An official from the Mexican Attorney General’s office warned that the state of Puebla's attempts to legalize same-sex "marriage" has nothing to do with human rights.
Official Juan de Dios Castro Lozano made his remarks during a conference in Puebla on Nov. 16 discussing the Mexican constitution. On debate surrounding the state's consideration of legalizing same-sex "marriage," he pointed out that civil unions for same-sex couples could be granted limited recognition under current statutes but not that of marriage.
Castro Lozano also expressed opposition to adoption by homosexual couples. “Adoption is not only a right belonging to adults, but also to children,” he said. The official offered his opinion that the scope of legal rights for same-sex partners in civil unions should stay within the bounds of public services, social security and related issues.
