Gay Adoption Law

Uruguay officially became the first Latin American country to allow gay couples to adopt children. Today the senate passed a bill that will let gays and lesbians adopt. As this article says,

"Uruguay has a long tradition of leading the way in civil rights, and has shown a desire to move ahead quickly on such questions,"
Earlier this year, Uruguay made headlines for allowing homosexuals in the military. It seems Uruguay continues proving itself to be more and more progressive.
