Northern Ireland Has No Plans to Lift Gay Adoption Ban
There are no plans to retract the ban on gay and unmarried couples from adopting children in Northern Ireland, the country's Attorney General has said.

These comments were made in the context of a judicial review brought forth by the NI Human Rights Commission last December. The plantiffs for the case, with the additional backing of an unidentified lesbian couple seeking to adopt, argue that the law in Northern Ireland is at odds with the rest of the UK and thus is discriminatory against same-sex and unmarried couples.
