Jer's Vision would like to congratulate Argentina for being the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage. Thank you to the 33 law makers who voted towards legalizing same-sex marriage along with President Christina Fernandez who is a strong supporter of the change.Argentina has given the gay and lesbian community every right that heterosexual couples have,including adoption and inheritance.
Since the law was passed Thursday, July 15th nine gay couples have already said the famous words "I do". Rolando Jimenez a gay activist in Chile thinks the change in Argentina gives hope. He says "Argentina's political class has provided a lesson to the rest of Latin America". Following in Argentina's footsteps Paraguay will adress and present a proposal for a similar law in the months to come. We at Jer`s Vision would like to say good luck and congratulations to all 9 of the couples who recently got married in Argentina.
