Governor Quinn Statement on Indiana and Wisconsin Court Ruling on Marriage Equality


CHICAGO–(ENEWSPF)–September 4, 2014.  Governor Pat Quinn today issued the following statement on the U.S. appeals court ruling in Chicago that same-sex marriage bans in Wisconsin and Indiana are unconstitutional:

“This ruling is another victory for all people of our great country.

“In Illinois, we do not discriminate when it comes to love and marriage. Since the marriage equality went into effect in our state in June, couples across the Land of Lincoln have been able to marry freely and equally.

“We won’t stop until everyone in America has those same rights and protections under law. We set a model for the country in Illinois and now Wisconsin and Indiana will become the 20th and 21st states to enact marriage equality.

“Our country was founded on the desire to embrace all people and today is another step forward.”
