Anti-Gay Law in India – level 2

11-09-2018 07:00

A law in India made homosexual sex illegal. However, the Supreme Court there abolished the law last Thursday, and the court said that the law violated human rights.

People came together outside the court and celebrated. One person said that gay people were free in front of the law. Another person said that this would open the doors for more civil rights.

Difficult words: abolish (stop), violate (break), human rights (a peoples’ rights to be free).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
