Russia's upper house approves US adoption ban

Russia's upper house of parliament passed a ban on US parents adopting Russian children on Wednesday, bringing one of the most controversial pieces of legislation of the Vladimir Putin era a step closer to the statute book.

    I would expect most countries to follow, if America were to approve Gay marriages.

    Well, if there were not so many extraordinary cases of abuse, they would not have had to take these steps...
    There should be better screening of all people waiting to adopt. Nationally and internationally

    The problem situations may be due to differences in parent screening.
    Maybe Russia needs to tighten it's screening procedures rather than shut out potential child placements.
    "Myth: You can adopt from any country you want.
    Busted!: When a single person or couple decides to adopt internationally, they must follow the criteria of the country from which they choose to adopt. For instance, some countries allow only couples to adopt, while others work with single clients. Some countries are uncomfortable with an age difference of more than 40 years between the oldest parent and the child, while other countries seem to prefer older parents. Because of societal values, some countries set restrictions on whether a family can already have children upon applying, some have income or weight requirements, and some work only with people who have a certain ethnic heritage. Because of political disturbance, natural disasters, or long-held beliefs, some countries do not participate in international adoption. The best place to find out whether or not it is possible to adopt from a particular country is the U.S. Department of State’s Intercountry "
