BLOGTaking a Stand for Marriage across the Globe

By Alliance Defending Freedom Posted on: | May 24, 2017

The battle for the definition of marriage, family, and the human person is not just proceeding in the US and Europe, but in Latin America as well.

Last week, ADF attorneys, along with allies from Guatemala and Chile, presented arguments at the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. The questions before the court included whether it should construe the American Convention on Human Rights to require member nations to grant special legal privileges to persons on the basis of gender identity, and to extend legal status to same-sex couples.

We expect the court to rule within the next few months. 

Last year in Mexico, a similar legal challenge to the family arose. The president of that nation proposed a constitutional amendment redefining marriage to include same-sex couples, and proposed a series of policies detrimental to family stability. But in an effort led by ADF’s friends at the Frente Nacional por la Familia (National Front for the Family), 1.7 million citizens across Mexico marched against the president’s proposal and in favor of marriage between a man and woman as the foundation of the natural family – showing the true values of the Mexican people.

We think you will be encouraged by the following short video that captures some of the scenes during that historic demonstration of community support for the created design of the family.
