Reneging on a right
August 08, 2008 at 10:18 AM
The Los Angeles Times published an editorial today on the issue of Prop. 8 which will appear on the November ballot. Prop. 8 intends to rescind the right of civil marriage from same-gender couples. The editorial discusses how this proposition is markedly different from Prop. 22 back in 2000 which revised the state code to restrict marriage to opposite-gender couples. Given the CA Supreme Court decision in May, banning same-gender civil marriage with Prop. 8 rescinds an existing constitutional right.
