“Argentina Legalizes 'Gay Marriage '”
by MICHAEL WARREN - Associated Press Writer   
July 15th, 2010

BUENOS AIRES - Argentina has legalized same-sex "marriage" nationwide, becoming the first country in Latin America to give homosexual men and women all the legal rights that marriage brings to heterosexual couples.

The vote came down to 33 in favor, 27 against, and three abstentions in Argentina's Senate early Thursday morning. Since the lower house already approved it, and President Cristina Fernandez is a strong supporter, it now becomes law.

The vote came after a marathon debate and marches by supporters and opponents that drew thousands of people. It also comes despite a strong campaign against it by the Roman Catholic Church.
