9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Court Rules Proposition 8 Same-Sex Marriage Ban Unconstitutional.

California: In a 2-1 ruling on Tuesday by a panel of the United States 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday; California’s same-sex marriage ban, Proposition 8, violated the rights of gays and lesbians, and is therefore unconstitutional.

“Proposition 8 served no purpose, and had no effect, other than to lessen the status and human dignity of gays and lesbians in California,” stated in ruling by the panel of the United States 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

The ruling done by the panel of the United States 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is likely to be limited to California and clears the way for the United States Supreme Court to rule on the issue of gay marriage.

Many in support of same-sex marriage cheered outside of the United States 9th Circuit Court of Appeals building in San Francisco, California as the news of the United States 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decision.

Events in Los Angeles and San Diego celebrated the news of the United States 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling.

Many in support of same-sex marriage vowed to continue fighting for same-sex marriage rights as well as fighting for rights for same-sex couples.

Those in support of Proposition 8, California’s same-sex marriage ban, vowed to appeal the decision made by the panel of the United States 9th Circuit Court of Appeals

Those in support the ban on California’s same-sex marriage believe that marriage should be only between a man and a woman as God attended marriage to be.

The debate over same-sex marriage heads to the United States Supreme Court which could decide next year if gays and lesbians nationwide have the right to marry.
