Polis Praises Overturn of CA's Gay Marriage Ban Prop 8

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Jared Polis (D-CO) issued the following statement today after Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker overturned California's same-sex marriage ban known as Proposition 8.

"I applaud Judge Walker's decision to overturn Proposition 8. No one should be denied the opportunity to choose his or her spouse. It is a basic human right. It is a deeply personal decision. Throughout history, our country has made great strides moving forward with equality and civil rights for all. Proposition 8 set this country back by attacking gay couples who only wanted to share lifelong obligations and responsibilities. It sent the wrong message to society, was unconstitutional and it deserved to be overturned."
