    As one of the witnesses said, “It’s the right thing to do.”

    We need this bill. A government cannot stand in the way of the love of two people, regardless of sexual identity, race, or religion.

    Thank you, Senator Leahy.
    It’s about time we ended the unjust suffering of loving couples.

    As an ordained minister, I view this legislation as a long overdue act of social justice. Families need to be supported no matter how that family is constituted.
