In the absence of natural parentage, it is child abuse to deny a child the right to a father and a mother. It is to neglect a child's welfare and best interests. Children require and deserve paternal love and a male role model as well as maternal love and role model for their personal development in order to grow up with a healthy attitude towards love and relationships. To adopt or 'buy' children in order to fulfill the personal desire of the adopter, rather than the needs of a child for a loving mother and father figure, is to turn the child into a product or a commodity.
|Westminster: The seat of abused power|
A Government that deliberately legislates to penalise those who seek the best interests of children to be served is a Government worthy only of the scorn and contempt of its population. Such a Government has lost all legitimacy. Such a Government should be removed, since if it cannot be trusted to care for the welfare of children, it cannot be trusted to protect or defend the welfare or interests of any of its citizens.
