Ohio Gov John Kasich & AG Mike DeWine: Stop defending the ban on same sex marriages
This petition had 134 supporters
Every Ohioan has a constitutionally protected right to be treated equally under the law. In Ohio though, those who have committed themselves in same sex marriages performed in one of the growing number of states in which it is legal are denied that right and institutionally discriminated against on the basis of sexual orientation. By contrast, Ohio recognizes all marriages performed out of state for heterosexual marriages without scrutiny, including marriages of first cousins performed in states which allow such marriages, disproportionately marginalizing members of the LGBTQ community (Ohio Revised Code, 3101.01).
