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 the endangerment of the lives of a large number of unborn babies especially late term abortions.

Your petitioners call upon your Honourable House to uphold the sanctity of human life and to defend the right of children to be born by rejecting any and all attempts by advocates of abortion to destroy these lives in the womb.

Your petitioners also call on your Honourable House to seek ways and means of promoting to the people of our great nation the truth that each baby is a wonderful gift from God, deserving protection and nurturing from conception.

We the petitioners are asking your Honourable House to provide help and counselling for those mothers who find it difficult to cope with an unplanned pregnancy. Surely adoption of the baby would be a preferable option. There are many couples longing to have a baby to love.

by Mr Murphy (from 115 citizens)
