PA Sen. Bob Casey Comes Around To Gay Marriage Following Huge Public Outcry

Casey-091907-18336- 0006

These stories had a substantial impact on my position on this issue. If two people of the same sex fall in love and want to marry, why would our government stand in their way? At a time when many Americans lament a lack of commitment in our society between married men and women, why would we want less commitment and fewer strong marriages? If two people of the same sex want to raise children, why would our government prevent them from doing so, especially when so many children have only one parent or none at all?”

Sen. Robert Casey (D-PA) announcing support for marriage equality and the repeal of DOMA after feedback from LGBT Pennsylvanians, their families and the nearly 13,000 signees to an online petition (via the Philadelphia Gay News).
