Italy Govt Loses Court Battle Over ID Documents for Gay Parents

ROME (Reuters) – Same-sex parents have the right not to be called “father” and “mother” in the ID papers of their offspring, a court in Italy has ruled, in a decision that rubs against the country’s new right-wing government. Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni sees herself as a defender of Christian values and of what she calls the “traditional family,” and her hard-right Brothers of Italy party is particularly hostile to same-sex parenting. Nevertheless, a judge in Rome ruled in favour of a lesbian couple who opposed current rules for the identity cards of minors, which must include a reference to parents or legal guardians.
