Congressional committee members rejected President Enrique Peña Nieto’s same-sex marriage proposal; gay marriage is currently legal in 10 of Mexico’s 32 states.
At the meeting that lasted a little over 2 hours, members both for and against the bill shared their viewpoints; however, the Commission, which is headed by Guadalupe Acosta Naranjo of the leftist PRD party, ultimately voted to reject the bill.
During the debate, Benajmín Medrano of the PRI party and the same party that the president belongs to, came out as gay and said he would be voting in favor of the bill. Former governor of Yucatan, Ivonne Ortega Pacheco, also voted in support of the bill.
All members of the conservative party PAN voted against the bill, and members of the leftist parties Morena and the PRD voted in support of the bill.
Gay marriage is currently legal at the state level in Campeche, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Colima, Jalisco, Michoacán, Morelos, Nayarit, Quintana Roo and Mexico City, and all states are required to recognize marriage certificates issued in those states without exception.
In addition, courts in all states must approve marriage licenses for same-sex couples when petitioned to do so.
