Gay rights in France: After marriage equality, what's next?
Date created :
In 2013, same-sex marriage and adoption became legal in France but key issues remain unresolved. The main sticking point today concerns "medically assisted procreation", essentially artificial insemination and IVF. Currently, the procedure is only open to heterosexual couples, driving lesbians and single women to seek solutions abroad. President Emmanuel Macron wants to make it legal for all women, but traditional Catholic groups have vowed to put up a fight.
