Catholic Care Appeal: Children seeking adoption outweigh the impact of preventing gay couples using its service

The charity was appearing before Mr Justice Sales at the tribunal on Wednesday in its fourth appeal against a ruling preventing the charity from changing its objects in order to stop gay couples from using its adoption service.
