Brazil To Ask Voters If They Are For Or Against Same-Sex Civil Unions

Written by

In Brazil, lawmakers decided to let voters express their support or their opposition to same-sex civil unions in next October.

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.
