French parliament backs main clause in gay marriage law

Published: 02.03.13, 01:08 / Israel News

The French parliament on Saturday adopted the main clause of a reform bill that would allow same-sex marriage and grant gay couples the right to adopt children.

 

Deputies voted 249-97 to back the clause eliminating opposite gender as a condition of the right to marriage. The draft law, the first major social reform of Francois Hollande's presidency, has sparked major protests in France. Several hundred thousand people massed at the Eiffel Tower in Paris last month to protest against the plan. (Reuters)
