Mexico City’s stab at marriage equality is facing a similar challenge to California’s: On the basis of “protecting the children,” the country’s attorney general is appealing to Mexico’s Supreme Court to void the law. Also because letting gays marry in the nation’s capital is unconstitutional!
Expect a showdown. City officials say they’re sticking to plans to implement the law on March 4. But the attorney general is hoping the Supreme Court will step in and stay the law until a ruling is issued. Its main argument? Civil unions, which Mexico currently has, are good enough for the gays.
