KDH wants constitution to define marriage
15 Jan 2014 Flash News
The opposition Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) is lobbying for marriage to be laid down as solely the union of one man and one woman in the constitution.
“Marriage, parenthood and the family are under the protection of the law. Special protection of children and youth is guaranteed,” the constitution states.
Representatives of the Iniciatíva Inakosť civic association which promotes the rights of non-heterosexual citizens and the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual and intersexual citizens, wrote in a press release that the KDH’s proposal is a praiseworthy and legitimate political goal, but they are sorry that instead of proposing specific measures to support families with children, the idea has been narrowed to just one proposal – the ban of same-sex marriages.
“It remains a mystery how the permanent exclusion of one group of citizens from the possibility of getting married can boost the marriage between a man and a woman,” said Martin Macko, head of the Iniciatíva Inakosť.
