Scots only - Adoption Bill

From marrog,

Please could you urgently email your MSPs about the Adoption and Children (Scotland) Bill.

Last minute amendments have been submitted which would prevent same-sex couples jointly adopting. The amendments were submitted by Roseanna Cunningham of the SNP. The Roman Catholic Church have emailed their campaign list, asking people to urge their MSPs to support the amendments.

It is vital that our voices are heard too!

The debate on the amendments is this Thursday, so please could you email your MSPs as soon as possible.

Everyone has one constituency MSP and seven regional (list) MSPs, and you can find out who they are by entering your postcode on this webpage:

http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/msp/index.htm

If you click on each MSP's name, and then on Contact details, you can find their email addresses. If you only have time to contact one MSP, please contact your constituency MSP, but the more the better!

Please ask your MSPs to vote against Roseanna Cunningham's amendments to the Adoption and Children (Scotland) Bill, this Thursday. The amendments would prevent same-sex couples from applying to adopt jointly.




If you want to check the amendments out yourself, the bill as it stands is here and the proposed amendments are here.

Realistically, I don't think the amendments have much chance of getting through, because after the main reading MSPs backed the general principles of the bill by 103 votes to eight, with eight abstentions. But still, it's worth making your voice heard.

THe Nats (or some of their number) have occasionally promoted RC church amendments. The same thing happened on the s 28 amendments IIRC.
