Pennsylvania, USA: Still a Long Way to Go for Marriage Equality

Written by scott on November 18th, 2012

Still a Long Way to Go for Marriage Equality in PennsylvaniaSupporters of same-sex marriage are pointing to Election Day as the moment when the national drive from equality began running downhill. For the first time, voters approved measures supporting marriage equality at the ballot box, winning in Maryland, Maine and Washington.

Where does that leave Pennsylvania? We sit between two states — New York and Maryland — that have legalized marriage equality. Last spring the New Jersey legislature passed a bill in support of same-sex marriage, though Gov. Chris Christie vetoed it.

The three Democrats that swept state row office elections earlier this month — Kathleen Kane, Eugene DePasquale and Rob McCord — all support marriage equality, as does President Barack Obama.
