Conyugal and Filial Rights of Lgbtiq+ Persons the Chilean Case

Author(s): Carolina Andrea Alday-Mondaca, Siu Lay-Lisboa

Judeo-Christian-based religions based on what they recognize as sacred scriptures reproduce sexual diversity, considering it and natural. They confused parenthood with fecundity, assimilating sexual and gender diversity with sterility, stating that a same-sex couple cannot reproduce “naturally” and could not exercise maternity/parenthood. The heterocisnormative Judeo-Christian model generates repercussions at the sociocultural and political levels through the existing obstacles to passing laws related to the Rights of LGBTIQ+ people, especially regarding their access to establishing marital contracts or to the exercise of parenthood. In this article, we will present as an example the Chilean case study, in comparison with Latin American countries, analyzing the legislative situation from the factors associated with religious groups.
