Ahora Pueden: Gays can now adopt children in Uruguay
“It is a right for the boys and the girls, not a right for the adults,” Sen. Margarita Percovich said after the vote on Wednesday in a CNN article. “It streamlines the adoption process and does not discriminate.”
According to Uruguay’s Canal 10, couples must have been together for a minimum of four years before being able to adopt.
Of course, the measure was not without opponents among religious organizations and conservatives.
Last month, Archbishop Nicolas Cotugno of Montevideo, released a statement warning of consequences for society should the law pass, the Catholic News Agency reported.
“The adoption of children by homosexual couples is not a question of religion, philosophy or sociology. It has to do with respect for human nature itself,” he said, according to CNA. “To accept the adoption of children by homosexual couples is to go against human nature itself, and consequently, it is to go against the fundamental rights of the human being as a person, according to the CNN article.
