A petition in Denmark calling for two gay fathers to be granted equal parental rights for their child, on Monday received more than the 50,000 signatures required to be considered by parliament. The text, presented last Friday, calls for the creation of new status, “co-paternity”. It would give a child and its non-biological father legal rights and obligations they would not otherwise have, including parental authority and inheritance rights. More than 73,000 people had signed the petition by Monday afternoon, a strong show of support in such a short period of time. “Parenthood can currently be shared between a man and a woman, or between two women, but not two men,” Soren Kristensen Juliussen, who initiated the petition, told AFP. “Clearly, there’s a lack of justice.”
