Governor statement on same-sex marriage ruling

MEDIA RELEASE

A U.S. District Court judge Wednesday upheld Hawaii law banning same-sex marriages.

Gov. Neil Abercrombie, who contended that the law violated the Constitution, released the following statement:

“I respectfully disagree and will join the plaintiffs if they appeal this decision. To refuse individuals the right to marry on the basis of sexual orientation or gender is discrimination in light of our civil unions law. For me this is about fairness and equality.”

Couple are permitted to enter into civil unions in Hawaii.
