Remove the referral to "sexual orientation" which can harm children, okay

Ref; The proposal to include in legislation an addendum to allow "SEXUAL ORIENTATION" :-  The problem here is that someone mischievous has ADDED the term "sexual orientation" into a proposal that sets out limitations on who may adopt children. The childrens needs, both physical, psychological - and I believe also spiritual, (as mankind is a spiritual orientated being) must be paramount: This means that to subject children OF ANY GENDER to be in a situation that forces them into an unbalanced parent gender setting, is in fact a form of CHILD ABUSE, as they are denied the BALANCE of normal family upbringing. This can bring not only disturbed emotional patterns, but social problems later in life. While agreeing that adoption must exist for otherwise NATURAL parents who are for medical reasons unable to PROCREATE; same-sex unions must accept that they chose to enter such lyfestyle KNOWING that they cannot naturally pro-create, as that is the way HUMANS are designed. We are designed for a primary number of PURPOSES, one of which is to procreate with an oppoosite-gender partner. While some may not agree that God exists, the only answer to why marriage between 2 opposite-gender partners exists, is that HUMANITY was designed to REPRODUCE naturally, and most people read that GOD designed it, and is the INVENTOR as it were, of such social necessity. Homosexual "couples" also have as individual "gay" humans, the propensity and drive to try and coerce people to their sexual orientation and lyfestyle beliefs or feelings: This means that any child will be subjected to a one-sided point of view, thus denied the BALANCE of natural Parenthood, which again, is defined as a form of child abuse. Please consider this very carefully, and do not bow to MINORITY PRESSURE against the will and good reason of the MAJORITY of voters. With respect, REMOVE the CLAUSE "Sexual orientation" as an ABOMINATION to the vast majoruity of good voters outside!
