To the Honourable the Speaker and members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled:

The petition of the undersigned respectfully showeth:

That grave concern is felt at the possible ratification by Executive Council of the Bill passed in the Northern Territory Legislative Council to amend the Criminal Law Consolidation Ordinance, making abortion legal.

Your petitioners most humbly pray that the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled should take measures to ensure that into the laws of this land no principle is admitted which would violate a fundamental right, namely, the right to life.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray. by Dr Patterson.

Petition received.
