Paper Pushers To Chile: Change Your Laws And Pay Up, Bigots

BBC – Chile’s Supreme Court has been rebuked for a ruling in which a woman lost custody of her children because she was living with her lesbian partner.

The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) said the ruling was a violation of the woman’s human rights…

The IACHR, which is an autonomous body of the Organisation of American States (OAS), called on the Chilean state to make reparations.

It also urged the government to take steps to adopt “legislation, policies and programmes” to prohibit and eradicate discrimination based on sexual orientation.
