Pro-marriage initiative under attack in Mexico

.- A Mexico City human rights group has asked the National Council for the Prevention and Eradication of Discrimination to investigate a pro-marriage organization because its radio spots defend traditional marriage.

Representative David Razu, president of the Human Rights Committee of the Mexico City Legislative Assembly, sent a letter to the National Council’s president, Ricardo Antonio Bucio, calling for the investigation of the group, “Man + Woman = Marriage.”

The website for “Man + Woman = Marriage” explains that the organization’s aims are to collect 50,000 signatures in order to bring a measure before the Legislative Assembly that would re-establish marriage as a union between one man and one woman.  It would also protect all adopted children and ensure they are placed with a mother and a father. 

Last December the Legislative Assembly voted to allow same-sex couples to marry and adopt children.

“Man + Woman = Marriage” said the law left children without any legal protection, and that the measure on adoption was approved at the last minute without any consensus.
