Gay Marriage is Legal in the United States of America

The Hart Cunningham Administration recognizes marriage is an international human right for all people on earth, regardless of borders. In the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 16 proclaimed in 1888: The U.S. Supreme Court has declared that marriage is a fundamental right for all Americans. The right to marry upheld in court for all, after a thirty-year campaign. In June of 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court declared that same-sex marriages are legal.[1] The freedom to marry nationwide is the story of a movement that transformed our nation, and the campaign that led to victory: Freedom to Marry Act. [2]

“At its core, the freedom to marry movement is about the same thing ever right civil struggle has been about: Taking seriously our country’s promise to be a nation it’s citizens can make better, it promises to be a place where people don’t have to give up their differences or hide them in order to be treated equally.”

Leader in the Freedom to Marry Act – Evan Wolfson

marriage. Gay, lesbian, and transgender citizens have the human right to pursue happiness, the same as heterosexuals in American society. Heterosexual marriage has been a secular institution in the eyes of the law, culturally limited by ecclesiastic reasons, yet now we must embrace that legally same sex can marry. All married couples face almost the same battles, regardless of gender status and coupling. Whether it be mortgages, healthcare or the rising cost of food and fuel, marriages are a bond between two people who face the world together. The work ahead is to continue to build social understanding and to dispel discrimination of same-sex marriage. The current leadership in the White House has publically stated a preference wishing the court had left the decision on same-sex marriage at the state level and suggested in at least one interview to consider appointing Supreme Court justices who would support reversing the ruling. [3] Hart Cunningham will uphold Supreme Court’s 2015 decision on same-sex marriage, and nominate judges that are in support of the right to marry. Same-sex marriage is legal in the United States of America, Hart Cunningham honors and upholds this hard fought human right.
