ACL is calling on supporters in New South Wales to make a stand for kids’ rights, today launching the "Kids' Rights Count" campaign at www.kidsrightscount.org.au.

In just a few weeks, the NSW Parliament will hold a conscience vote on whether to allow same-sex couples to adopt a child. This would deny kids the right to both a mother and a father’s love.

Many children who have been adopted already feel different from other kids. Denying them the right to at least be placed in an adoptive home with both a mother and a father will not make things any easier for them.

At the Kids' Rights Count campaign site you can find more information about the Adoption Amendment (Same Sex Couples) Bill 2010 and take action to protect children’s rights.

We have a responsibility to speak up for those who don’t have a voice. Please visit www.kidsrightscount.org.au to email your Member of Parliament. Please also consider calling your MP or asking to meet him or her to discuss your opposition to the proposed law.

Thank you for your support.
