In this interview on ABC Radio Adelaide, 16 March 2015, a gay family-law barrister rings up to support Australian Marriage Forum President Dr David van Gend. They agree that a child should have, where possible, a mother and a father. The barrister, 22 years in a single-sex relationship, says:
As a gay man in a single-sex relationship for 22 years, I find the concept of bringing children into this relationship selfish and obscene.
You bring children into a relationship where they have the best possible opportunity of being nurtured… by a mother and a father.
