    DELIBERATLEY creating a child to be placed in a homosexual relationship was irresponsible, Liberal backbencher Stuart Robert told Federal parliament last night, 23, 10, 08.

    Mr Robert was speaking on a bill that changers many federal laws to remove discrimination against same-sex couples.

    The Opposition while not opposing it, has moved an amendment to ensure it doesn't devalue marriage or harm the rights of children.

    Mr Robert said that a study in Norway and Sweden had found gay males union were 50% more likely to break up within the first eight years, and lesbian unions were 167 % more likely.

    He said the Bill removed the assumption that a child was born from a union between a male and female.

    "I believe deliberately creating a child to be placed in a homosexual relationship is irresponsible", Mr Roberts said.

    Well one of my relationships has been going since 1991, and the other since 1999. Looks like I've beaten the odds, twice.

    I also have a loving home to bring a child into. I'm also a qualified youth and child worker too.
