“None of the petitioners tendered evidence to prove denial of the rights to health on the basis of their orientation. Only general statements which do not meet the burden of proof.

“On right to non-discrimination, the Constitution only prohibits unfair discrimination. In this case, the language of section 162 targets “Any person” and not a particular group with a particular sexual orientation, as claimed by the petitions,” the judges ruled.
