To the Honourable the Speaker and the Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The petition of the undersigned respectfully showeth:

That grave concern is felt at the imminent introduction into the Commonwealth Parliament of legislation to permit abortion on demand.

Your petitioners most humbly pray that the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled should not admit into the laws of this land a principle which violates a fundamental right - the right to life. And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray. by Mr Hayden, Mr Adermann, Mr Bennett, Mr Cross, Mr Drury, Mr Malcolm Fraser (2), Mr Giles, Mr Hallett, Mr Jarman, Mr Katter, Mr Keating, Mr Luchetti, Mr Lucock (5), Mr McLeay, Mr Maisey, Mr OIley, Mr Scholes, Mr Viner, Mr Whan and Mr Wilson.
