Statement

U.S. Rep. Allyson Y. Schwartz (PA-13) issued the following statement today after a group of Pennsylvanians filed a lawsuit in cooperation with the American Civil Liberties Union seeking to overturn the state's law prohibiting same-sex marriage.

"I am proud to support the Pennsylvanians who stood up today to overturn our state's unjust and discriminatory law against marriage equality. The Supreme Court's recent decision to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act was an historic victory for human rights, but there is still work to be done. The time has come for Pennsylvania to ensure that all of our state's citizens who are in loving, committed relationships and wish to be married receive equal recognition under the law."
