The Lithuanian parliament on Tuesday voted down a proposed package of amendments that would have legalized gender reassignment.

The draft amendments were returned to the parliamentary Committee on Legal Affairs for improvement.

The Civil Code of Lithuania now theoretically allows gender reassignment for unmarried adults if it is medically possible. In reality, however, the provision does not work as necessary laws have not been adopted. Lithuania has already lost one case at the European Court of Human Rights because of the existing situation.
