Reactions outside the Supreme Court to marriage equality ruling
26 June 2015
From the Human Rights Campaign in the USA:
We won! In a historic ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that bans on marriage equality are unconstitutional. Marriage equality is the law of the land and LGBT couples in every corner of the country will soon have the opportunity to marry in their home states!
At this moment, I’m standing outside of the Supreme Court with Jim Obergefell and thousands of other HRC supporters in the midst of an awe-inspiring, joyous celebration. Today is a true testament to decades of hard work paying off — and I hope you will join in the celebration wherever you are.
Raise a toast, then join us in public celebration. First, add your name to a commemorative HRC logo that includes YOUR NAME along with other HRC members’ names that will be instantly downloadable. Then, make it your profile image. That way, you can show the world that you stood on the right side of history.
In addition, if you are out celebrating, please take pictures and send them to us using the hashtag #LoveWins. HRC will be retweeting and reposting your photos all day and night so we can show the world that together, we made history!
Think about it — decades from now, children in schools will learn Obergefell v. Hodges as one of the most important equal rights cases ever before the Supreme Court. And, you were a part of it!
Today’s ruling makes it perfectly clear that there is no legal or moral justification for continuing to stand in the path of marriage equality. Couples from Michigan to Texas to North Dakota shouldn’t have to wait even a moment longer to be treated equally under the law.
I am calling upon state officials across the country to act swiftly to ensure that every obstacle to obtaining a marriage license is removed as quickly as possible so loving same-sex couples don’t have to wait any longer.
Thank you for helping HRC change hearts and minds all over the world. This victory wouldn’t have been possible without you.
Thanks so much,
