Washington DC – Congressman Sherman, a member of the LGBT Equality Caucus, issued the followed statement regarding the recent court decision on the constitutionality of California’s Proposition 8:
“I’m extremely pleased that the 9th Circuit court upheld the decision to find Proposition 8 unconstitutional,” said Sherman.
“We should reject any law that denies certain citizens the legal rights and protections that are available to others, simply because of their sexual preference. Everyone should have the right to marry the person of their choosing. Furthermore the rights of the minority should not be voted upon. In America rights should be granted equality to all citizens across the board. I would hope this decision is upheld if an appeal moves to the Supreme Court.”
