United State President Tells ABC News He Supports Same Sex Couples Getting Married.

Washington, DC: In an interview with ABC News’ Robin Roberts on Wednesday, May 9th, 2012, United State President Barack Obama announced that he supports same-sex marriage.

The United State President Barack Obama described his thought process as an “evolution” that led him to this decision, based on conversations with his staff members, openly gay and lesbian service members, and his wife and daughters.

“I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors, when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together; when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married,” said United State President Barack Obama in an interview with ABC News’ Robin Roberts that is to appear on ABC’s “Good Morning America” this Thursday, May 10th, 2012 with excerpts of the interview airing on ABC’s “World News With Diane Sawyer” and “Nightline” tonight.

This announcement by United State President Barack Obama comes just 24 hours after North Carolina voters overwhelmingly approved a constitutional ban on gay marriage.
