Argentina Debates Same-Sex Marriage Today

Argentina As you know from other posts on this blog today and yesterday, the same-sex marriage debate is in full swing in Argentina.  A bill to allow same-sex marriaige already has passed the lower house, and the President of Argentina supports it and would sign it into law.  Argentina would become the first Latin
American nation with same-sex marriage nationwide. Same-sex couples can marry in parts of Mexico (Mexico City) but not throughout the entire country.

The president of Argentina, Cristina Fern├índez de Kirchner, spoke eloquently in favor of the proposed legislation.  Her comments here are subtitled in English.
