KDH wants law protecting "traditional family"

THE CHRISTIAN Democratic Movement (KDH) is campaigning for a law that, according to the party, would protect the "traditional family" values that it fears are endangered by liberalisation trends and the possible legalisation of homosexual marriage.

The party wants to prepare a draft law that would only entitle heterosexual marriages to draw various state benefits for children as well as tax relief for working parents.

"This is not discrimination. We want to prevent registered [homosexual] partnerships or other forms of coexistence from being on an equal level with [heterosexual] marriages," Justice Minister Daniel Lipšic told the Slovak daily Pravda.
