Majority of Finns Back Gay Parental Rights

A majority of Finns favor allowing the surviving partner of a registered civil union of same-sex couples to retain custody of the deceased partner’s biological child. 80% of Finns back this idea. In reality, it is common for Finnish judges to grant custody in such cases to the surviving partner. A majority also supports the right of gay partners to adopt children, although such legislation has yet to be passed in Finland.
