President of Chile introduces bill to legalize same-sex marriage

On August 28th, 2017, the President of Chile introduced to Congress a bill which will legalize marriage between same-sex partners. This legislation is a development from the 2015 congress approval of same-sex civil unions. The President advocated for the bill stating that it is,“not ethical nor fair to put artificial limits on love”. The President has further pledged to bring a fully-drafted marriage bill to legislators by the end of 2017. It is not clear if the gay marriage bill will pass through congress before the end of her term in March 2018.
