Libertarian Party of Indiana Statement on U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Defense of Marriage Act

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

June 26, 2013

(Indianapolis, Indiana)  The Libertarian Party of Indiana applauds today’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling striking down key provisions of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

LPIN State Chairman Dan Drexler issued the following statement:


“Today’s decision by the U.S. Supreme Court is clearly an historic move toward marriage equality consistent with the long-held libertarian belief that government does not have the authority to define, license or restrict personal relationships. Consenting adults should be free to choose their own sexual practices and personal relationships.”

“We encourage Republican leaders in the Indiana Statehouse to heed this ruling and abandon their ongoing efforts to build discrimination into Indiana’s own state constitution in this year’s legislative session.”
