To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled.

The peitition of certain citizens of Australia shows-that at present, certain infertility treatments including; hormonal drugs, procedures and laboratory services, are not covered by any health insurance due to non-itemisation on the Commonwealth rebate list. The psychological and emotional stress of infertility is therefore increased by the added financial stress.

Your petitioners therefore pray, that the Parliament will view our plight to create life with sympathy, by recognising our needs, and taking action to include the abovementioned items on the Commonwealth rebate list.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
