WE ARE GOING FOR EQUALITY RIGHTS!

 

MARRIAGE. FEDERAL LAW OF ANY ENTITY THAT, ON ONE HAND, CONSIDER THAT THE PURPOSE OF PROCREATION AND / OR THAT DEFINE IT TO BE HELD BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN, is UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

 

To consider that the purpose of marriage is procreation is an unsuitable measure to comply with the only constitutional purpose for which the measure can obey: the protection of the family as a social reality. Pretending to link the requirements of marriage to sexual preferences who can access the institution of marriage to procreation is discriminatory because unjustifiably excluded from access to marriage to homosexual couples in similar conditions to heterosexual couples. The distinction is discriminatory because sexual preferences are not an important aspect for making the distinction in relation to the constitutional imperative order. As the purpose of marriage is procreation, there is good reason that the marriage is heterosexual, or as set forth as “between one man and one woman”. This statement is discriminatory in its very expression. In this regard it is recalled that any discriminatory rules based on sexual orientation is prohibited. Consequently, any rule, decision or practice of domestic law, both by state authorities and private individuals, can’t reduce or restrict the rights of a person based on their sexual orientation.
