PETITIONS - Abortion

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 imminent introduction into the Commonwealth Parliament of legislation to permit abortion on demand.

Your petitioners most humbly pray that the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled should: not admit into the law of this land a principle which violates a fundamental right, the right to life.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray. by Mr Collard.

Petition received.
