Gov. Patrick issues statement on Wednesday's Supreme Court rulings

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

Gov. Deval Patrick released the following statement Wednesday on the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act and deny Proposition 8:

"By affirming the principle that people come before their government as equals, today's Supreme Court decision striking down DOMA is a win for the American people. I applaud the Court's decision on Prop. 8 in California as well. Freedom includes keeping government out of people's most personal and intimate choices, and affirming human dignity. Today's decisions do that."
