Slovenian parliament approves law redefining marriage and allowing same-sex adoption
LJUBLJANA, March 4, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The nation of Slovenia has passed a legislation legalizing same-sex “marriage” and allowing homosexuals to adopt.
Parliament approved an amendment to the country's family and marriage law on Monday by a vote of 51-28.
Under the new legislation, marriage is defined as the union of two people, regardless of their gender.
While the vote was taking place, several thousand protesters gathered in front of the building to express their opposition to allowing homosexuals to adopt children – carrying banners bearing messages like "Children Are At Stake" and "Do Not Destroy The Family," according to the Slovenian news service STA.
Opponents of redefining the family say they will seek to place the new amendment before the people of Slovenia in a popular referendum.
The bill must be signed by the country's president, Borut Pahor, before it becomes law.

In 2006, Slovenia created registered partnerships for same-sex couples that gave them rights to inherit the partner's property and pension, but imposed restrictions on same-sex "weddings" and denied homosexuals the right to adopt children.
