Prop. 8 attorney David Boies joined David Gregory on Meet the Press today to talk about this week’s case at the Supreme Court.

Boies says that he believes his side will prevail because his team has already succeeded on the three issues they set out to prove.

In addition, Boies had this to say:

“We believe that even if you simply apply the rational basis test, there is no rational basis to justify this ban. And that’s because…there is no evidence.


That allowing gay and lesbians to marry harms the institution of marriage or harms anyone else…

The evidence is that having a loving couple that are married is great for children. Everybody agreed with that. But the evidence is that’s true whether it’s a gay couple or a straight couple. And it’s true whether it’s an adopted couple or a biological couple.”
