MOSCOW, September 5 (Itar-Tass) - MP Aleksei Zhuravlyov from the United Russia faction at the State Duma has initiated a bill, which strips homosexual parents of parenthood rights, and demanded to amend the Family Code. The author of the bill represents the All-Russia People's Front (ONF).

The bill, available on the Duma website, complements an article in the Family Code which stipulates the reasons for which parenthood rights might be denied: dodging parent duties, cruelty to children, alcoholism or drug addiction, a premeditated crime against a child or the other spouse. Zhuravlyov has suggested to add homosexual contacts to the list of the offences which entail the loss of parenthood rights.

If the bill is passed a non-traditional sexual conduct of both or one of the parents will be a motive to strip a homosexual of parenthood rights, the MP explained in a supplement to the bill.

The MP reminded of a previous bill adopted in Russia which bans advocating non- traditional sexual relations among adolescents. "Following the letter of the law such practices were banned not only in the mass media, but in a family as well", the author of the bill said.
