International News

An Irish gay man who gave his sperm to a lesbian couple he was friends with so they could get pregnant has lost his case seeking guardianship of his two-year-old son, the Irish Times reported April 17.
High Court Justice John Hedigan determined it is best for the boy to remain with his mothers, who, he said, are a de facto family as defined by the European Convention on Human Rights.
Hedigan also stressed that the Dail, or parliament, should urgently address the dearth of Irish law on the rights of same-sex couples.
