  1. Abandoned children are dying every day in the world for lack of someone to help them and to stop anybody from honestly helping them is a crime.

  2. Good news. It’s not right that LGBT parents are discriminated against like this while an opposite sex parent can adopt their partner’s child.

    this may mean that portugal will have to offer adoption even though as of now it does not. i always thought this was odd as they have had marriage equality for a few years now

    Well done, ladies. I hope they all have a very happy life together!

    1. A great decision by the ECHR! It looks like we, in Northern Ireland, will also have to go to the ECHR in order to gain the same-sex marriage rights that gay people will be able to enjoy in the rest of the UK. Hopefully they will make the right decision then too. Actually, I don’t think adoption is legal for gay couples in Northern Ireland and the ban still exists for gay people in Northern Ireland to give blood so we are far behind the rest of the UK in terms of equality with LGBT rights in the rest of the UK. There’s much (and probably more that I’m unaware of) for the ECHR to help us with to gain equal citizenship.

    This is a joke. As if Austria cares about abuse of children or human rights! I suggest you google Schlesinger Twins in Vienna to see the depths they have sunk to.

    Where are human rights in Austria for the Schlesinger twins?
