A group of Czech MPs are planning to put forward legislation that would allow gays and lesbians living in registered partnership to adopt their partner’s child. MP Radka Maxová from the ANO party told reporters on Wednesday the bill, which should enter the legislative process later this week, was needed to allow registered partners take care of their children without fear of legal consequences. The legislation would however not make it possible for same-sex couples to adopt children from children’s homes and other institutions. There are around 900 children living in same-sex households in the Czech Republic, according to 2011 population census data.
