Supreme Court has celebrated families in largest sense of word

  • Published in Letters
The The Daily Sun,
Belknap County Democrats applaud Wednesday's Supreme Court rulings that affect so many families in our state. With these rulings, couples in all legally sanctioned relationships in N.H., and many states throughout our nation, will finally enjoy the same rights and benefits regardless of whom they marry. This is a huge step forward in the recognition of the world as we know it today and a huge step toward equality in benefits that has been sorely lacking for too many families in N.H.
We celebrate with those that have fought so hard for this day and we say our prayers for those who are not with us today to experience this celebration. As we celebrate, we must express our disappointment with our Republican colleagues from State Senator Jeb Bradley to U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte, who continue to disavow the rights accorded today to all married couples by the Supreme Court of our nation. The Court has celebrated families in the largest sense of the word. We in Belknap County welcome and join that celebration.
Kate Miller, Chair
Belknap County Democratic Committee
