Abortion laws

Eligibility - Queensland citizens

Principal Petitioner:

Kirsty Golding
13 Atholl Court

Total Signatures - 33

Sponsoring Member: Ian Rickuss MP

Posting Date: 24/11/2009

Tabled Date: 24/11/2009

Responded By: Hon Cameron Dick MP on 24/12/2009

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland
The petition of citizens of Queensland draws to the attention of the House that: • decriminalising abortion will allow an increase in the number of unborn children killed for unacceptable reasons; • the current laws protect the family - mother, father, grand-parents, and the unborn child;• the majority of the public regard unborn children as human beings who have the right to be protected.Your petitioners therefore request the House to maintain the abortion laws as they presently stand.
