Romanian groups work to block same-sex unions in the country
- Anti-LGBT activists undertook a signature campaign to push for a constitutional amendment outlawing same-sex unions.
- The campaign was spurred by the Coalition for Family, a confederation backed by the Orthodox Church that claims to have amassed 3 million signatures in support of the amendment.
- Current marriage law in Romania defines marriage as a union of “partners,” which conservative activists have attempted to have changed before in a failed 2013 campaign.
