The SA government is scheduled to begin debating the controversial Statutes Amendment (Relationships) Bill in the coming week. It proposes to give "relationship rights" to homosexual couples.
Mrs Ros Phillips, of Festival of Light (FOL) SA says "The Relationships Bill would delete the word 'spouse' from over 80 SA laws, replacing it with 'domestic partner'. Adoption and IVF laws are the only exceptions, but SA Attorney-General Michael Atkinson said in his second reading speech on 15/9/04 that further amendments to allow same-sex couples to adopt and use IVF 'remain under consideration'.
IF this is a concern to you as a South Australian, contact your MPs. If you have friends/family in SA, contact or send this link to them.
Only a short, 2-line letter is required:
1. Ask your MPs to oppose the Statutes Amendment Bill.
2. Request a reply so that you can tell all your friends (or neighbours, or club, or playgroup, or church...)
Even a reason is not strictly necessary; the purpose of your email/letter is to be counted.
