Supreme Court Justice Says Same-Sex Marriage Is a Right

Supreme Court justices say same-sex marriage is a right that should be recognized by the Constitution.

But Justice Elena Kagan says the law is “an abuse of power” that should not be passed.

The justices are in a closely watched case involving the constitutionality of California’s Proposition 8.

Kagan wrote in a majority opinion last week that the state’s law violated the Constitution because it “makes the federal government the arbiter of the nature of marriage and its meaning.”
