The Governor Of Washington Endorses Gay Marriage

Washington will probably be the next state to legalize same-sex marriage. Here’s an awesome speech the governor gave to reporters about her support for gay marriage and the need to end discrimination.

“Some argue that the state should deny a marriage license to same-sex couples based on the premise that marriage is for procreation. Do we then deny a license to heterosexual couples who choose not to have children?… To those who can’t have children or those who adopt?… To those who have children through in-vitro fertilization?

Some argue that same-sex marriage weakens the institution of marriage. Is this a role of the state? If so, it has failed miserably with a divorce rate among heterosexual couples now at about 50 percent.”
