Israel Opens Doors For Same-Sex Parenting

Israel news outlets report that the country’s Welfare Ministry has decided to assist lesbians and gay men in adoption.

Until recently, law in Israel only allowed heterosexual couples to adopt. The unfortunate adjective “normative” was used in language to describe permissible households. As a result, same-sex and single-parent families have suffered legal discrimination.

A prominent leader in the struggle for same-sex families predicts the progressive change in law will effect “thousands lesbian families and dozens of gay families that raise children together but are not registered as their adopting parents.”
