The right to lesbian parenthood.
  1. G Hanscombe

    Abstract

    The author argues that the minority homosexual section of our population--a larger minority than, for example, the ethnic minorities section--is more often than not excluded by the 'helping professions' from the right to be parents. The author appeals to the lack of scientific data supporting such exclusion and asks that homosexual parents and their children receive the same care from our institutions as other parents and children. Some instances of lack of care are cited. The paper was presented to the 1983 annual conference of the London Medical Group, 'Human Rights in Medicine'.
