Cabinet dismisses registered partnerships law

The cabinet unanimously voted against a proposed blueprint on registered partnerships for homosexual couples. "There will never be a government in Slovakia which would pass such law and if there will, it will lead the country to a decline," said Justice Minister and a Christian Democrat Ján Čarnogurský who said he believed the legislation would "devalue heterosexual families".
