Clintons Welcome Supreme Court Gay Marriage Ruling

Wednesday, 26 Jun 2013 12:51 PM

Former President Bill Clinton is welcoming the Supreme Court decision striking down a provision of the Defense of Marriage Act, which he signed into law in 1996.

In a joint statement with former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, the former president said the court recognized that discrimination toward any group holds all Americans back in efforts to form a more perfect union.

The Clintons also said they were encouraged that gay marriage may soon resume in California.

They congratulated the advocates and plaintiffs in the cases.
