In the face of far-right prime minister Georgia Meloni’s ongoing assault on LGBTQ+ rights in Italy, lesbian moms in the country have won a small victory as a court in the Veneto region rejected the government’s attempt to erase the names of non-biological mothers from their children’s birth certificates. Last June, a state prosecutor in Padova associated with the ruling Brothers of Italy party called for the cancellation of 33 birth certificates listing non-biological mothers of children of lesbian couples. The documents were issued as far back as 2017. The legal ramifications for those mothers could be far-reaching if the couples separate or the biological mother dies or becomes incapacitated.
