Same-Sex Marriage Gets Another Day in California Supreme Court
Thu Mar 5 2009
Gay Marriage Proponents Argue That Proposition 8 Is Illegal and Should Be Overturned
On Thursday, March 5th, legal arguments took place in the California Supreme Court regarding an attempt to overturn 2008's Proposition 8, which outlawed same-sex marriage. Same-sex couples, civil rights organizations, and the state Attorney General’s office argued that if the initiative process is used to take a fundamental right away from a persecuted minority, no one in California is safe.

The court has 90 days to issue an opinion, but Equality California thinks that a decision will be issued sooner. That organization says, "...(R)egardless of how the court rules we all have to continue working to educate Californians about the importance of the freedom to marry. And that means we need you and everyone in our community to fight for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender folks win or lose."
