The US Supreme Court and Same-Sex Marriage

Hosted by

Five years ago, voters passed Proposition 8, banning same-sex marriage in California.  A federal judge in San Francisco declared it unconstitutional, and his decision was upheld by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Tomorrow, the issue will be argued before US Supreme Court in Washington. We hear from an opponent and a gay male wife with two children. (We also hear from other supporters of same-sex marriage, who gathered last night at Los Angeles City Hall. KCRW's Saul Gonzalez spoke with Councilman-elect Mike Bonin of West LA, and with Debra and Karen Zimmerman, a Los Angeles couple who were married in Canada.)
