61. Let's Take back our Constitutional Rights

The federal government has abused the trust of the people, violating the rights guaranteed in the Constitution.

We are asking for a full and comprehensive investigation into the blatant abuse of power being committed by an out-of-control Executive Branch and an enabling Legislative Branch of the federal government.

62. Support The Marriage Equality Agenda for Australia

As you all know Marriage equality has been a much debated topic and there has been much talk on whether or not is should be legalzied in Australia.

Well we say yes, we have come so far as a nation so why stop here by discriminating against people for their gender which is an extrememely old fashioned ideaology?

63. Stop Facebook from Misusing Their Users

Facebook has been blocking users for just using their Accounts and claiming they are using them to fast and or using them not as they had been meant to be used.

64. Save Millie and her mum from deportation

A SEVEN-YEAR-OLD Scots schoolgirl will be forced to move 7500 miles to the other side of the world because her mum is being deported.

Millie Canales, who was born in the UK and has lived in Scotland since she was a baby, is being sent to South America.

The P3 pupil, who speaks with a broad Scots accent, now faces a life of poverty in an earthquake zone in Chile with her pregnant mum Francisca.

Millie has only made two short trips to Chile and speaks no Spanish, so will be unable to communicate with anyone there.

She has known no other life apart from her semi-detached home in Stirling and her circle of friends at the city’s Braehead Primary School.

Millie said yesterday: “If I lose all my friends, I’ll be very sad. That is what the baddies want to do.”

Francisca, 27, who first came to the UK as a student when she was 16, said of her daughter, whose full name is Millaray: “She would be lost if we had to go to Chile now.

“She is like any other wee Scots girl, with a Scots accent and Scots friends.

“She has only been to Chile twice on holiday to see her gran and cannot read or write Spanish.”

Francisca added: “Scotland is my home, and my daughter has known no other home, but I feel everything I’m trying to do for my family is being sabotaged at every turn.

“I’ve never tried to hide from the UK Border Agency. I’ve always had the right visas and always kept them informed.

“I’ve always worked, paid my taxes and I’ve always tried to do the right thing for my family.

“The Human Rights Act states that all children are a priority and should always be protected.”

The UK Border Agency’s bombshell means Millie will be forced to live with her mum and grandmum in a cramped flat in the Chilean city of Talca, which was virtually destroyed by a massive earthquake in 2010.

The family’s plight is made even worse by the fact that Francisca is five months pregnant.
Francisca was first told to leave the UK when she applied to extend her visa in June last year.

The Home Office based their decision on the fact that she was no longer living with Millie’s father, a Spanish national she met in the UK and who now plays no role in her daughter’s life.

Francisca claims she was given only days to quit the country but she then applied for permanent residence based on human rights laws.

This application was rejected in February and Millie now knows her fate and is terrified of losing her pals.

She said: “I don’t want to live in Chile because it is so far away.

“This is like goodies and baddies. We are the goodies but the baddies won’t put a stamp on my passport or my mum’s passport.”

Like most girls her age, Millie’s loves princesses. She’s got posters of princesses plastered over her bedroom walls and loves the book Princess Smartypants.

She also enjoys school, where her favourite subject is history and her favourite teacher is Mrs Muir.

Heartbroken Francisca said: “We didn’t plan this situation, it just happened.

“Millie was born in the UK, for goodness sake. We’ve not tried to bend the rules or cheat. We’ve always been honest and open.”

The UK Border Agency’s ruling that Francisca is in Scotland without permission has led to her being fired from her £17,500-a-year job in the insurance industry.

It means her family also face a financial struggle in the run-up to her baby’s birth.

Their last hope is an appeal tribunal hearing, due to be held on June 3.

Francisca said: “If I lose, I’ll need to return to live with my mum in Chile.

“I’ll have no choice but to take Millaray with me. That will be devastating.

“Chile is a foreign country to her, and I’ve not lived there since I was 16.”

65. GRAND Grandparents Requesting Access and Dignity

"We will be focusing on the affects children have when having to/or being forced to ignore the existence of a Grandparent".

This plays a significant role in the lives of children. This study also indicates that the Grandparents role iris a integral part of their self identity. When the role of Grandparents is removed the physical and emotional affects are severe resulting in psychological consequences....

We as Grandparents have to fight our Legislature to protect and change our so called "grandparents rights to visitation" this law is redundant and protects no one.

If the courts considers "the best interest of the child" they would understand the pros and cons of how increased parent-grandparent conflicts will NEGATIVELY impact the child... versus the POSITIVE impact of the child of having a relationship with the Grandparent.

Thanks for your support.

66. Prevent Spying on New Zealand Citizens

This petition is against the legislation John Key is attempting to put in place which will allow the government intelligence agencies the right to monitor and spy on New Zealand citizens.

It is already clear that the New Zealand Intelligence agencies have already been misusing such positions and already engaged in illegally spying on it's citizens without justification. This is a serious threat which is treading on our rights as New Zealanders.

Imagine a government that monitors and tracks law abiding citizens. Accesses personal information and uses such information for profiling.

We are looking at a threat similar to that of the United States Patriot Act which also treads on your liberal right of freedom of speech. Throughout history we have seen governments and leaders misuse such a power and the people have become the victims of their tyrannical governments or leaders.

67. Stand up for Life

A baby's growth In the first trimester that rules out just a bunch of cells.

In Exodus 20:13 it says: Thou shalt not kill. Many Christian's are pro-choice, but if they are believers of God and claim to follow God, than why do they not see this scripture? How to baby's somehow not apply? Also in Matthew 5:21: Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgement:

In Psalms 139:13-16: For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb.

14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.

15 My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skilfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.

All scientist' and biologist' cannot correctly deny the fact that a baby is a living being at conception.

A baby is fully formed at 12 weeks, that's well before the end of the first trimester. So if a baby is conceived and alive at conception, then when tell me, is it still ok at 11 weeks?, 10 weeks? Does there come a time when it is not a living human being after conception? It may not be fully formed at that age, but it is still alive.

Q: At what point does it become wrong to intentionally destroy a developing human being?

A: Conception?

B: Implantation?

C: Heart beat?

D: Brain waves?

E: Capacity of pain?

F: Viability?

G: Birth?

H: Mobility?

In 2003 66% of Australian's thought abortion should be legal in the first trimester.

10% thought it should be legal in the third trimester.

Why the discrepancy?

Because a third trimester abortion kills a baby and a first trimester kills a bunch of cells.

Or does it?

A 9 week old foetus sucks its thumb and turns somersaults.

A 7 week embryo shows distinct limb movement.

A 6 week embryo has measurable brain impulses.

A 3 week embryo has a heart beat.

They may not look like a baby yet, but they look exactly as a human being should look 21 days after conception.

In the hours of conception every aspect of the genetic inheritance for a new individual will be determined once and for all.

So begins the first day of the first nine months of life.

At any stage of pregnancy, abortion kills a rapidly developing, genetically distinct, human being.

68. We Should Have Options - Bring Back Go Transit Monthly Passes

In January 2013 GO transit stopped issuing Monthly Passes and will only accept PRESTO cards or Cash. Recently the price of a ticket paid by cash is $9.20 from Oshawa to Union Stn. PRESTO cards are card you tap on and off thanks to technology, but i'm sure as everyone has noticed technology does have glitches at time.

If you are heading to work, and you tap on... what happens if your card doesn't work, or you unintentionally tap on twice, or you tap on and think it worked but when the time comes to tap your card on the train to make sure you paid and your card doesn't work? you will be stuck with a ticket making you pay even more. Monthly passes were expensive but we should still have the option... we have the RIGHT to have the option because the amount of money GO transit makes off of us is plenty to keep monthly passes available.

If you go to Union Stn in Toronto you will notice a billboard of some sorts across fro track number 4 of what Union Station will look like.. It looks like our hard earned dollars are going towards stuff to make THEM better but not us at all. WE HAVE RIGHTS - WE SHOULD HAVE OPTIONS especially if we are using our money to pay for their renovations...

69. STOP RAPE IN INDIA

On Friday the 15th of March 2013, a Swiss girl was raped by several (possibly 7 or 8) Indian men, while her boyfriend was tied to a tree. This act of violence is not standing alone.

Through the past years, there have been many acts of (group) rapes in India. Rape is a direct violation against the human rights, and therefore it should be strictly prohibited.

The Indian government is not taking enough action against it. That’s why the rapes still continue. Therefore the United Nations should make sure the Indian government is going to take action.

70. Support Gay Rights

Note the first amendment in the Bill of Rights. Everyone has a road to happiness. Many people who can't marry aren't happy.

71. Let Simon Back


بتاريخ 9/1/2013 تم خطف الطفلة (سيمون داود إسماعيل) والتي تدين بالديانة الأيزيدية و تبلغ من العمر أقل من إثني عشر عاما كونها من مواليد 18/7/2001من قرب دار أهلها في مجمع شيخكا في ناحية ألقوش في قضاء تلكيف في محافظة نينوى . وقد قام والدها بتبليغ الشرطة وتسجيل الشكوى بشأن خطفها لغرض إيجادها وإنقاذها من المجرمين الخاطفين وإعادتها إلى أهلها. و بعد وقوع جريمة خطفها بأيام قام الخاطفون بإبلاغ أهلها بأنها قد أسلمت وتم زواجها من أحد الأشخاص وفق الشريعة الإسلامية .

72. Respect & equality for women in India and Pakistan

In light of the recent rape and murder of a girl by 6 men on a bus in New Delhi, we the undersigned, call on the UK govt to put pressure on India and Pakistan to legislate for women's right for respect and equality.

Let's stop the abuse now!!

73. Stop the 2013 Assault Weapons Ban, and any other ban on firearm ownership

Firearm Ownership is not only a right guaranteed by the second Ammendment, but also a god given right to be able to defend ourselves.

Diane Feinstein has proposed a bill that would not only limit our ability to purchase firearms, but also limit our ability to defend ourselves, our families, and our way of life. She has used the tragedy in Connecticut to her own political advantage, which is not only distasteful, but also a disgusting misuse of power.

Connecticut already has a firearms ban, did that stop the shooter? No, so why would a nationwide ban on weapons be any different. The real problem here is evil, not firearms, and we need to be able to defend ourselves against it. In China, 22 children were killed by a knife wielding madman at an elementary school on or about the same day.

China has not proposed a ban on Knives, because its not the tools that cause these incidents, it is people, with evil intent in their hearts. Schools are supposedly safe "Gun Free" zones, did that law stop this man from going into a school and murdering innocent people? No, because criminals and evil know no laws, follow no rules, and these so called "Gun Free" zones are part of the problem, we protect our President with armed security, our money, our borders, our homes and streets with armed police, but we fail to protect our most precious asset our children?

74. ALLOW CRISIS WEAPONS

Every day we hear about the bad in the world, and any man or women can see that we are living in the bottleneck of war. It is at this point in our global society where every man and woman should have a gun.

I'm not an american, nor do i agree with everyone having a gun at all times. This is because not everyone needs a gun at all times. With the situation in the wold only growing more dire and closer to war ever day i propose that every man & woman 20 and over should be provided with a 9mm pistol in times of crisis. While the military is off at war who is protecting you at home? There is no one stopping someone from coming into our home with their gun and taking advantage of you and your child. Some people may think putting guns on the streets of Canada is just adding to the problem when there is clearly enough death on our streets. This is the thing there are already guns on the streets in the hands of BAD people what's wrong with giving those perfectly SANE perfectly responsible people a gun in a time of crisis.

I and many people who i have spoken to believe that at the age of 19 you should be properly trained to use a gun, and given your licence, NOT YOUR WEAPON. this is just one of the precautions that we would have to take. Plus all guns will be registered, guns are not cheap, but whats more important than the protection of our citizens and our families... i cant think of anything, can you ? the gist of what i'm saying is that every man at the age of 19 should be properly trained and given a gun. This gun will be kept in a designated place their should be a few in each city so your gun is no more then 20 minutes away from your home closer would be better, This will ensure that these guns are not used to commit acts of unrighteous unjustifiably violence. their may come a time when everyone wishes this had been made a right but by then it would have been to late, whats wrong with this idea no one gets their gun to walk the streets, and you cannot pick up your fire-arm unless we are in a time of crisis.

What justifies crisis WILL need to be reevaluated. But as the president of the NRA in America said "we already know the bad guys have guns, whats wrong with putting a gun in the hands of good, trained, men and women in a crisis. i cant find an reason why this is a bad idea but then again everyone is entitled to their opinion.

75. Amendment to the Charter of Human Rights and the Governing system

The Charter and Government are a ancient system that when they were created benefited the people then, but our modern society is no longer benefiting from the Governing body and the Charter is too often imbalanced trying to consider each right.

Rights are denied or other Rights supersede the ones that protects a person from either cruel and unusual punishment or the right to live, and the right to be free from persecution. Violations that are too numerous to name happen frequently.

We the people should be able to declare our government unfit and incapable of efficiently running the nation, that it is not doing it's job and that it needs reform.

76. Approval of Same-Sex Marriage in Michigan

Throughout American history, we have fought for the rights of others. For example, the African-American civil rights movement took place over sixty years. The dates don't matter, but the fact that it did happen does matter. In today's society, homosexuals are faced with many rights issues.

Why should homosexuals not be able to marry? Who is it hurting? It is no one's business but the couple's whether or not they choose to pursue marriage. And if they do, then they should have the given right just as anyone else. If we were discriminating against another race or religion, then this movement would have happened a long time ago.

With the re-election of President Barack Obama, many states have approved same-sex marriage, and I believe that with enough support, Michigan can as well.

77. Stop the Keystone Pipe Line

Why we should oppose TransCanada’s Keystone XL Pipeline:
TransCanada does not care about landowners:
They have coerced families into signing fraudulent contracts and used eminent domain to take their land by force.

The pipeline threatens our health:
Toxic tar sands are corrosive and spill more often than crude. Spills are too difficult to cleanup. TransCanada’s pipeline threats the health of millions.

Grandmother and Texas landowner, Susan Scott has fought TransCanada for 4 years. She was unable to make an informed decision on TransCanada’s contract, which falsely described the pipeline as transporting crude oil, and not diluted bitumen (toxic tar sands).

Susan was bullied into signing with TransCanada after threats of land seizure by eminent domain.

U.S. pipeline company Enbridge is responsible for the worst tar sands spill in North America--and its total cover-up. Despite the warning signs, Enbridge allowed about one million gallons of toxic tar sands to spill in the Kalamazoo river. Over 200 people became sick, and the river’s fish all died. Enbridge paid for people’s silence and literally buried the spill.

Why we should oppose TransCanada’s Keystone XL Pipeline:
TransCanada has no integrity: They lie to landowners, indigenous communities, and regulators. TransCanada is a corporation that cannot be trusted with our communities’ safety.

Tar sands extraction is the most destructive plan on Earth: It produces four-times the carbon emissions as compared to crude oil. It will destroy a forest the size of NY state.

TransCanada has repeatedly lied about the contents of their pipeline. They claim it will transport crude oil, but we know that it will contain toxic tar sands. The contents of TransCanada’s pipelines are kept secret, even to regulators after dozens of uncleaned toxic spills. TransCanada lies to indigenous communities, and tramples their land and burial grounds.

Lies from TransCanada:
Tar sands exploitation has already destroyed 170,000 acres of ancient forest in Canada. There is no hope for regrowth.

With tar sands, Canada has no plan to comply with the carbon reduction agreements they signed, and their emissions will only make our climate crisis much, much worse.

78. Give Iraqi Women Rights

Iraqi women's basic rights are being violated and current legislation, customs and rigid social attitudes are preventing women from achieving the equality they deserve.

In matters of custody, divorce and punishment, the Iraqi Penal Code and laws clearly discriminate. The gender inequality extends further than a loss of political rights however, the deeply ingrained social mindsets of those living in Iraq make gender equality a challenge to overcome. Iraq have signed the treaties stating that they will take immediate steps to ensure that women are treated justly.

The treaties state that they are obliged to actively prevent attempts or acts of violence against women. There has been no significant change in women's rights and Iraqi women continue to be mistreated despite these efforts for equality. Not enough has been done and Iraqi authorities are now breaching both the treaties and the basic, universal human rights.

By raising awareness of the issue, hopefully global recognition can be made regarding the true social justice issue at hand. Please sign if you support gender equality and would like more to be done to address the issue.

79. Blue cards for Door to Door Sales, Taxi drivers and anyone dealing with the public

A new law needs to be put in place that all people dealing with the public especially when it comes to those who are approaching your home, should be required to undertake a criminal history check and also have a blue card.

Many people come to your home working for electricity companies and the like wanting your business, they can enter your premises and can be working around children. Especially considering that this is the children's home I believe that we need to enforce strict rules on who is able to come to our premises on a business level including door to door sales, taxi drivers, bus drivers and anyone else who can easily see that you have children.

I believe whole heartedly this needs to change before someone is hired that could be a risk to not only children but to anyone in their home. An international criminal history check needs to be made for those who do not normally reside in Australia also. All businesses requiring entrance to anyone's property should have a blue card and thorough criminal history check!

80. Stop Landlords from renting unlivable properties

Are you tired of slum landlords? Are you sick of seeing eye sores all over this great city? Are you looking for a voice to speak with but can't find the energy? Then here we are. This petition is to give you that voice!

We're determined to be heard! Do we not have the same rights to live comfortably because we rent and don't own? I don't think so. Stand up for the fight against slumlords! Even if you don't rent, this could be you some day!

81. Support Fathers' Rights

Children in father-absent homes are almost four times more likely to be poor. In 2011, 12 percent of children in married-couple families were living in poverty, compared to 44 percent of children in mother-only families.

A study of 1330 children from the PSID showed that fathers who are involved on a personal level with their child schooling increases the likelihood of their child's achievement.

When fathers assume a positive role in their child's education, students feel a positive impact.

82. Help the USDA

Most people eat meat such as pork, chicken, turkey, cow, etc... We also have dairy produce that comes from cows and chickens. But while we're enjoying these foods and drinks, animals in slaughterhouses are being tortured.

Animals are intelligent creatures and don't deserve this torture. The slaughterhouses are also filthy and the meat isn't always healthy. A lot of people die every year from food poisoning.

83. Support Motion 312

PLEASE ALSO SEE:
http://www.lifecanada.org/services/petitions/petition-in-support-of-motion-312

The definition of "human being" is of fundamental importance to the governing of Canadian society and the functioning of the Canadian judicial system. The definition present in the Canadian Criminal Code (under section 223(1)) is potentially outdated, and should be revised in light of more recent medical evidence.

The purpose of Motion 312 is to update this definition, and then petition Parliament to make all necessary legal changes in light of revision, if there are any.

Canadian residents of any age may sign.

Charter of Rights and Freedoms (1982):
Section (1) "...guarantees the rights and freedoms set out in it subject only to such reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society."

If the unborn are persons, abortion reform is a "reasonable limit" to guarantee "rights and freedoms" of all human beings.

Section (7) "Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice."

If the unborn are persons, they must be granted "the right to life", and abortion reform would be necessary to reach such "fundamental justice".

The Canadian Human Rights Act (1985):
Section (2) "...that all individuals should have an opportunity equal with other individuals to make for themselves the lives that they are able and wish to have and to have their needs accommodated, consistent with their duties and obligations as members of society, without being hindered in or prevented from doing so by discriminatory principles...."

If the unborn are human beings, they must be granted "opportunity equal with others to make for themselves...lives". Abortion reform would not be part of "discriminatory principles" against women, but part of ensuring equality in opportunity to live.

If the unborn are persons, then Parliament has the moral duty to give the unborn the right to life. Parliament must, then, also grant pregnant women more federal support, by any just means, so that the child(ren) may be born, and that she does not suffer financially or otherwise.

85. Demand for the Four Lion Rampant Flag to be the Logo on Car Licences in Wales

Baner Tywysogaeth Gwynedd oedd baner y Pedwar Llew yn wreiddiol ond yn dilyn cwymp y Dywysogaeth yn 1283, mabwysiadwyd y faner, yn wreiddiol, gan Owain Llaw Goch ac yna gan Owain Glyndŵr. Roedd y ddau yn ddisgynyddion i dywysogion Gwynedd gyda'r hawl i fabwysiadu'r faner. Newidiwyd y llewod i fod yn rhai 'rampiant' gan Owain Llaw Goch ac yna defnyddiwyd y fersiwn yna o'r faner gan Owain Glyndŵr yn ystod ei Rhyfel fawr Dros Annibyniaeth.

O dan y faner yma bu Cymru'n annibynnol o tua 1403 hyd at tua 1410 a gan mai baner Harri Tudur oedd un y ddraig goch ar gefndir gwyrdd a gwyn, wedi ei hatgyfodi yn 1958, rydym, fel gwladgarwyr, ond yn cydnabod baner y Pedwar Llew Rampiant fel gwir faner genedlaethol Cymru a gan fod cynlluniau ar y gweill gan David Cameron a Llywodraeth Lloegr i osod Jac yr Undeb ar drwyddedau gyrru ym Mhrydain, rydym yn mynnu ein hawliau dinesig i gael Pedwar Llew Rampiant Tywysog Owain Glyndŵr ar drwyddedau gyrru yng Nghymru.

The Four Lions Rampant was, originally, the Four Lions Passive flag of The Royal House of Gwynedd in Snowdonia, North Wales. Following the fall of the Royal House of Gwynedd, it was adoped by the rightful heir, the great warrior Prince, Owain Glyndŵr during his war of Independence 1400 - 1421ish and the 'passive lions' were changed into 'rampant lions' to illustrate that the Cymru (Welsh) were up in arms.

Under this flag, Cymru (Wales) was independent between 1403 - 1410ish and, as the red dragon on a green and white background was the standard of Henry Tudor King of England and was only resurrected in 1958, we as Welsh patriots only recognise the Four Lions Rampant as the true flag of Cymru and as plans are being drawn up by David Cameron to have the Union flag or Crest to appear on "British" driving licences, we demand our civil right to have the Four Lion Rampant flag of the Cymric people's Prince, Prince Owain Glyndŵr on Cymric (Welsh) driving licences.

86. Palestinian Citizens in Israel Have a Right to a Home

Although in summer 2011, Israeli masses protested by the thousands for government solutions to socio-economic issues, specifically the lack of affordable housing, the social justice movement was orchestrated and monopolized by the concerns of the Jewish Israeli middle-class.

In reality, housing issues are the most critical in the Palestinian Arab community, where citizens face systematic discrimination in land ownership, renting and basic services. The Mossawa Center was central in coordinating meetings between Arab community leaders and the Jewish leaders of the socio-economic protest in order to encourage the movement to adopt key demands specific to the Arab community’s needs.

Following the release of the governmental response via the Trachtenberg Committee, it was evident that these demands were not taken seriously.

Last summer was not the first time the Palestinian Arab community’s housing, land and planning issues were brought to the forefront. The international media has intensively covered issues of “disputed land,” especially house demolitions in the occupied Palestinian territories, since the Second Intifada.

In more recent years the international community has also begun to cover the deteriorating situation of the Palestinian Arab Bedouin living in the southern Negev desert. However, it remains understated how common issues of land, housing, and planning are for Palestinian Arab citizens of Israel, including citizens in the North (the Galilee), in the Triangle (the Center) and in mixed cities (Haifa, Akka, Jaffa, Lod, and Ramle). The Or Commission, founded after the events of October 2000, highlighted the housing, land and planning crisis in the Arab community and called on the Israeli government to allocate proportional resources to Arab localities. To this day, the government has not responded to the Commission’s request.

Land, housing, and planning are core issues of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. In Israel, these issues are the main source and indicator of inequalities amongst different strata of the society, especially amongst the Jewish majority and the Arab minority. According to a number of human rights organizations, fair and affordable housing for all citizens is the responsibility of state government. However Israeli Basic Law, the document that stands in place of a written constitution, does not enshrine the “right to adequate housing.” The Supreme Court does not interpret the “right to human dignity,” which is guaranteed under Israeli Basic Law, to include adequate housing.

According to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, “everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing, and medical care and necessary social services” (Article 25.1).

87. Petition for a Referendum on Official Bilingualism in Canada

The Official Languages Act 1969 has never been submitted to the Canadian people for approval. By way of a national referendum, I would like to have a petition circulated that would gather support for such a referendum.

THIS PETITION'S SIGNATURE LIST IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE FOR PUBLIC VIEWING. ONLY THE CREATOR OF THE PETITION WILL BE ABLE TO SEE YOUR NAME & YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION.

THIS CHANGE WAS MADE NECESSARY BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE AFRAID TO REVEAL THEIR IDENTITY TO THE PUBLIC FOR FEAR OF REPERCUSSIONS FROM THOSE WHO SUPPORT THE OFFICIAL LANGUAGES ACT.

WE HOPE THAT THIS CHANGE MIGHT ENCOURAGE MORE SIGNATORIES.

88. Bowen Continuity of Care Petition

WHAT IS CONTINUITY OF CARE??
- during pregnancy (antenatal care)
- during labour and birth (intrapartum care)
- after birth of your baby (postnatal care)

Seeing the same caregiver or small group of caregivers throughout pregnancy, labour and birth and afterwards is called continuity of care.

WHY PROVIDE CONTINUITY OF MIDWIFERY CARE?
Midwifery continuity models are popular with women, provide improved birth and satisfaction outcomes, are cost-effective and are common overseas. For these reasons Australian governments are committed to increasing women's access to these models as outlined in the National Maternity Services Plan and actioned by the Queensland Government with the commitment to provide 10% of public birth care in these models. Continuity models also have advantages in the development and retention of a skilled workforce which is responsive to day-to-day demand.

MIDWIFERY CONTINUITY MODELS
These models provide each woman with care from a known midwife/s, usually to 6 weeks postpartum. To meet the needs of women and be sustainable for midwives, continuity models are innovative and flexible in relation to place of care in widwives' working arrangements. Women with any level of complexity of care, and midwives consult and refer to guidelines and clinical need.

89. Let voters decide the TN Helmet Law

The helmet law in TN was enacted without the voters having a say. This act happens far too often and I want to change the way laws are made, repealed or changed.

I hope to have your support on this to let the government know that TN is our state, our government, our life, our right, and finally our choice.
