The Italian government has directed Milan to stop registering children who have two mothers or two fathers.
Reuters reported on Tuesday (14 March) that Milan’s mayor, Giuseppe Sala, confirmed on Monday (13 March) a letter from the interior ministry with the instruction.
The order references a 2004 law that bans non-heterosexual couples from accessing fertility treatments and prohibits surrogacy in Italy.
The announcement has stoked further concern about Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni‘s right-wing agenda.
Gay rights activists on Tuesday denounced as homophobic moves by Italian Premier Giorgia Meloni’s far-right-led government to limit recognition of parental rights to the biological parent only in the case of same-sex parents. https://t.co/LAhR4z7P20
