Appearing at the Berlin Film Festival on Monday, actress Julianne Moore weighed in on a proposed civil unions bill in Italy.

Opponents of the bill, which would for the first time recognize the unions of gay and lesbian couples in Italy, have criticized its inclusion of limited adoption rights. They say that allowing spouses to adopt the biological children of their partners would lead to surrogacy, which is banned in Italy.

At a press conference for the film Maggie's Plan, Moore, who stars in the film, was asked how she felt about Italy's “step-child adoption.”

“Everyone having a family is a matter of human rights,” she answered. “Every individual should have the right to have a family.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Moore also offered support for same-sex parenting.
