Kids need a mum and a dad says Prime Minister

‘Prime Minister John Howard says he is opposed to gay couples adopting children and heterosexual adoption is a benchmark society should maintain.

But he said that didn’t mean gay and lesbian people had no affection for children.

The Victorian Law Reform Commission has recommended to the Victorian Parliament that gay couples be allowed to adopt and lesbians have access to IVF treatment.

Mr Howard said today he believed children should ideally have a mother and a father.

“It gives children the best opportunity in life,” he said on Southern Cross radio.’
