In a major development, the Chilean President on Thursday signed a law that allows same-sex marriage
The signing of the law was crucial since the new administration coming in the month of march is conservative than the outgoing administration
The new law “will allow all children with a papa and mama, with two papas or with two mamas to have the same rights and the same protection,” President Sebastin Piera said.
Several Latin American countries have passed similar laws
