(CNA)-France’s constitutional high court on Friday rejected legal challenges to legislation that grants same-sex couples the right to marry and adopt children, New York Times reports.The leftist majorities in both houses of Parliament passed the legislation last month amid mass demonstrations by opponents of same-sex marriage and an acrimonious political debate. Legislators from the right challenged the constitutionality of the law before the high court, the Constitutional Council, but it was widely expected that the legislation would be approved.
