Congresswoman Chellie Pingree says marriage is a basic human right for All Americans
"It's wonderful that President Obama has taken a position that I and millions of other Americans have long held—that marriage is a basic human right that all Americans deserve. As the fight for marriage equality continues here in Maine and around the country, President Obama has sent a clear and strong message of that all marriages deserve equal protection. There is still much work to be done but I am delighted that we have the President firmly on our side."
