France's Socialist government approved a draft law on Wednesday to allow same-sex marriage, despite coming under fierce attack from religious leaders and conservative politicians.

The proposed law, presented as the first major social reform of Francois Hollande's presidency, would grant gay couples the right to adopt children but not to use assisted procreation methods such as artificial insemination.
