To the President and Members of the Legislative Council of the Parliament of Western Australia in Parliament assembled. We the undersigned ...
1. Oppose the Abortion Legislation Reform Bill 2023;
2. Note the Bill fails to include four key provisions recently adopted in our neighbouring State of South Australia;
3. Request that, although we oppose the Bill, if it is passed that the Legislative Council insert those four provisions from the Termination of Pregnancy Act 2021 (SA) which mandate medical care for babies born alive after a failed abortion, a ban on sex-selective abortion, a requirement for women to receive information on counselling services and mandatory considerations to be taken into account prior to any late-term abortion;
4. Appeal for the debate on this Bill, whether inside or outside Parliament, to be respectful so that no person is vilified simply because of their pro-life view that the best interests of a child in the womb warrant as much love and compassion as that of their pregnant mother.
And your petitioners as in duty bound, will ever pray.
