Portugal's Parliament Votes Against Gay Marriage


The governing party and the main opposition are opposed to legalizing gay and lesbian marriages in the mostly Roman Catholic country of Portugal. It was voted against by a large majority. Two minor opposition parties proposed it.

They said the Portuguese Constitution grants universal equal rights and discrimination protection. Otherwise gay marriage is legalized for example in Belgium, the Netherlands and Spain.

The Socialist Party legalized abortion last year that was opposed by the Catholic church. From an opinion poll there is a 53 percent vote that opposes gay marriage and 42 percent is beside it.
