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

The humble petition of the undersigned residents of Katherine in the Northern Territory of Australia shows that certain citizens are concerned that the Commonwealth Parliament may legislate to deny the right to life to a class of human beings.

Your petitioners respectfully ask that no steps be taken to widen the existing grounds for abortion and that efforts be made to enforce the present law.

And your petitioners as in duty bound do ever humbly pray. by Mr Calder.

Petition received.
