A Violation of the Constitution
With its ruling, the Ninth Circuit affirmed a simple, fundamental American truth: Every American, regardless of race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, deserves the same dignity and respect, the same freedom to love, to marry and to build a family.
“Proposition 8 serves no purpose, and has no effect, other than to lessen the status and human dignity of gays and lesbians in California, and to officially reclassify their relationships and families as inferior to those of opposite-sex couples. The Constitution simply does not allow for laws of this sort.”
