Slovenia To Vote On Adoption

Today Slovenia will hold a national referendum on a bill that would further restrict the adoption rights on same-sex couples.
Under the current legislation, same-sex married couples have no right to adopt children from a third party, but it allows gays to adopt children of their partners. The Civil Initiative for Family and Children's Rights movement has been arguing that homosexual married couples should not receive adoption rights at all. By February, the group with the support of the Catholic Church secured over 40,000 signatures necessary for a national referendum on the issue.
Polls indicate that the bill will pass.
