“Parliament should not deny adoption rights” – Malta Communist Party
The Malta Communist Party appeals to the government to maintain adoption rights as an integral part of the law on civil union. Members of Parliament who are pushing their moralist agenda are doing so unjustly. They are using discriminatory language against same sex couples who are already raising children of their own.
“This year, Portugal's parliament handed same-sex couples the right to adopt the children or foster children of one partner, a partial victory for equality campaigners”.
“The Commissioner for Children is obliged to stop all discriminatory language used in Parliament with reference to statements implying that children raised by same sex couples are being raised in an unhealthy or unfit environment,” stated the Communist Party of Malta.
