    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.

    I'm kind of embarrassed by the US on this issue.
