U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin Statement on Supreme Court Ruling on Same-Sex Marriage
“Today’s ruling by the United States Supreme Court is a huge victory for freedom, fairness and equality in America.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin released the following statement on today’s Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage:
“Love is love, family is family, and discriminating against anyone’s love, against anyone’s family, is simply wrong. America can proudly say that discrimination doesn’t just violate our values – it violates our Constitution. And now we can proudly say that marriage equality will be the law of the land.
“Today’s ruling by the United States Supreme Court is a huge victory for freedom, fairness and equality in America. This is a historic step forward for America, where every family’s love and commitment will now be recognized and respected under the law. This reaffirms our nation’s founding belief that all Americans are created equal under the law. It’s about fairness – about whether gay and lesbian Americans deserve to be treated just like their family members, their friends, and their neighbors. It’s about opportunity – about whether every American gets to dream the same dreams, chase the same ambitions, and have the same shot at success. And it’s about freedom – the freedom to love, the freedom to commit, and the freedom to build a family.
“I believe America is ready to take the next step forward and there is more work to be done to advance the cause of equality in America. I remain committed to continuing this march of progress with a growing number of Americans to pass on to the next generation a nation that realizes the promise of full equality for every American.”
