Gay marriage in Mexico suffers blow as congressional committee rejects bill

Recommended Posts

Won't this week ever end? 

Gay marriage in Mexico suffers blow as congressional committee rejects bill 

by me (and someone else who doesn't matter) :) 

http://www.eluniversal.com.mx/articulo/english/2016/11/9/gay-marriage-mexico-suffers-blow-congressional-committee-rejects-bill

With 19 votes against it and 8 in support, members of the congressional Committee on Constitutional Matters rejected the President's same-sex marriage bill proposal, which would have legalized gay marriage and adoptions by same-sex couples in all 31 states in Mexico.

At the meeting, which lasted a little over 2 hours, members both for and against the bill shared their opposing viewpoints; however, the Commission, which is headed by Guadalupe Acosta Naranjo of the leftist PRD party, ultimately voted to reject the bill.

During the debate, Benajmín Medrano of the PRI party and the same party that the president belongs to, came out as gay and said he would be voting in favor of the bill. Former governor of Yucatan, Ivonne Ortega Pacheco, also voted in support of the bill.

All members of the conservative party PAN voted against the bill, and members of the leftist parties Morena and the PRD voted in support of the bill.

Gay marriage is currently legal at the state level in Campeche, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Colima, Jalisco, Michoacán, Morelos, Nayarit, Quintana Roo and Mexico City and all states are required to recognize marriage certificates issued in those states without exception.

In addition, courts in all states must approve marriage licenses for same-sex couples when petitioned to do so.

Hopefully now people will think twice about supporting fucking Margarita Zavala for 2018, or anyone from PAN for that matter. I am more pissed off by the fact that something that is a human right, something that should never be put to question and to vote, had to go through congress. Stupid.

Get used to this, folks.  We now have all three branches of government controlled by the Republicans. 

These headlines are going to become even more familiar.  

This is why voting for Trump, or not voting at all will fuck us all.

It was the only progressive and smart move from president Peña Nieto, then his governors started to loose some elections due to their unimaginable level of corruption, but instead of accepting that they blamed the bill proposed by their own president, as it was to modern and not within the morality of Mexican society so they were loosing states, so now the proposed bill has to go trough congress after being accepted by the Supreme Court as a human right. In the end I think that the Mexican society doesn't give a fuck about it

Of course we shouldn't have to get used to it.  That's why we have to fight back.  

But don't be surprised when more headlines like this WILL BE coming out.
