Hahn Praises Court Ruling on Proposition 8


Location: Washington, DC

Congresswoman Janice Hahn (CA-36) released the following statement following a three judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit ruling that California's Proposition 8 violates the United States Constitution:

"I believe marriage equality is a civil rights issue. We move further away from a just nation by trying to deny Americans the rights they deserve. Proposition 8 sought to make gay and lesbians into second class citizens and today was rightfully ruled unconstitutional. While today's ruling doesn't settle this issue nationally, I will continue to stand with all LGBT Americans in the fight to ensure dignity, equality and respect for all."
