MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico’s Supreme Court has upheld a Mexico City law allowing adoptions by same-sex couples.

Monday’s 9-2 ruling by the justices rejects a legal challenge by federal prosecutors and others who argued that the law fails to protect adoptive children against possible ill effects or discrimination.

The court voted earlier this month to uphold the other portion of the Mexico City law that legalized same-sex marriages.

The law applies only in Mexico City.
