Poland to veto EU recognition of same-sex parents, says justice ministry

12/09/2022 | Notes From Poland

Poland will block European Union proposals to ensure that the rights of same-sex parents and their children are legally recognised in all of the bloc’s member states, says a deputy justice minister. On Wednesday, the European Commission adopted a proposal to harmonise rules on recognising parenthood across the EU. Currently, certain parental rights derive from national laws, rather than being standardised across the bloc. While in many member states, same-sex couples have the right to be recognised as the parents of a child, that is not the case in Poland, which has been ranked as the EU’s worst country for LGBT people for the last three years by ILGA-Europe, a Brussels-based NGO.
