@ OUTTAKE VOICES™
Argentina's Senate passed a gay marriage bill becoming the
first country in South America to allow gay couples to marry.
After more than 14 hours of charged debate, during which
thousands of Argentines protested outside the Congress, the
upper house voted 33-27 for the proposal with three abstentions.
"I believe this has advanced equal rights," Senator Eugenio Artaza
told reporters after the debate in which many lawmakers in the
upper house invoked their Roman Catholic beliefs to explain
their stance. Wake-up America!! Updates to Come…:)
