Video: Law Professor Tobias Wolff Makes the Case for Marriage

 Hoover Institution, Uncommon Knowledge

Tobias Barrington Wolff, Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, makes the case for marriage in response to Judge Richard Kramer's March 2005 ruling striking down California's Proposition 22, the ballot initiative excluding same-sex couples from marriage. Wolff counters Alliance Defense Fund lawyer Terry Thompson's use of the "slippery slope" diversion of "polygamy" and demonstrates why there is no rational basis for excluding gay and lesbian couples from marriage.
