Gay Adoption Cleared in NSW

A BILL giving same-sex couples the right to adopt has been passed by the NSW parliament, after the Legislative Council voted in support of a last-minute amendment to the legislation.

The Bill passed its final hurdle in the upper house just after 6.30pm (AEST) on Thursday, after MPs backed the Lower House amendment.

The amendment, made by Planning Minister Frank Sartor, frees up adoption agencies to act on the wishes of parents regarding where their children are adopted. -Telegraph
