To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of certain citizens of New South Wales of various beliefs respectfully sheweth:

1.   That Australian citizens place great value on the sanctity of human life and the physical, mental and social welfare of mothers and children both before and after birth.

2.   That proposals to change the law in the Federal Capital Territory to allow abortion on demand and to widen the law relating to termination of pregnancy beyond the grounds now available in N.S.W. are unacceptable to the people of Australia.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the honourable House will not extend the laws governing abortion and will uphold the precious life of the unborn child.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray. by Mr Daly.

Petition received.
