Homosexual couples who live in a registered partnership in Denmark are now able to adopt children following the passage of a resolution in the Danish Parliament today.

The resolution, proposed by Liberal Alliance Political Spokesman Simon Emil Ammitzbøll, was carried after five members of the ruling Liberal Party crossed the floor to vote with the opposition.

“I am delighted that we are now a step closer to equal rights for homosexuals and heterosexuals,” Ammitzbøll says.

“Homosexual couples can be just as good parents as heterosexuals – being a good parent is neither about sexuality, religion nor finances but about loving and caring for children,” he adds.

Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen (Lib) and Justice Minister Lars Barfoed (Cons) have previously said that homosexual adoption is not government policy.
