Thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Paris to protest against same sex marriage, which was legalized in France in 2013. The protest was organized by ManifpourTous, or ‘Demonstration for All’. French presidential elections are due to be held in May and the group, formed in 2012, is seeking a repeal of the 2013 law. Protesters marched through the

Place de la Concorde towards the Eiffel Tower, holding slogans such as “A father and a mother – it’s hereditary” and “In 2017, I will vote for the family.” As well as same sex marriage, protesters rallied against surrogate pregnancies, which would allow same sex couples to have children. Some held up signs saying, “women’s wombs are not for sale.” FULL REPORT
