ABC News Providing the Whole Picture Across All Platforms
On How the Court’s Decisions Impact Americans
ABC News is providing comprehensive coverage of the Supreme Court’s rulings on same-sex marriage across all broadcasts and platforms, giving viewers the whole picture on how the decision will impact the modern American family. The Supreme Court handed down two rulings today, bolstering same-sex marriage by ruling part of the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional and allowing a lower court ruling to stand that struck down California’s Proposition 8 ballot initiative, which defines marriage as between one man and one woman.
