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 there is compelling evidence from the United States of America that legislation similar to our proposed Sex Discrimination Bill has been used to defend the alleged right to abortion and to abortion funding.

Your petitioners most humbly pray that the House of Representatives assembled should ensure that the proposed Australian Sex Discrimination Bill spells our clearly that neither abortion nor abortion funding is covered in this Bill.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
