Argentina's President Signs Same-Sex Marriage Legislation

Argentina Click here for video (in Spanish) of the signing ceremony and moving, heartfelt remarks of Argentina's President upon signing legislation that makes Argentina the first country in Latin America where same-sex marriage is legal throughout the country.  (In Mexico, same-sex marriage is lawful in Mexico City but not in other parts of the country.)

One commentator wrote this about the President's remarks:  "Amazing words. No TelePrompTer. No reading of notes."
