the action of sections of the medical profession and private health insurance companies.

People are being forced into private health funds and denied treatment until they do so.

We call on the Government to take action against these doctors and private health insurance companies who are engaging in this practice.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
