NEW YORK, October 22, 2003 ( – Croatia has legalized same-sex unions and “human rights” protections for homosexuals. The post-communist, historically Catholic country stopped short of granting full marriage “rights.”  In Paraguay, the Minister of Women’s Affairs will propose legislation to create civil unions for same-sex couples. The announcement dispels homosexual predictions that Ms. Argana would refrain from this move because she allegedly belongs to the Roots Church, affiliated with the Mennonite Brethren.  So far in Latin America, only the city of Buenos Aires and Rio Negro province, both in Argentina, have homosexual civil unions. The so-called International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission is particularly active in applying pressure to local and national politicians to conform to their worldview.  Croatia’s new law in English:   Related LifeSite coverage of the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission:
