Leading Australian psychiatrist claims that same-sex marriage poses a health risk to society

One of Australia's leading psychiatrists, Professor Kuravilla George, who is the State Government's equal opportunities champion and deputy chief psychiatrist in Victora, has joined forces with 150 doctors lobbying the Federal Government to ban same-sex marriage.

The group of doctors, who wrote in a letter to the Senate's inquiry into marriage equality, say that it was "important for the future health of our nation" to retain the definition of marriage as being between a man and woman.
