Gay unions Bill ‘a step to legal incest’ | Adelaide Now

Some argued the Bill could lead to other unions being recognised.

“There’s absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t open marriage up to incestuous relationships, any consenting adult relationships, relationships between groups of men, groups of women or whatever.
