Mexico federal prosecutors have filed an appeal with the Mexican Supreme Court in an effort to void Mexico City's marriage equality law before it goes into effect in March:
It cited an article in Mexico's constitution that suggests – but does not state – that the framers envisioned families constituted by men, women and children. The article states: 'Men and women are equal before the law. This protects the organization and development of the family.'"
They said it also "strays from the responsibility of the government to place a priority on
safeguarding the interests of children."
The law was passed in December by a vote of 39-20.
