Mexico against the death penalty for homosexuality
A few days ago, and before the UN initiative to put limits to the death penalty for homosexuality in different countries, nations voted for and against the petition that hinted at the capacity for tolerance of some of the world leaders.
And if you are worried about the decision that Mexico made in this regard, our representatives to the United Nations condemned the decisions that are made in some countries where being gay is condemned to death. So much, that it was one of the eight countries that submitted the petition.
Currently, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Yemen, Nigeria and Somalia are some of the places that deal "the fact" with death penalty. Other countries that also condemn it are Afghanistan, Mauritania, Pakistan, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, but they rarely apply it.
The surprise of the world and the most part of the LGBT community was the decision of the United States, which voted against the request the countries not to use the death penalty as punishment for those who have homosexual relations with mutual consent, minors, pregnant women, for blasphemy or for adultery.
"It is inconceivable to think that there are hundreds of millions of people living in those countries where someone can be executed for whom they love," says Renato Sabbadini, director of the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association. (ILGA)
While in some countries we have achievements in favor of the rights of the homosexual community, others go backwards. For all this is that the guard shouldn’t go down and the fight must continue here and around the world so that we are all free to love anyoneregardless of their sexual preference.
