The nation’s major mental health organizations have filed an amicus brief in the Ninth Circuit case Golinski v. Office of Personnel Management, arguing that the Defense of Marriage Act stigmatizes against gays and lesbians and should be overturned.

Proponents of DOMA have already used the paper to defend their arguments, but the medical professionals explain why it should be ignored.
