The Indian Government Wants To Ban Adoption By Same-Sex Couples

Well the Indian government is definitely backtracking in equality. After the Supreme Court of India has criminalized homosexuality again in December 2013, the government wants to ban adoption by same-sex couples.

For now, only couples would face the ban. A single LGBT person may still adopt but for how long?

This change in law will affect Indian couples but could also involve foreign LGBT couples.

The new bill was sent to the Parliament.
