MARRIAGE, PARENTHOOD AND CHILDREN

The SFP does not support the use of NHS resources for any fertility related treatment apart from for a man and woman in a long term stable relationship. There must be an intention of being brought up by a mother and father.

We disagree with government-funded Stonewall’s “co-parenting” advice (available through the NHS website). For example, it suggests children be conceived by adults, each of whom is already in a sexual relationship with another person. Adults should not choose to bring children into arrangements without a single stable home.

Preference should be given to married couples, man and wife, in fostering and adoption decisions.

We will oppose any further attempts by the state to redefine marriage, such as to include multi-partner or incestuous relationships.
