EUA legalizam casamento homossexual

By Phil Bainbridge

December 14, 2022 - A Lei de Respeito pelo Casamento assinada pelo Presidente Joe Biden dos EUA impõe que o governo federal reconheça todos os casamentos – incluindo casamentos do mesmo sexo e interraciais – protegendo-os de qualquer revogação do Supremo Tribunal dominado por 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.
