MEXICO (AP) — La Suprema Corte de Justicia de México declaró inconstitucional una ley en el estado de Oaxaca que prohíbe los matrimonios entre personas del mismo sexo, en un fallo que allana el camino para que tengan lugar ese tipo de enlaces en esa región sureña y en el resto del país.

En una decisión unánime anunciada el miércoles, el tribunal anuló la ley del estado de Oaxaca que establece que "uno de los fines del matrimonio es la perpetuación de la especie".

El tribunal señaló que condicionar el matrimonio a la unión entre un hombre y una mujer "viola el principio de igualdad".

En la actualidad, el matrimonio entre personas del mismo sexo sólo es legalmente permitido en la Ciudad de México, donde fue decretada la ley para ese propósito en 2010.

El fallo de la corte corresponde a una demanda que presentaron tres parejas gay contra el estado de Oaxaca.

POR OTRO LADO, ASÍ SE MANIFESTARON EN COLOMBIA:
