Governor Statement on Same-Sex Marriage Ruling

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Honolulu, HI

A U.S. District Court judge today upheld Hawai'i law banning same-sex marriages. Governor Neil Abercrombie, who contended that the law violated the Constitution, released the following statement.

"I respectfully disagree and will join the Plaintiffs if they appeal this decision. To refuse individuals the right to marry on the basis of sexual orientation or gender is discrimination in light of our civil unions law. For me this is about fairness and equality."
