U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin Statement on 7th Circuit Court Ruling for Marriage Equality in Wisconsin
U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin released the following statement today on the unanimous decision by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold a previous Federal Court ruling for marriage equality in Wisconsin.
Washington D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin released the following statement today on the unanimous decision by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold a previous Federal Court ruling for marriage equality in Wisconsin.
“Today’s decision is yet another affirmation that discrimination doesn’t just violate our Wisconsin values – it violates our Constitution and marriage equality will be the law of the land in our state. It is simply wrong for Governor Walker and Attorney General Van Hollen to continue to defend discrimination and with the unanimous rejection of their position by another federal court, it is long past time for them to stop standing in the way of freedom, fairness and equality for all Wisconsinites. Love is love, family is family, and discriminating against anyone’s love, against anyone’s family, is not only wrong, it is unconstitutional. It is now time for us to keep our promise to pass on to the next generation a Wisconsin that is more equal, not less equal.”
