During the past two weeks, Parliamentarians have been debating legislation to establish a people’s vote to determine the definition marriage. The Turnbull Government made this an election promise and proposes to hold the plebiscite on February 11.

During debate this week, the member for Robertson, Lucy Wicks, raised some important points which are usually swept under the carpet in the same-sex marriage debate.

“Children, wherever possible, need a mother and a father”, she said. Watch a short clip from her speech here and please share it with your friends. It is so important we all have the courage to respectfully speak up, as Lucy does, in support of keeping marriage between one man and one woman.
