Each child has the God-ordained right to know and be parented by both their biological parents. Genesis 2:18-24 Ephesians 6:4
1. Each child has the right to be parented by his/her biological parents, unless this threatens the safety of the child. [Articles 7, 9 – United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child]
2. Each biological parent has the right and obligation to parent his/her biological child, unless this threatens the safety of the child. [Articles 7, 9, 18]
3. The above two rights override the lifestyle choices of the biological parents. [Article 18]
4. Where circumstances dictate that either of the biological parents cannot fulfill their parenting duties, the child has a right to a positive role model based on that biological parent. [Articles 20, 21]
We, the undersigned, humbly ask that, for the sake of all Australian children, the Australian Federal government maintain the definition of marriage as it is, that is, between one man and one woman.
