Dec 10, 2007 Quickie Link: Israel Must Recognize Gay Parents' Overseas Adoptions
By vanrozenheim

(Israel) - The Interior Ministry must recognize the overseas adoptions of same-sex couples, the state said yesterday. The state prosecution told the High Court of Justice that it would tell the ministry's Population Registry to recognize such adoptions as long as the couple presents a valid adoption certificate from a foreign country. "This is another step toward equality and the abolition of discrimination toward same-sex couples," said MK Zahava Gal-On (Meretz-Yahad). "The time has come for the state to recognize these couples, just as it recognizes the adoptions of heterosexual couples."
