Victoria's deputy chief psychiatrist joined forces with doctors lobbying the Federal Government to ban same-sex marriage.
Twenty-two Victorian GPs, anaesthetists, obstetricians, palliative care specialists and psychiatrists, including Prof Kuravilla George, have joined 150 colleagues interstate to argue gay marriage poses a health risk to society.
In a letter to the Senate's inquiry into marriage equality, the group wrote that it was "important for the future health of our nation" to retain the definition of marriage as being between a man and woman.
"We submit the evidence is clear that children who grow up in a family with a mother and father do better in all parameters than children without," they wrote.
The doctors also said they were concerned legalising gay marriage would "normalise" homosexual behaviour and the "health consequences" linked with it, such as HIV and syphilis.

Muslims would just kill homosexuals.
Taking into consideration broken clocks tell the correct time twice each day, maybe “spread the other cheek” is not a good public policy.
In your unabridged Oxford Dictionaries, the word “faggotry” denotes the bundling of steel to be hammered or rolled together.
Mammalian evolution is entirely heterosexual.
Monogamy is not required for evolution, monogamy is a tenet of religion.
To prohibit polyandry and polygyny is an ecclesiastic rule of law.
To establish an ecclesiastic standard of monogamy for homosexuals is nothing but RELIGIOUS FAGGOTRY.
Democrats live in a fantasy world where fairies wave magic wands over their anus and babies materialize out of thin air.
