.- The Mexican Institute of Sexual Orientation (MISO) recently launched a campaign to inform the public of the negative consequences of adoption by same-sex couples. The initiative comes as the nation's Supreme Court is deciding whether or not to uphold a law allowing the practice in Mexico City.

Mexico’s attorney general, Arturo Chavez Chavez, filed a court challenge against the law allowing homosexual adoption which was passed by the Mexico City Legislative Assembly. The court agreed to hear the case in its new session that opened this week.

MISO distributed fliers around the capitol reminding citizens that “adoption is a right of the children, not of the adopters,” and that the State should not subject the well-being of children to any political agenda.

The institute also pointed to numerous studies around the world showing that same-sex couples are prone to violence, drug use and emotional instability. 

Speaking to the media, Carlos Guerra, a member of MISO, noted that “having a child raised by a father and a mother is not the same as if he or she is raised by two persons of the same sex.”

He said the institute is calling on the government to carry out its own study to see the negative consequences of gay adoption.
