Statement from Governor Martin O'Malley on US Supreme Court Rulings on Defense of Marriage Act and Prop 8

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Annapolis, MD

Governor Martin O'Malley released the following statement on today's U.S. Supreme Court rulings on the Defense of Marriage Act and Prop 8:

"Today, the United States Supreme Court ruled that the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional as applied to states that recognize equal marriage rights.

"This ruling is a powerful step forward for those who live in states like Maryland. But the Court's decisions make clear that there is still more work to do as a nation to achieve greater respect for the equal rights and human dignity of all.

"As Marylanders, and as Americans, we ultimately all want the same thing for our children: to live in a loving, stable, committed home protected equally under the law."
