Puerto Rico's Supreme Court has voted to uphold a law banning gay couples from adopting children
The 5-4 vote comes in the case of an unidentified woman who sought to adopt a child that her partner had through in-vitro fertilization. A majority of judges upheld the constitutionality of a law specifying that a family includes a mother and father because that is best for a child's dignity and well-being. The decision comes as Puerto Rican legislators prepare to debate several bills that would extend more rights to gays and lesbians.
