HELSINKI, Finland – Gender-neutral marriage and adoption appear on the horizon for Finland.
IceNews reports that the Finnish parliamentary majority is supportive of the issues and that next year’s elections are unlikely to change that opinion.
A survey by Helsingin Sanomat showed little opposition from voters as well. Finland is considered one of the more liberal nations in Europe.
Taru Tujunen, the National Coalition Party secretary, told IceNews that an initiative would be put forward at the next party congress that would call for gender-neutral marriage. The Social Democrats will also make similar calls for adoption rights for same-sex couples during their May party congress.
