Mexico’s Coahuila Approves Civil Unions

January 12th, 2007

Reuters is reporting that lawmakers in the Mexican state of Coahuila, a mostly rural mining and ranching state that borders with Texas, has approved civil unions for same-sex couples. Coahuila legistlators passed the bill 20-13, which, among other things, grants social security benefits to gay couples. The bill was promoted by the PRI, Mexico’s traditional ruling party before the PAN’s Vicente Fox became the first non-PRI president since 1911. Gov. Humberto Moreira, who is also in the PRI, is expected to sign the bill into law. This means that Coahuila will soon join Mexico City, which passed a civil union law last November.
