France is the country of love, and their 3 basic principles are Freedom, Fraternity and EQUALITY
In 7 days, the French government are going to vote on a bill, the final result of which will decide whether a gay widows and widowers deserves a support pension after their loved one has died. A straight widow or widower already has the right to this pension, but it is a real possibility in France that the government may decide not to pass this law and continue to deny gay people equal rights. THIS IS DISCRIMINATION. You can do something about it! This is a petition to put pressure on the MPs. [link]
Who didnt know that in a supposedly modern country, France, gay men can't give blood, blood that could save lives, because it's "too risky"? Who didn't know that gay men are much more likely to be denied suitability for adoption because it's "too risky". One french politician even compared gay and lesbian relationships to "marriage between animals."
Sign it, spread the word. Small changes like this will pave the way to full equality.
