The Illinois House today approved a bill that will make Illinois the 15th state to legalize same-sex marriage. Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn has said he would sign the bill into law should it reach his desk. The vote was 61-54.
It’s been a long road but one we’ve supported every step of the way. To us, it is a fundamental human rights issue. We are pleased to see a majority of Illinois lawmakers voted to make sure our home state is on the correct side of history.
Every individual should have the right to marry any person they love, regardless of gender. Here in Illinois, it’s looking like that will soon be possible.
