Procedures before the European Court of Human Rights which concerning the protection of children’s rights, are many. In particular, in public attention were those in which decisions were made on the right of homosexuals to adopt children and the best interests of the children in these situations. They are particularly delicate, given the specificity of family relationships and interdependence of family norms of history, culture and traditions of the state. The question in these proceedings also is the right to medically assisted procreation of lesbian couples. The paper analyzes the judgment of the European Court of Human Rights in the case of Gas and Dubois v. France from March 2012, in the light of the recent changes of French legislation in this area. In May this year, entered into force the Law no. 404, which allows same-sex couples to get married and adopt children in France.
