Uruguay on verge of approving homosexual and transsexual ‘marriage’ law
December 11, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Uruguay’s ruling socialist coalition, known as the “Broad Front,” is spearheading a legislative initiative to create homosexual and transsexual ‘marriage’ in the South American country, according to regional news reports.
The text of the bill not only permits two people of the same sex to “marry,” but also enshrines gender ideology into its marriage statute. It states that “the institution of matrimony will include the union of two contracting parties, whatever their gender identity or sexual orientation, on the same terms, with equal effects and forms of solution that the Civil Code currently establishes.”
The Chamber of Deputies, the lower house of the National Congress, is reportedly scheduled to vote on the measure tomorrow, following approval of the text of the bill by the chamber’s Constitution and Codes Commission.
Uruguay’s El Espectador reports that it is expected that the chamber will approve the bill with unanimous support from the majority Broad Font, as well as partial support from the “conservative” Colorado Party.

Uruguay already supplies “civil unions” for homosexual couples and allows homosexuals to openly serve in the military.
The success of homosexual “marriage” at the electoral level of Uruguayan politics, following passage of a similar law in Argentina in 2010, signals a growing acceptance in Latin America of the homosexual political agenda.
In addition to Argentina’s law, Mexico appears to be on the verge of seeing such “marriages” imposed by the National Supreme Court of Justice. The court claimed in a non-definitive ruling earlier this month that a law in the state of Oaxaca confining marriage to one man and one woman for the purpose of procreation was “discriminatory.”
