Switzerland legalizes gay marriage

Recommended Posts

ZURICH — Switzerland's lower house of parliament approved draft legislation on Thursday to let same-sex couples marry in a country that has lagged other parts of western Europe in gay rights.

Despite opposition from conservatives, legislators also voted to let lesbian couples use sperm donations to conceive children. The legislation will now move to the upper house for a final vote.

"By 132 votes to 52, with 13 abstentions, the National Council says YES to #Ehefüralle real equality!" rights group Pink Cross wrote on Twitter, using a hashtag meaning "marriage for all".

Campaigners said the change had been a long time coming. Switzerland passed a law specifically protecting lesbian, gay and bisexual people from discrimination only in February.
