INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana House Democratic Leader Scott Pelath from Michigan City today issued the following statement in the wake of U.S. District Judge Richard Young’s ruling that Indiana’s ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional:

“For years now, the people of this state have been dragged through what is turning out to be a completely unnecessary debate on matters that should be left to personal choice.

“The tide is changing across our country, as more judges and legislatures decide that we do not need to be involved with this issue.

“In Indiana, we need to take heed of this change. We need to stop this debate now. It is pointless to continue.”
