The level of concern over the NSW same-sex adoption bill has increased to such an extent that a ‘Kids Rights Count’ campaign website assisting people to email politicians crashed last night coping with demand.

To date more than 40,000 emails have been sent to NSW politicians via the Australian Christian Lobby’s website from people asking politicians to put the best interests of children first and reject the legislation.

ACL NSW Director David Hutt said that the website server crashed last night trying to keep up with the number of people seeking to urge their political representatives to reject the bill.

“We have had an overwhelming response from people wanting to make a stand for kids’ rights. It’s great to see so many people speaking out against a bill that puts the rights of adults ahead of the rights of children. MPs are on notice that the community does not support this legislation and will be looking closely at their voting record,” Mr Hutt said.
