Brits say nay to gay marriage, but not same-sex parenting.
The British government has raised eyebrows over plans to relax the law so that gay couples can adopt children.
This week at Westminster, Labour’s Shadow Children’s Secretary Katherine O’Brien tabled a Commons debate on the legislation.
The motion stated that it is “wrong to exclude same-sex couples from the law on adoption.”
But some UK MPs say the law should stay the same as it was before the change of the law.
Equality Minister Jo Swinson told us what she thought about the debate on gay adoption.
‘LGBT Is No Top-Down Story,’ she said. ‘Lots of people want to come and adopt. And there’s a lot of campaigns by gay couples to come here and adopt.’
