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

The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth that because it will cause untold damage to the morals of the youth of our community, the Parliament will make such laws as prohibit the importation or entry into Australia of video films, tapes, discs, slides or other recording from which a visual image can be produced which displays degradation of any person, particularly women, children or animals; scenes of explicit sexual relations showing genitalia detail; acts of violence and sex; sexual perversion such as sodomy; mutilation; child pornography; coprophilia; bestiality or the use and effect of illicit drug taking.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that you will give this matter earnest consideration and your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
