EUA promula ley federal sobre matrimonio entre personas del mismo sexo

By Phil Bainbridge

December 14, 2022 - La Ley de Respeto al Matrimonio promulgada por el presidente de EUA Joe Biden requiere que el gobierno federal de EUA reconozca todos
los matrimonios – incluidos los interraciales y los de personas del mismo
sexo – protegiéndolos de cualquier revocación por la Corte Suprema dominada por los conservadores.

Although Justice Clarence Thomas did not mention interrarcial marriages in his opinion when the Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade in 2022, he called into question the legality of other rights established by Supreme Court verdicts including same-sex marriages and the right to contraception, opening all of them to legal challenge.

There are just 32 countries where same sex marriage has been legalised, 22 through legislation and 10 through court decisions. In addition, an advisory decision by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights in 2018 stated that all 20 Organisation of American States’ signatory countries are obliged to make same sex marriage legal. The European Court of Justice ruled that all EU countries must recognise same-sex marriage for the purposes of immigration, regardless of whether or not it is legal in those countries.
