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. AL­FRED ROBERT ARTHUR
