Parents of both sexes are best


STEPHEN Morgan (Letters, Aug 24) unfairly accused me of prejudice because I defend the rights of children, wherever possible, to have both a mother and father. No one disputes that same-sex parents cherish their children just as married parents do. However, research shows that, all things being equal, children do best in a family structure comprising their two married biological parents. It’s not prejudice, but compassion and common sense to insist on laws and policies which maximise the likelihood that children have a mum and a dad. Alan Baker, Carina Heights
