On the back of the recent Say Yes fact check, we noticed something on the leaked anti-marriage-equality leaflet authorised by former Liberal Party MP Chris Miles.
It’s another claim that “married biological parents have a better record for providing safety and development of healthy, well-adjusted adult children” and that such parents “minimise abuse and neglect of children”. The leaflet (see below) then cites a report to the US Congress by the US Department of Health and Human Services.

And you guessed it: It’s the NIS-4 study being misused again. We recently sought comment from NIS-4 author Dr Andrea Sedlak, PhD, who was concerned about the research being misused in relation to LGBTI parenting and relationships.
And it’s not the first time that Chris Miles has authored and distributed an anti-gay leaflet!
