Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) released the following statement lauding the Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges et. al.

“I am thrilled that the Supreme Court has recognized the right to marriage for all Americans, regardless of who they love. Barring LGBTQ Americans from marriage violates the values we hold dear—justice, freedom and equality. It makes no difference whom someone loves and denying them the same rights as heterosexual couples is just plain wrong. [Last week's] decisions will make us a stronger, fairer and better nation.”
