ACLU of Indiana: We are ecstatic

Statements verbatim, as issued Wednesday by the ACLU of Indiana:

  • Ken Falk, ACLU of Indiana legal director, said “We are ecstatic that the court recognized what we have always maintained: That there is simply no justification for treating same-sex couples any differently than other loving couples of opposite genders.”
  • “Thanks to the decision of Judge Young, Hoosier couples and their children no longer have to wait for their families to be accorded the rights and dignity that only come with marriage,” said Jane Henegar, ACLU of Indiana executive director. “Marriage is a commitment, declared privately and publicly, to love and honor and be responsible to and for each other. Same-sex couples want marriage, and finally marriage is possible in Indiana.”
