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.
