Three proposals were considered by the Human Rights Commission of the Chamber of Deputies.
So the first one was approved and will ask the question : "Are you for or against same-sex civil unions?" to Brazilians at the end of the year next.
The second proposal, introduced by the Christian Party Social, was also approved. It will repeal the decision of a Court which allow same-sex couples to marry saying that notary publics cannot deny the request of a same-sex couple for a marriage license even if marriage equality is not legalized in the country.
The third one was rejected. It would have allowed equal benefits for same-sex partners.
Now the first proposal, even if approved by the Commission, has to be also approved by the committees on Finance and Taxation, the Constitution and Justice.
