Adoption Rights For Euro Gays

Good news from Europe:
(Strasbourg, France) In a ruling that could have far-reaching consequences the European Court of Human Rights said Tuesday that the exclusion of individuals to adopt children simply because of their sexual orientation is discriminatory and in breach of the European Convention of Human Rights.


"Henceforth, France will no longer be able to refuse approval to an unmarried person on the grounds of their homosexuality," Mecary said in a statement to the media. "The same thing will be true for other member countries of the Council of Europe which allow adoption by unmarried people."
