7 months ago
Protest is being called the "March for Everyone"
In shocking news to folks who figured the French were very supportive of this sort of thing, more than 100,000 people across France have taken to the streets to voice opposition to a bill legalizing same-sex marriage and adoption in the country.
The protest, ironically called the "March for Everyone," has popped up in cities and small towns across France.
Some 70,000 people marched in the capitol city of Paris, carrying signs with slogans that read, "One child = one father + one mother." More than 30,000 others held similar protests in towns around the country.
France is seeking to give same-sex couples full marriage equality. Civil marriage, similar to civil unions in the U.S., has been legal in the country for 14 years.
