Gay adoption ban will soon fall in Mississippi, the last such state

Civil rights attorneys have filed suit in federal court to overturn Mississippi’s ban on adoption by same-sex couples, according to “The Week”, here.  Tamar Lewin has a story in the New York Times here. Obergefell and the Supreme Court decision on marriage will certainly be relevant.
Florida had banned such adoptions (leading Trump’s enemy, Rosie O’Donnell, to move), and back in the 1990s New Hampshire had a “must ask, must tell” personality.
Ronnie Musgrove has a Huffington piece on Senator Rob Portman’s change-of-heart, over his own family, here
The Washington Blade is reporting that in Mexico the supreme court has overturned a ban on gay adoption.
