Sorry, had to rant about this.
This should be reported.

I have reported it to the government.

Me, too. Link below. Suggest it doesn't meet their 'petition standards'. You can ask for a reply.

Nye Bevan, 'the NHS will exist for only as long as the people fight for it'...or something like that.

A different fear that I have is that whenever someone (who opposes the petition) makes a comment or even just dislikes it is, it is often shown on their own facebook, so it is unwittingly being shared by them and giving it a far larger audience than it may have had.

You can see on the petitions page where most of the signatures originate from. Not quite reached the mainland in full force yet, give it a few more days  >:( :(

It's the capitalisation of One Man and One Women that really made me curious; are they pervs or something else?

(They are about to have an election in NI. The leader of the DUP is corrupt. This is an attempt at reminding the party faithful who the 'real enemy' are, ie the gays and women who want terminations. They aren't expecting it to change anything, it's just a rallying call and an attempt to shift focus from the missing millions.)

Maybe it's saying that they didn't mean harem! LOL!!

Unfortunately anybody can set up a petition nowadays and that sometimes mean that this happens. Democracy? Hm, it is good if wise people rule not everyone. At first I was shocked to see something like this but then, it won't have any power at all. Though it is good to be vigilant because laws are very fragile - reproductive rights etc.

I'm pretty sure it wasn't one man and one woman in the Bible.

Or One Man and One Woman.

If God didn't fall out with Moses over it, I can't see why She would get the hump now.
