Capps Statement On California Supreme Court Ruling On Proposition 8


Congresswoman Lois Capps released the following statement regarding the California Supreme Court's ruling on Proposition 8:

"The California Supreme Court's decision today is deeply disappointing for those of us who believe in equal rights for all people. I strongly opposed Proposition 8 because I believe that it unfairly denies the rights and privileges of marriage to all Californians. While there is a small silver lining to this decision in that the Court did uphold the marriages of couples who married prior to the passage of Proposition 8, we must continue to look for ways in which we can correct this injustice and ensure that all Californians can enjoy the full benefits of marriage."
