Dutch bill would ease way to legal parenting for lesbians
THE HAGUE—A proposed Dutch law would make it easier for the partner of a lesbian mother to become the legal parent of a child born into the relationship, the country's justice ministry said Tuesday.
Currently, they to receive permission from a judge to legally adopt the child.
If approved by parliament, the law would allow the mother to chose whether her lesbian partner or the child's biological father should be the legal co-parent, ministry spokesman Wiebe Alkema told Agence France-Presse.
The Netherlands has been at the forefront of gay liberation for many years, and became the first country to legalize gay marriage, in 2001.
