European Court of Human Rights on Lesbian’s Right to Adopt

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

The European Court of Human Rights recently issued this Grand Chamber Judgment in the case of E.B. v. France, finding that France discriminated against a lesbian woman in denying her petition to adopt a child. Specifically the Court found that France violated the petitioner’s rights under Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights which guarantees respect for private and family life.
