Carter says
states should decide marriage issue

While speaking to an audience at Emory University in Atlanta on Wednesday, former president Jimmy Carter said individual states should decide whether to allow gay couples to wed, not the federal government. "You can't take away what people believe in, and laws should be based on what each state believes in," he said, "because each one has their different beliefs."

Carter made the comments after a discussion about the lack of medical care in sub-Saharan Africa. Poverty and political turmoil should not deprive people in Liberia of quality medical care, he said. He told the audience that the Carter Center and the school have a "binding partnership" to increase medical efforts in Africa and that he believes in "universal medical care." (AP)
