Disabled people have come out to protest against an anti-LGBT Japanese MP, who said gay and lesbian couples are unproductive because they can’t have children. According to KYODO news agency, the group took offense to the comments because it also affects people who can’t have children due to illness or disability. During a press conference at the health and welfare ministry in Tokyo, the group gathered to explain their protest. “I cannot have children because of the effects of [my] medication, but I don’t believe that human value is decided by the fact of whether one can have children or not,” said Hiroko Uchiyama, 43, of Hachioji in western Tokyo, who suffers from the complications of an illness.
