To grow up to be well-balanced adults, children need role models of both sexes. Boys without fathers under-achieve, especially since there are now fewer male teachers in primary schools.

We are a 'Christian' country - even if few go to church, our values remain based on Christian teaching. Two parents are axiomatic - 'Honour thy father and mother', invokes the Fifth Commandment.

Children raised by gay parents are offered only one partnership model and are therefore (some argue) more likely to be gay.

Support: 53%
President Obama said recently that loving families come in many forms.

There is a shortage of adoptive parents. The 'family', whether gay or straight, is better than the foster-care system

Lesbian couples are permitted to have children through artificial insemination. The record is that such couples provide loving homes and raise well-balanced children.

Parents - form relationships that are more stable than many heterosexual marriages, thus giving adopted children a secure emotional home.
