BAR GROUP BACKS GAY MARRIAGE


LOS ANGELES — Jennifer C. Pizer, National Marriage
Project Director for Lambda Legal, issued the following statement in
reaction to the resolution by the American Bar Association (ABA) in
support of marriage equality for same-sex couples:

"With today's resolution, the ABA has added its informed and nationally
influential voice to a growing chorus calling for an end to ignorance and
discrimination. As the leading membership organization of legal
professionals in this country, the ABA sets national standards of practice
and ethics for attorneys. This resolution recognizes not only the basic
humanity of the ABA's lesbian and gay members, but of hundreds of thousands
of gay and lesbian couples and their families nationwide.

We commend the members of the ABA House of Delegates for a timely,
important vote."


Lambda Legal is a national organization committed to achieving full
recognition of the civil rights of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals,
transgender people and those with HIV through impact litigation, education
and public policy work.

 

Below is the text of the resolution:

 

 

"RESOLVED, That the American Bar Association urges state, territorial, and tribal governments to eliminate all of their legal barriers to civil marriage between two persons of the same sex who are otherwise eligible to marry."

 

Statement from Evan Wolfson, Executive Director of Freedom to Marry on the ABA's Resolution embracing the freedom to marry:

 

"The American Bar Association, the largest voluntary professional organization in the world, has strongly declared that there is no good reason to continue excluding same sex couples from marriage. With today's resolution, the ABA embraces our nation's promise of liberty and equal protection under the law and signals a growing consensus in America's legal profession that marriage is a fundamental right that belongs to every citizen."
