US Court Ruling Won't Change PA Gay Marriage Ban



The U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on gay marriage says nothing that would change the validity of Pennsylvania's ban.
 
Despite the Supreme Court's decision Wednesday, gay marriage bans still stand in Pennsylvania and roughly three dozen other states.
 
Pennsylvania's constitution, however, does not ban gay marriage. Every other state in the northeastern United States allows same-sex marriage except New Jersey, and it allows civil unions. Pennsylvania doesn't allow civil unions, and a spokesman for Republican Governor Tom Corbett says he supports a state constitutional ban on gay marriage.
 
Two Democrats running for governor, John Hanger and Tom Wolf, say it's time for Pennsylvania to allow gay couples to legally marry. Another Democrat running for governor, U.S. Representative Allyson Schwartz, says every American should have the legal right to marry who they love.
