Australian Skeptics Inc stödjer samkönade äktenskap

Inläggav Nemesis » sön 17 sep 2017, 00:45

Australian Skeptics Inc, VoF:s systerförening i (du gissade rätt) Australien, har nyligen uttalat sig för att samkönade äktenskap ska tillåtas i landet. Inte den typen av frågor som skeptikerorganisationer brukar uttala sig om, men de motiverar sin ståndpunkt, och med tanke på att VoF går i prideparader runtom i landet varje år så antar jag att VoF implicit har en liknande ståndpunkt.

Australian Skeptics Inc (ASI), a group dedicated to countering pseudo-scientific claims from a responsible scientific viewpoint, has released a statement looking at the science-based evidence used to support the competing views for the upcoming postal ballot on same-sex marriage (marriage equality).

ASI concludes that the scientific evidence base for the No campaign is less convincing than that presented for the Yes case. According to the majority of peer-reviewed studies, there is no intrinsic damage to children of same-sex marriages (or even same-sex relationships without marriage).

While the postal ballot is about the right of same-sex couples to get married, the subject of children in LGBTQI families has been drawn into the conversation by both sides. There have been specific claims that cite a body of evidence. As part of a wider consideration of these positions, Australian Skeptics Inc has examined the merits of these claims. Are the Yes and No campaigns drawing from good evidence to back their arguments?

Australien alltså... Ju mörkare och kallare det blir i Sverige, desto hellre vill man bo därborta. :D
