Madison – Today, love is love across our nation. After a hard fought battle for basic equality and human rights, our nation’s highest court finally recognized marriage equality for same-sex couples. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriage is a fundamental right that is protected under the federal constitution. In light of the Court’s decision, Rep.Chris Taylor (D-Madison) issued the following statement:

“I am absolutely elated by the Supreme Court’s decision to finally recognize the basic, fundamental right of same-sex couples to marry. Love is love, regardless of a person’s gender, sexual orientation, race, social or economic status.  The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision has been a long time coming for families and children throughout our country.  Now, committed couples can marry regardless of what state they live in, and those who have married have the legal certainly their union will be recognized.  This is a day of celebration for us all, but especially for the children whose parents now are legally recognized.

“Unfortunately, here in Wisconsin, one Republican lawmaker who opposes marriage equality is already mobilizing against Wisconsin’s Domestic Partnership Law, threatening to eliminate it in the state budget.  It’s time Republicans stop the politics of division and recognize that despite their efforts, all adults are entitled to marry the person they love.”
