Abstract

The authors provide an overview of existing evidence on the issue of public opinion on gay and lesbian family rights. They begin by providing some background to the issue of public opinion on marriage and parenthood equality, including what evidence has been generated to date. And then details are provided about the measures and assumptions that inform our analysis, present our findings and end with a discussion of the findings and the implications of these for sexual and reproductive justice.
