Mexico City - Mexico's Supreme Court has voted to uphold a Mexico City law allowing adoptions by same-sex couples.
|A majority of judges in Mexico's high court affirmed adoption by gays as part of Mexico City's recently-enacted gay marriage law.|
Monday's 9-2 ruling by the justices rejects a legal challenge by federal prosecutors and others who argue the law fails to protect adoptive children against possible ill-effects or discrimination.
The court voted earlier this month to uphold the other portion of the Mexico City law which legalized same-sex marriages.
The law applies only in Mexico City.
