Abstract

This paper explores Israeli adoption law and the limits of socio-legal thinking on second-parent adoption in Israel. I argue that the difference between legal processes for recognition in same-sex parenting and heterosexual parenting expose the law's homophobia and show that its main concern is not child's best interest. Had the child's best interest been the true motivation behind the obstacles that the law imposes on gay parenting, they should have been imposed on all parents, regardless their sexual orientation.
