SOME No Vote proponents keep rolling out an old chestnut of claiming that “children have a basic right to parents”.
They should be well aware of the existence of orphans, widows’ children, widowers’ children, children from broken homes and children of other single parents.
It may be true that some 96,000 WA children are being raised by grandparents who are not necessarily in pairs.
And there is some use of donor sperm by couples.
Perhaps the affected No Voters will come to terms with reality if they take the blinkers off and catch a glimpse of the real world where the humans live.
