DeLauro Statement on Supreme Court DOMA and Prop 8 Decisions

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) released the following statement today on the Supreme Court's decisions in Hollingsworth v. Perry (California's Proposition 8) and Windsor v. United States (Defense of Marriage Act).

"Today is a victory for equality. Barring LGBT Americans from marriage violates the values we hold dear--justice, freedom and equality. It makes no difference who someone loves and denying them the same rights as heterosexual couples is just plain wrong. Today's decisions will make us a fairer and better nation."
