New Gay Partnerships Bill

By DarkLadyWolfMother 12 December 2006 23

The ACT Government is having another go at the “Civil Unions” concept, [The ABC reports] now watered down somewhat and rebadged as the “Civil Partnerships Bill”. Apparently one of the reasons the original Civil Unions Bill was able to be canned was because the word “Union” was too close to “Marriage”; however “Partnership” is clearly diffferent.

Ruddock is currently considering the Bill, but is giving nothing away about what he thinks so far.

Gay and lesbian support group, Good Process, have said it’s a good thing, and are happy that the Bill provides for some kind of ceremony.

Now we just have to wait to see how this one is killed.

What’s Your opinion?

I only believe in civil partnerships when both males are High Court judges.
