(Page 2 - Previous Page)High Court: Lesbian Couple Both Mothers
Israel's High Court of Justice ruled that the Interior Ministry must recognize two women as the mother of a child. One member of the lesbian couple is the child's biological mother; the other adopted the child in San Francisco.
The nine-member High Court panel on Sunday upheld a court order from 2000, which ordered the Interior Ministry to recognize both women as the mother of the child, who is now 11. Same-sex families have no legal standing in Israel.
