Puerto Rico's government is supporting an effort to overturn a ban on gay adoption in the U.S. island territory.

Puerto Rico's Supreme Court narrowly voted in February to uphold an island law banning adoptions by same-sex parents. The woman whose adoption request was at the heart of the case asked the court to reconsider that decision.
