Same-sex adoption in Mississippi is legal, appeal deadline passes

JACKSON, MISS– Same-sex couples can now adopt in the Magnolia state after the state failed to meet the appeal deadline. 

The ban on same-sex adoption has been lifted after 16 years.

A U.S. District Judge ruled that the Department of Human Services must stop enforcing a ban on same-sex adoption back in March.

The ban was ruled unconstitutional since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriage was legal.

Lawyers representing the State of Mississippi had until midnight Tuesday to appeal the judge’s decision.
