Puerto Rico Government signals support for gay adoption
The government of Puerto Rico is said to be supporting an attempt to overturn a ban preventing same-sex couples from adopting children in the US island territory.
Attorney General, Margarita Mercado, has now filed a motion in support of looking again at the ban.
She said the Puerto Rico Government favours eliminating unequal treatment based on gender or sexual orientation.
The issue of same-sex couples adopting children has featured heavily in the news of late.
