Australia Blocks A Ruling On Gay Marriage Vote

Mexican Court Lifts Ban On Adoption By Gay Couples

The Supreme Court of Mexico lifted a state ban on adoption by homosexual couples Monday. In the Mexican state of Campeche, gay couples were legally unable to adopt. In its decision, the Supreme Court ruled article 19 of a law regulating civil unions unconstitutional, now allowing homosexual couples to adopt underage children. The news follows the court's nationwide decision in June to allow legal marriage between gay individuals. The court's current decision only affects adoptions in Campeche, but may serve as the precedent for the lifting of the ban in other states.
