Czech gay parents will be able to adopt soon

The Czech government has approved a proposed amendment to the law which would enable gay and lesbian couples to adopt their partner’s biological child. The proposal was supported by the ruling Social Democrats and ANO, but opposed by the Christian Democrats.

Deputy Minister for Human Rights Martina Štěpánková told Radio Prague, “We do not have an exact number but our estimate is that there are now about one thousand children living in same-sex families.”
