TheFederal Government is moving to stop gay couples from adopting children from overseas with legislation that would deny the children visas.
The reason for John Howard wanting it blocked -"Children ideally should be brought up by a mother and a father who are married. That's the ideal."
Alright - so if you're not married or hetero, dont even THINK about having children... This makes me so mad. I know heaps of gay couples, and wish that I was brought up in a household as loving, caring and supportive as theirs.
It really sickens me that the Government is trying to close the loop-holes to allow GLBTQ folk the same rights as everyone else.
What next? We all have to wear a pink triangle on our jacket pocket? Oops, thats already been done....
What about obese adoption? Should people be allowed to adopt if they are obese? Or anorexic? Or a Satanist? Or a single parent? Or a redneck? Or a Liberal voter?
Conversely, California promotes GLBTQ for carers and parents. Apparently we are loving and caring people - who knew???
