SA to allow singles, same sex couples to adopt

The South Australian Parliament has passed a law which will mean that single people and same sex couples will, for the first time, be allowed in that State to adopt.

Until about a year ago, four Australian jurisdictions prohibited same sex couples from adopting:

  • Victoria
  • Queensland
  • South Australia
  • Northern Territory
Since then, Victoria and Queensland have passed laws removing that discrimination. South Australia's law is to commence on a date to be fixed.

Only the Northern Territory is not changing its laws, and will for the foreseeable future continue to discriminate in this area.
