A Russia lawmaker has proposed a bill to remove children from gay parents.
Alekei Zhuravlev, the deputy of the Russian State Duma, has proposed amendments to the Family Code.
Under the new bill, having a ‘non-traditional sexual orientation’ will be a basis for denying custody to gay people.
Other grounds include alcoholism, drug use, a history of violence, insanity and abuse.
Zhuravlev, the author of the child custody bill, has said homosexual ‘propaganda’ must be banned not only in public spaces ‘but also in the family’.
