Italian Judges Rule in Favour of Gay Parents




An Italian court has ruled that two gay men can both be recognised as the legal father of surrogate twins even though only one of the men is biologically related to the children.

The Judges argued that parenthood cannot solely be defined on a biological basis, and campaigners are hopeful that this ruling will set a precedent for future cases. 

It comes less than a year after the Italian Government legalised civil partnerships.

The couple at the centre of the case were not named, but it is known that the children – who are seven years old – were born in Canada with the help of a surrogate mother.

Surrogacy is currently illegal in Italy
