Defending the family

Georgia & New York Supreme Courts

The highest courts in Georgia and New York both gave those that support judicial restraint and traditional marriage twin victories in June. On the same day these two courts ruled that same sex couples did not have a "right" to marry, and that the citizens of those States have a right to limit marriage between one man and one woman.

"These two courts made the courageous decision to stand up against political correctness and for political restraint," said Public Advocate President Eugene Delgaudio. "We hope that other state courts follow their lead and that the people are allowed to continue to protect marriage through the democratic process. That is why the justices that were in the majority in these two cases are so deserving of the honor of June's family advocate of the month!"
