ENGLISH SUMMARY:

Norway has adopted full marriage rights of gay and lesbian couples, including full parents rights, rights for adoption and artificial insemination assistance. More information in links at the end of post.

  

V stredu prijal Nórsky parlament pomerom hlasov 84 ku 41 novú legislatívnu úpravu, ktorá plne zrovnoprávňuje homosexuálne a heterosexuálne páry.

Nový zákon nahradil legislatívu z roku 1993 o možnosti uzatvárať registrované partnerstvá, ktorá bola v Európe prijatá ako jedna z prvých.  V novom zákone sú teplé a heterosexuálne páry zrovnoprávnené ako v otázkach možnosti práva uzatvoriť manželstvo, tak aj adopcie detí a právo na štátom podporovanú asistenciu pri umelom oplodnení pre lesbické páry. Pre lesbický pár bude platiť, že ak sú v stave manželskom v momente, keď jedna z nich otehotnie prostredníctvom umelého oplodnenia, druhá partnerka získava rovnaké rodičovské práva od momentu počatia, aké by mal aj manželský heterosexuálny pár. V prípade adopcie, získavajú obaja partneri (aj v gejskom aj lesbickom páre plné rodičovské práva.

Najkontroverznejšie je vnímaný najmä nárok na štátom podporovanä asistenciu. Oponenti namietajú, že úloha muža je redukovaná na darcovstvo spermi. Identita darcu musí byťpodľa zákona známa, aby dieťa v dospelosti, ak sa rozhodne malo možnosť vyhľadať svojho biolgického otca. Legislatíva Nórska umožňuje zdravotníckym pracovníkom odmietnuť asistovať pri umelom oplodnení lesbického páru z dôvodu výhrady svedomia.

Homosexualita bola v Nórsku trestná do roku 1972. Od vtedy sa stalo Nórsko jednou z najprogresívnejších a najliberálnejších krajín v tejto oblastí. Podľa ministerky pre deti a rovnosť tento zákon predstavuje historický krok Nórska smerom k rovnosti a rovnoprávnosti.  Zákon by mal vstúpiť do platnosti koncom tohto roka alebo začiatkom roka 2009.

Nórsko sa pridalo k piatim ďalším krajinám, ktoré garantujú aj teplým párom plné manželské práva (Španielsko, Belgicko, Holandsko, Južná Afrika a Kanada).

 Victims are afraid to make official complaints
Press release of Patent, Hungary 13.08.2007 

No victim of the queer bashings of the pride march in Budapest last month has made an official complaint lest they should be further traumatized in the judicial process. Some activists have made complaints against the organizers of the attack and the police, which failed to protect the pride march participants and participants of an after-party. The police chief of Budapest and the Justice and Police Minister are satisfied with the performance of the police. 

Not a single victim of queer bashing has made an official complaint against the criminals that beat participants of the official after-party of the Budapest Pride. The 30-day deadline for the complaint closed Tuesday or Wednesday last week (6 or 7 of August) depending on whether the attack took place before or after midnight 7 July 2007.   (viac…)

We, the undersigned organisations are appalled at the fact that the police failed to protect the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) march with appropriate force and methods. We demand that those responsible be called to account and measures be taken to prevent further similar cases.

(viac…)

Neo Nazi gangs attacked the peaceful lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender march with bottles and Molotov cocktails on 7 July 2007 in Budapest, Hungary. The police failed to protect both the march and the participants of a party afterwards, say Hungarian human rights organisations. Police did not dissolve the armed assembly, did not reply to emergency calls and did not patrol in the area.

Luke Harding Monday May 28, 2007 – The Guardian 

Riot police used violence to break up a gay rights demonstration in Moscow yesterday and arrested several European parliamentarians in what critics say is the latest violation of human rights in Russia.A group of gay rights activists came under attack from neo-Nazi thugs when they tried to present a petition asking Moscow’s mayor, Yuri Luzhkov, to lift a ban on a Gay Pride parade. He has previously dubbed gay rallies “satanic”. Witnesses said riot police watched as far-right skinheads chanting “death to homosexuals” beat up several activists.
