Banning speech with a constitutional amendment is playing with fire
Topic - Laura Schauer Ives
New Mexico doesn't have a specific constitutional provision or law that allows same-sex marriages, but a judge said on Monday that prohibiting the unions is a form of sexual discrimination — and by proxy, ruled gay marriage legal.
"New Mexicans, both healthy and sick, now enjoy the comfort and peace of mind that come with knowing they can prevent a prolonged, agonized dying process at the end of life," ACLU of New Mexico Legal Director Laura Schauer Ives said in a statement.
"We were stunned and amazed," Ms. Ives said, about the judge's ruling, largely seen as a judicial stamp of approval for gay marriages to go forth in New Mexico.
