I think it depends on what type of issue, and whether they have a demonstrable history of proper self-care or not. I've seen disabled parents raise perfectly good kids, etc, so if they can show that they are worthy, let 'em do it.
Nope. I dont think anyone has a "right" to adopt children, especially if they can't be trusted to act right.

It would definitely depend on the mental health issue.
As long as its manageable (either through meds or other activities), and doesn't pose a threat to yourself or a child, then I dont see why it should inhibit anyone!
I would not want a mentally unstable person to be able to adopt a child. If they can't take care of themselves how can they take care of a child?
