Utah Attorney General John Swallow: Support the freedom to marry for all committed couples

It is vitally important for the strength of society that all citizens have equal rights under the law.  All loving, committed couples should have the freedom to marry, and all families deserve equal rights and protections.

We believe that equal rights for all couples and all families strengthen the family unit, the fabric of society, and that this can be seen in the low divorce rates among states in our union that have already granted these equal rights and protections to all couples and families.

We affirm that the Equal Protection Clause in the Fourteenth Amendment should apply to all people regardless of gender or orientation, and to all children regardless of the gender or orientation of their parents.

We know that Utah will economically benefit enormously from allowing same-sex couples to marry, recognizing marriages performed out of state, and passing statewide nondiscrimination ordinances.

We celebrate liberty and the freedom of self-determination.

      I should not have the right to deny any consenting adults the right to marry, and neither should anyone else. My marriage and your marriage are basic human rights. It is unconstitutional to deny my basic human rights.
