Uruguayan parliament continues work on gay marriage bill

The Commission on the Constitution of Uruguay’s House of Deputies takes up a bill legalizing gay marriage on Wednesday.

The bill got its first hearing in July and was introduced in June with the support of a majority of members of parliament.

If passed, it would arguably make Uruguay the most liberal country in Latin America on questions of sexuality. The country just passed a bill decriminalizing abortion, joining Cuba as the only other country in the region to legalize the procedure.
