Statement TUV Leader Jim Allister:-
“Today’s ruling by the Court of Appeal in favour of ‘gay adoption’ is a most retrograde step, which further undermines the proven worth and centrality of the traditional family unit in our society.
“Children benefit the most from the influence of a father and a mother and whereas many single parents do a remarkable job, the promotion and facilitation of children being brought up under a same sex relationship, as if it were the norm, is, in my view, wrong. But, this is where pursuit of a perverse ‘equality agenda’ has led us.
“I trust the Minister will appeal this decision to the Supreme Court.”
