Today, Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) released the following statement on the Supreme Court taking up Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act:
"Today and tomorrow the Supreme Court will take up Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act. I believe that every loving, committed couple deserves the freedom to marry. The ability of an individual to care for another person or to be a good parent is not determined by sexual orientation. I've been an advocate of marriage equality for more than a decade, and I will continue to fight for equal rights in Congress. I look forward to the day when we cease these archaic battles and accept that all people are created equal and deserve to be treated equally under the law."
