Speaking at the World Congress of Families in a fortnight…

UPDATE: AUDIO of talk HERE

I will be part of a forum at the Congress on Thursday 16th May, speaking on the need to preserve the objective, natural meaning of marriage. My sub-topic: “The harms to children of legalising same-sex marriage”. Please come along! Then I will be part of a panel on related subjects Friday 17th May. Details in today’s WCF media release:

MEDIA RELEASE:

For immediate release 3rd May 2013 Where do babies come from? Redefining marriage ignores basic truths.

Half a million French wave the flag for “paternity, maternity, equality”

Spectacular rally in Paris this week, with hundreds of thousands of French families and activists and even some gay groups objecting to the demolition of the meaning of marriage, and to the abolition of a child’s birthright to both a mother and father. Bigger than the Grande Armee of Napoleon – let’s hope it shakes the Socialist President into sanity.

Interestingly, the passion is as much, or more, about the legal right for same-sex couples to adopt or use surrogacy / IVF to obtain a child.

Motion to make the Baby Bonus ‘kick in’ when the costs kick in

In my absence (a bit crook late yesterday, so I did not stay for the final day of the LNP Convention) thanks to Bec, one of our Young LNP delegates, for making the case this morning for this small but helpful adjustment to the federal ‘Baby Bonus’ policy. It passed without any opposition. And if it is implemented under an Abbott government, it can stand in tribute to Elise and James, patients of mine (and family friends) who first showed me how difficult it is to make the preparations for a first baby when you are short of money.
