The brief examines how, throughout our history, proposals to amend marriage to enhance equality and respect for individual liberty have been met with dire — and unfounded — predictions of disaster. Instead, events in Massachusetts and California show that the general public readily supports fair treatment of same-sex couples and their families as they see that family equality has only positive effects.

This brief was filed by Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP, Children of Lesbians and Gays Everywhere, MassEquality, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and Freedom to Marry.
