Rights of Gay Couples at the United Nations

Individuals in such unions have various rights and privileges extended to them by law. These privileges according to Amnesty International are human rights which if violated in any way can land one in court to face prosecution. They are meant to protect such individuals from discrimination as well as enable them to lead a normal life just like people in other unions.

Lets’ show it forth

These rights include the right to raise children whether they were gotten out of such a union or in any other way that has been agreed by the said individuals, the right to adopt children, the right to donate blood by having sexual intercourse with another man, the right of equality as far as immigration laws are concerned as well as laws that protect students and children involved in such relations.

Protection of these children and students is important since they may tend to be discriminated against in addition to being bullied. Their involvement in this case may be through their parents or otherwise and this may attract public attention from some quotas where this has not yet been embraced as a practice in a particular society.

It is a breakthrough for all

Other rights that protect such individuals are the right to housing and employment without any form of discrimination, the right of access to facilities that offer assisted reproductive technology and the government’s embrace of such relations which goes a long way in fostering gay marriages in any particular society.
