France Chided For Lesbian Adoption Disc.

France got a judicial spanking yesterday. The European Court of Human Rights ruled that the nation discriminated against a lesbian teacher for denying her adoption claim.

A French court decided last year that the single woman couldn’t have her dream child, particularly because of a lack of a “paternal referant”.

The European Court said, however, that since heterosexual singles can adopt, there’s no reason why the unnamed lesbian should have been refused.
