In this programme she said:
"I believe IT ONLY MAKES COMMON SENSE THAT LESBIANS ARE BETTER PARENTS. We know that children flourish most when they are brought up in a loving and stable environment. And research has shown that it's predominantly the female parent that provides that stability.The Reverend Ferguson added:
IF YOU HAVE TWO WOMEN BRINGING UP IT'S JUST COMMON SENSE THAT YOUR GOING TO GET DOUBLE THE DOSE OF THAT LOVE AND STABILITY THAT IS SO IMPORTANT.
And common sense has been backed up by scientific research. The research has clearly shown that CHILDREN BROUGHT UP BY TWO WOMEN HAVE FEWER BEHAVIOURAL PROBLEMS, FEWER PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEMS AND THEIR SELF CONFIDENCE AND THEIR SELF-ESTEEM IS MUCH HIGHER.
IT'S UP TO US TO EDUCATE OUR CHILDREN THAT FAMILIES COME IN ALL SHAPES AND SIZES, NOT JUST A MUMMY AND A DADDY, 2.4 children and a Red Setter!"
"Yes, CHILDREN OF LESBIAN PARENTS ARE LIKELY TO BE TEASED AND BULLIED."And:
"I myself have been a registered foster parent for many years."More here...
