That effective ban on legal gay and lesbian marriages was apparently a bargaining chip in negotiations with Solidarity and other powerful Catholic influences in Poland, who also won a "right" to optional religion classes in public schools and a statement that "life is protected by law," intended to stop abortion.
In August, gays and lesbians were seeking international support for a constitutional prohibition against discrimination based on sexual orientation, something currently unique to South Africa.
