For now, the soon-to-be-signed marriage bill isn’t exactly crossing the Panama Canal to motivate American lawmakers, but it might be the push Uruguay and Paraguay need to consider it. Or at least activists there hope so.
Well if Canada’s federal same sex marriage law and Supreme Court decision back in 2005 didn’t trickle down to the USA, I doubt if Argentina’s ruling will trickle up. In the USA gay marriage is seen not as a matter of law but a moral issue. As long as it’s a moral issue no jurisprudence decision anywhere – Canada, Spain, Holland, Argentina, Sweden, will have an influence.
It wasn’t a “ruling.”
Like Canada, whose legislators were forced to change the law to allow same-sex marriage through a ruling handed down by Canada’s Supreme Court that declared only sanctioning opposite sex marriage was against the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Argentina also had a Court “ruling” that forced the government to pass gay marriage legislation.
