A few minutes ago, the California Supreme Court hear the final oral arguments in the case to overturn Proposition 8. Within 90 days, we will know whether the court will restore equal rights to uphold injustice.
No matter what the state Supreme Court decides, the fight for equality will continue in California and across the country.
If we win, the same people who backed Prop 8 will find another way to undermine equal rights. If we lose, we will need to take our case to the people of California again. No matter what, we’ll eventually need to win full equality under the federal law.
A central question the court faces is whether Proposition 8 amounts to a violation of human rights or falls within the limits of people’s power to change the state’s Constitution. And if the ballot measure stands, what would be the status of some 18,000 same-sex marriages already performed?
Support love and not hate in this country. Come on Obama, equal rights for everyone on a federal level!!!
