Equality Illinois: Supreme Court Ruling Shows Civil Unions Not Equivalent to Marriage


Supporters of same-sex marriage say Wednesday’s landmark Supreme Court ruling bolsters their efforts to get it approved in Illinois.

 

The gay rights group Equality Illinois says the high court decision shows there is no justifiable reason to deny same-sex couples the same benefits that heterosexual married couples receive.

 

Supporters also say the ruling… which extends federal tax and other benefits to legally-married gay couples… shows that civil unions are not an adequate substitute for full marriage equality.
