Hungary Writes ‘The Mother Is A Woman, The Father Is A Man’ Into Its Constitution As It Bans Gay Couples From Adopting Children

Hungary has written ‘the mother is a woman, the father is a man’ into its constitution as it approved a law that effectively bans same-sex couples from adopting children.

The legislation, passed on Tuesday, December 15, in the Hungarian parliament, limits adoption to married couples, while single people can only adopt with special permission from the government.

Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s government explained the change by saying ‘new ideological processes in the West’ made it necessary to ‘protect children against possible ideological or biological interference’.

The amendment defines children’s sex as that assigned to them at birth and ‘ensures the upbringing of children according to… [Hungary’s] Christian culture’. 

David Vig, director of Amnesty Hungary, called it a “dark day for Hungary’s LGBTQ community and a dark day for human rights”.

The rights group said two additional constitutional amendments would further restrict the rights of LGBT+ people in the country.

“These discriminatory, homophobic and transphobic new laws – rushed through under the cover of the coronavirus pandemic – are just the latest attack on LGBTQ people by Hungarian authorities,” Mr Vig said.

The move comes weeks after Hungarian anti-LGBT MEP Jozsef Szajer resigned after he was caught climbing out of a window naked when police raided an illegal gay sex party in the rue des Pierres in Brussels, Belgium.
