    Argentina Approves Gay Marriage

    Yes! A win for human rights! Way to go Argentina.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/16/wo...tinabrief.html

    After 15 hours of debate, the Senate voted 33 to 27 in favor of the measure, which was sponsored by the government by President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.

    The same-sex marriage measure will give gay people the same marital rights as heterosexuals, including adoption and inheritance rights.

    Mexico City became the first jurisdiction in Latin America to legalize same-sex marriages last year. Two other countries in the region, Uruguay and Colombia, allow civil unions for same-sex couples.
