Arizona Republic Biography

Position:
Pro to the question "Should Gay Marriage Be Legal?"
Reasoning:

“There is no good reason to deny same-sex couples the rights and privileges that heterosexual couples enjoy…

Those [anti-gay marriage] laws don’t reflect the principles of equal treatment and due process guaranteed to all under the 14th amendment to the Constitution. And now that so many gay and lesbian couples have married, the [Supreme] court would be turning back the clock to decide otherwise.”
