Russia braces for US adoption ban protest

Thousands expected to demonstrate in Moscow against law banning US citizens from adopting Russian children.

    Thousands are expected to demonstrate in Moscow on Saturday against a new law banning US citizens from adopting Russian children.

    Supporters of the new law point to cases where children have been abused or even died in US care.

    Those against the law, however, say it may block many of the most vulnerable children from finding a home.
