“With France and Britain poised to become the next countries to embrace
the freedom to marry, it’s clear that the momentum we see here in the
United States for ending marriage discrimination is, in fact, a global
movement toward greater freedom and equality for all – and the U.S.
should be leading, not lagging.
“America cannot afford to fall behind its
closest allies and trade partners in this global economy, and needs to
do right by its families, as a right-of-center British prime minister
and left-of-center French president have called on their parliaments to
do, with resounding success.” – Freedom To Marry head Evan Wolfson, in a
press release noting this week’s victories in Britain and France.
