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 attitudes of the churches and the do-gooders in the Canberra community (1) who appear to feel that they are the sole experts in all that is morally right or wrong and (2) who, to the uninitiated, might appear to be, through their active campaign in petitioning the House, representative of a majority of the people of Canberra.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the House will recognise that the recent anti-abortion campaign by the do-gooders in the community is ill conceived and not representative of the community as a whole. by Mr Enderby.

Petition received.
