California state Senator Alan Lowenthal has issued the following statement on the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals panel ruling that California's ban on same-sex marriage, Proposition 8, is unconstitutional:

"The Ninth Circuit has reaffirmed what most of us already knew--that Proposition 8 is discriminatory. This is the exact same discrimination we have seen all too often in this country, from the streets of Selma to the suffrage marches of the 1920s."

"The appellate panel has made it clear, as many courts before have done, that the U.S. Constitution is not a tool for those seeking to strip others of basic civil rights."
