Adoption By Homosexuals

EDM number 1429 in 1989-90, proposed by Harry Greenway on 19/10/1990.

That this House unreservedly condemns the actions of Newcastle City Council in removing a handicapped boy from his foster mother to be adopted by a lesbian couple; utterly rejects the abhorrent claim by the City Council that the decision is in the best interests of the child; reaffirms the position of the traditional family unit as the most secure and stable means of raising all children, especially the most impressionable and vulnerable; and believes that the placing of young children with lesbian couples is not suitable to the needs or the best interests of these children and despite the protestations of the homosexual lobby, never will be.

This motion has been signed by a total of 12 MPs.
