Poland Rejects Civil Unions Legislation for the Fourth Time

Warsaw

The Polish parliament has voted down a bill which would allow for civil unions for both heterosexual and homosexual couples. 

According to Attitude, this is the fourth time Poland has rejected the bill, which would have allowed for joint payment of income tax, social security benefits, and the right to inheritance in the event of one of the partner’s deaths.

Same-sex marriage is already banned under Article 18 of the Polish constitution. 

This vote comes on the heels of Ireland’s referendum vote to legalize same-sex marriage and Greenland’s legalizing same-sex marriage through a parliamentary vote.
