2) Hiliary Clinton said, "Gay rights are human rights."
3) Same-sex couples should be allowed the express themselves publicly and celebrate their commitment in all states
1)Marriage should not be extended to same-sex couples because they can't produce children together
2) Gay marriage may lead to more children being raised in same-sex households, which are not an optimum environment because children need both a mother and father.
