Slovenes To Vote For Equal Rights

Written by

Sunday, the Slovenes could vote in favor of the adoption and the tax equality for gays and lesbians.

The Slovene government proposed a referendum concerning the new legislation of the family which almost gives equal rights to gay and lesbian couples.

So if the Slovenes decide to vote in favor of this new legislation, same-sex couples would have the same legal statute as married opposite sex couples. No more inheritance issues and a woman could also adopt the child of her partner.

Of course, as usual, religious leaders are opposed to any change.

Ales Primc, leader of the conservatives who is also at the origin of this referendum, said: "It is necessary to reject the law on the family because it does not respect the basic rights of the child."

I wonder what he wants to say by "basic rights of the child."

The good news, unfortunately for Primc, is that a survey shows that 60% of the population would be in favor of this new legislation.

If the Slovenes vote in its favor, I would dream to see the face of this Ales Primc, not you?
