Spain Clamps Down on Same-Sex Adoption

Mon 30th Dec 2013
Spain Clamps Down on Same-Sex Adoption

Towards the start of 2013, the Russian Government took steps to ban the adoption of Russian children from other countries who had legalised same-sex marriage - regardless of the sexuality of the would-be parents.

Despite Spain falling into the category of countries to openly support gay marriage, in the coming weeks Mariano Rajoy's Partido Popular Government will sign an official accord with the Russian Government to deny same-sex couples the opportunity to adopt Russian children.

Pro-Putin Magazine "Voice of Russia" also claims that Sweden, Israel and the USA are preparing to follow suit.

Spain's previous PSOE Socialist administration legalised same-sex marriage in June 2005, and following on from the PP Government's U-turn on the 2010 abortion reform, it looks likely that an the right-wing government may consider a similar move in the future.

This has absolutely NOTHING to do with the child - but EVERYTHING to do with Euros being used for investment. Rajoy is devoid of any form of Principles.
