With debate continuing today in the NSW Lower House about Independent MP Clover Moore’s same-sex adoption bill, ACL Managing Director Jim Wallace has appeared on two national television programs to explain why the legislation is not in the best interests of children.

Last night Jim appeared on Network Ten’s ‘7PM Project’ and answered questions from a panel including newsreader Carrie Bickmore and comedians Dave Hughes and Charlie Pickering on the topic. Please click here to watch the video.

This morning at 7.10 am Jim appeared on Network Seven’s ‘Sunrise’ program and took part in a debate with gay activist Rodney Croome on the topic ‘Should same-sex couples adopt?’ Please click here to watch the video.

A conscience vote on the bill is expected to be taken today in the Lower House, after debate continued late into the night yesterday. ACL’s NSW Director David Hutt watched the debate from the gallery – something which was noted by one MP, with another MP who is against the legislation quoting from an ACL letter to MPs on the topic.

It is important that Christians continue to make known to NSW parliamentarians our concerns about the legislation – which would deny adopted children the benefit and role modeling of both a mother and a father. If you live in NSW please go to our ‘Kids Rights Count’ campaign at www.kidsrightscount.org.au and let your political representatives know about your concerns with the bill. This campaign needs to continue strongly, as even if the legislation is passed by the Lower House it can still be defeated in the Upper House.
