Both Sides Say Victory Within Their Grasp In SCOTUS Marriage Case

Apr 28, 2015

Michigan is now waiting for the US Supreme Court to make its decision on same-sex marriage bans.


As we hear from The Michigan Public Radio Network’s Rick Pluta, the court heard arguments Tuesday.

   “Love will win! Love will win!”

Thousands of demonstrators gathered outside the court and cheered and jeered as the litigants emerged.

The state of Michigan says it’s an issue for voters to decide. The challengers says there’s no reason for Michigan and other states to deny same-sex couples the right to marry.

April DeBoer says she’s optimistic the court will allow her to marry her partner.

   “We’ve already made history and we could possibly be making some more history come June,” she says.

DeBoer’s partner, Jayne Rowse, says now that the arguments are wrapped up, the couple’s ready to start talking about wedding plans, in case the Supreme Court rules in their favor.
