Mexico's attorney general praised for challenging same-sex 'marriage'

.- Pro-family and pro-life leaders in Mexico are praising the decision by the country’s attorney general to challenge the Mexico City law allowing same-sex couples to marry and adopt children. The attorney general will appeal the law to the Supreme Court, arguing that it violates Mexico's constitution.

Pro-life leaders say the law, approved by the Mexico City Legislative Assembly, represents “a serious threat to the country,” is unconstitutional, and ignores the beliefs of 75 percent of Mexico City residents who oppose such a measure.

Previously the attorney general asserted that the new law violates Mexico’s constitution by stripping protections from the family and making the rights of children subject to the interests of same-sex couples. He argued that children have a right to the traditional family model outlined in the 1974 reform of the constitution.

The government official also rejected the Legislative Assembly’s argument that it approved homosexual “marriage” because no legal protection for same-sex couples to exercise their rights and to start a family existed. “That is not accurate, because since 2006, civil unions have been allowed in Mexico City, which practically grant the same rights as marriage, except in the areas related to procreation and children,” the attorney general stated.
