Questioning whether separate is equal, the California Supreme Court this week considered ending the exclusion of same-sex couples and their families from marriage. Said Evan Wolfson, "As several questions and answers underscored, California has already conceded these families exist, that they should have protections and responsibilities akin to married people. The state is trying to claim that they’re already being treated, quote unquote, equally. If all that is true, what is the reason to deny them the freedom to marry, especially in light of testimony and evidence that the denial makes their life harder?” [Link]
