Three judges in Britain have ruled against the appeal of a mother whose children were adopted by a homosexual couple. The state took the children because the woman and her mate, the children’s father, are alcoholics.
Officials in Camden, a borough in London, had said homosexuals could adopt the children. The three-judge panel, two of them leftist women, said the borough council did the right thing because the woman would not, most likely, stop drinking.
After Camden Council removed the children from the mother, who was “highly educated” though an alcoholic, she and the father of the children protested because the Council picked a homosexual couple for the adoption.
According to the Camden New Journal, “[t]he eminent judge, Dame Janet Smith, told the court on Tuesday that the mother and the boys’ father had been “distressed” to learn of the sexual orientation of the prospective adopters.”
But the judge said of the gay couple: “The evidence was all one way. This couple are suitable adoptive parents and there is no specific reason to think that the placement might fail.”
The gay couple had, she added, been through a rigorous selection process and Camden was convinced they will “provide a secure and loving home” for the children.
The newspaper reported that the mother did not protest the children being adopted, that she “did not appeal against that and only launched her battle to revoke the order in April this year after finding out that her children’s prospective adopters were gay.”
So although she was not in control of her drinking, she was in control of her moral faculties; she did not want homosexuals raising her children. But the leftist court plowed ahead, the newspaper reported: “The judge … said the case revealed ‘a sad human story’ of parents who met at a detox clinic but who had never managed to conquer their mutual dependence on alcohol and lost their children as a result.”
