Hungary's parliament passes law effectively banning same-sex adoption

BUDAPEST, Dec 15 (Reuters) - Hungary’s parliament, where the ruling nationalist Fidesz party of Prime Minister Viktor Orban has a two-thirds majority, passed a law on Tuesday which practically bans adoptions by same-sex couples.

The legislation, proposed by Orban’s government, says only married couples can adopt children and single people can only adopt with special permission from the family affairs minister. Hungary does not allow gay marriage. (Reporting by Anita Komuves and Marton Dunai Editing by Gareth Jones)
