France’s lower house of parliament approved a bill on Tuesday to legalize homosexual “marriage” and allow same-sex couples to adopt children. The French National Assembly approved the measure in a 329-to-229 vote.
France’s upper house must also approve the bill, and it is expected to do so in April. Both houses of the legislature are controlled by Socialists and their allies. If the bill becomes law, by spring France will join about a dozen other nations that allow same-sex “marriage.”
