The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has agreed with a homosexual woman, to whome the adoption of her partner’s girl had been refused. The French couple has filed a claim for discrimination, whereas they had signed a civil agreement on solidarity (Pacs) in 2002. The child, being conceived using medicin with anonymous donor sperm, lived with them for 10 years.

The French courts (the Tribunal of Nanterre and the Court of Appeal of Versailles), however having recognised that the legal conditions on adoption had been furfilled, in the end refused to grant the child custody to one of them, stating that the biological mother would deprive her rights concerning the child.

The European Council now has claired out that this case “falls within the range of application of the European Convention on Human Rights, which garanties the right to respect of family life”.
