Slovenia: referendum vote overturns same-sex unions
CWN - March 28, 2012
Voters in Slovenia have rejected a bid to allow legal recognition of same-sex partnerships.
In a national referendum, 55% of voters rejected a proposed new Family Code that would have provided for registration of same-sex partnerships. The new code would also have allowed homosexual couples to adopt their own biological children. The referendum overturned legislation that had been passed by the Slovenian parliament in 2009.
