SANTIAGO, CHILE — (11-27-21) — Chile’s lower house made history last Tuesday when they approved the bill that would permit same-sex marriage and adoption by same-sex couples in the South American country of 19 million. The bill is now back in the Senate where it appears to have the support needed to become law.

The historic measure passed by a vote of 101-30, three months after the Chilean Senate approved the bill by a 28-14 vote margin.

“After three decades of struggle, there is only one Senate vote left to achieve the so far elusive legal equality that all couples and families deserve,” said Javiera Zúñiga, spokesperson for the Chilean LGBTQ rights group, Movement for Homosexual Integration and Liberation. “We celebrate this new step, now with the total conviction that we are at the final leg.”
