Tuesday, 5 March 2002

MR SPEAKER (Mr Berry) took the chair at 10.30 am, made a formal recognition that the Assembly was meeting on the land of the traditional owners, and asked members to stand in silence and pray or reflect on their responsibilities to the people of the Australian Capital Territory.

Petition

The following petition was lodged for presentation, by Mrs Dunne , from 77 residents.

Abortion legislation

To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory

The petition of certain residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly that the proposed Crimes Amendment Bill and the Health Regulation Repeal Bill will make it legal to perform abortions at any stage of a pregnancy and will remove the requirement for women to be informed about the procedure.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to oppose the passage of the Crimes Amendment Bill and the Health Regulation Repeal Bill.

The Clerk having announced that the terms of the petition would be recorded in Hansard and a copy referred to the appropriate minister, the petition was received.
