Chilean Senate Once Again Begins Equal Marriage Debate


The Chilean Senate’s Constitution Committee on Tuesday once again began to debate an equal marriage bill that former President Michelle Bachelet introduced two years ago. The renewed legislative debate was announced last week, and therefore reactivated the process in a Senate in which conservatives have a majority. Senate President Jaime Quintana, however, in May affirmed both the equal marriage bill and a measure that would allow same-sex couples to adopt children will be priorities during this year’s legislative session. Quintana on Monday reinforced this statement in a presentation of his work as Senate president that President Sebastián Piñera attended. The committee’s last session was the third one to address equal marriage since 2017. LGBTI activists and Eduardo Court, a civil law professor, attended it.
