- THE TASMANIAN GOVERNMENT AND ALL OTHER AUSTRALIAN GOVERMENTS
Our twins ~Chloe and Claire~ were born tiny, fully formed but still at approx 18 weeks gestation, Sadly though current legislation does NOT allow these two girls the right to a birth/death certificate.
Unfortunately NO legislation around Australia allows for a Birth or Death certificate for a baby under 20 weeks gestation, so no matter which state you live in, your baby will NOT be recognised under the current legislation.
Without a Birth Certificate, Chloe, Claire and other babies born prior to 20 weeks gestation will never acknowledged as existing.
PLEASE HELP to change the future and ALLOW PARENTS A CHOICE to receive birth/death certificates for their beautiful babies.
We, the undersigned, request that the Australian Government, in particular the Tasmanian Government, agree to amend the current Births Deaths and Marriages legislation to include that parents are given the right to REQUEST and RECEIVE an official Birth and Death Certificate for their baby born pre 20 weeks gestation.
The Help Get Chloe And Claire Birth Certificates petition to THE TASMANIAN GOVERNMENT AND ALL OTHER AUSTRALIAN GOVERMENTS was written by Kylie McGinty and is in the category Human Rights at GoPetition.
