Homosexual couples in the UK now adopt one child in every ten

Homosexual adoption has rocketed in the past four years, with one in ten adoptive children now being placed in same-sex households.

Government figures show that 460 children were adopted by same-sex couples in England in the twelve months up to March this year, compared to 160 for the 12 months ending March 2012 – a rise of more than 180 per cent.

The increasing prevalence of same-sex adoption comes despite evidence that children suffer when deprived of a mother or a father.

The figures show that, between April 2015 and March 2016, 200 children were placed with male or female couples in civil partnerships.

Seventy children were placed with couples in same-sex marriages.
