If elected president, Marine Le Pen will repeal France’s gay marriage laws, the Front National candidate’s politician niece Marion Maréchal-Le Pen has vowed. Speaking on BFMTV Sunday, the young Le Pen said she would personally ensure her aunt follows through with the pledge if elected on 7 May. “It will not be the first priority, but … [repealing gay marriage] is a promise that we will stick to, and I will personally guarantee that this bill is demolished,” the MP for Vaucluse said.
Le Pen stressed the Front National are also determined to honour other pledges outlined within proposal No. 87, such as the promise “to reserve PMA (medically assisted procreation) as a tool to treat fertility problems”, which would restrict the treatment to heterosexual couples. The bill to legalise marriage between homosexual couples was originally set to provide taxpayer-funded treatment to extend PMA to women living together as partners, a measure still demanded by LGBT activists and prominent left wing figures in France.
Last year Marion Le Pen was hired by Steve Bannon as part of Breitbart‘s expansion into France and Germany, although the above-linked article makes no mention of that. Marion, 27, is the youngest person ever elected to the French Parliament, one of two National Front candidates to win seats in 2012. In October 2016, she headlined a massive anti-gay rally in Paris organized by the anti-LGBT hate group La Manif Pour Tous.
