Conservatives Look to Redefine Marriage in Mexico

ConFamilia hopes to convince the Senate that children have a right to both a mother and father, and to return to a heteronormative definition of marriage

In Mexico City, a conservative group is looking to undermine last year’s Supreme Court ruling that made gay marriage legal nationwide.

“Gay marriage doesn’t exist,” said Juan Manuel Dabdoub Giacoman, president of the Mexican Council of the Family (ConFamilia) to Reporte Indigo reporter Hidalgo Neira. “Two men cannot procreate, two women cannot procreate, they shouldn’t have children. We’re also not in favor of putting a child up for adoption to single men or single women.”

Yesterday morning, ConFamilia presented a list of five points to the Mexican Senate that it hopes will be used to amend the Fourth Article of the Mexican Constitution, that which relates to the state’s obligation to the family. They were: protection of the concept of family, protection of marriage, the right of parents to educate their children, the right of children to have a mother and father, and the development of the family.

The group presented 200 thousand citizen signatures in support of their proposal.
