Senator HARRADINE —by leave-I present the following petition from 1,520 petitioners, seeking a law to prohibit human embryo experimentation. This petition is not in accordance with Standing Orders.

We, the undersigned, wish to see a law introduced to prohibit any experimentation on frozen embryos from any In Vitro Fertilization Programme as we believe human life begins at conception and therefore deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.

Petition received.
