Faith in Rights: The Struggle Over Same-Sex Adoption in the United Kingdom

Stychin, C. (2008). Faith in Rights: The Struggle Over Same-Sex Adoption in the United Kingdom. Constitutional Forum, 17(1), pp. 7-15.

Abstract

Over the past decade of Labour government in the United Kingdom (U.K.), the regulation of sexual orientation through law has frequently been explained by its supporters through a narrative of progress and even emancipation. The most recent junction in this journey came in 2007, with the coming into force of the Equality Act (Sexual Orientation) Regulations on 30 April 2007.1 These Regulations contain measures pro-hibiting discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation in the provision of goods, facilities and services, education, the use and disposal of premises, and the exercise of public functions.
