Martha Coakley asks Supreme Court to strike part of DOMA

Defense of Marriage Act“The Defense of Marriage Act is a discriminatory and unconstitutional law that harms thousands of families in Massachusetts and takes away our state’s right to extend marriage equality to all couples. It is our firm conviction that in order to truly achieve marriage equality all couples must enjoy the same rights and protection under both state and federal law.”

“If the Supreme Court chooses to examine this case, we will look forward to once again making clear that DOMA and its pervasive discrimination is unconstitutional and should be ended.”

Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley comments yesterday when she petitioned the US Supreme Court to strike part of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).  You can read more here.
