Rep. Yarmuth Statement on Supreme Court Ruling on Marriage Equality

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) issued the following statement on the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision in Obergefell v. Hodges:

“Today, the Supreme Court affirmed that love is love, and that same-sex couples deserve the right to marry no matter what state they live in. As my dear friend John Heyburn wrote in his Love v. Beshear decision just last year: ‘Each of these small steps has led to this place and this time.’ His courageous decision was an important step to reaching this place and this time, and his legacy will forever be intertwined with a more fair and more equal America.”
