Bachmann: Overturn Iowa Marriage Equality

Bachmann: Overturn Iowa Marriage Equality


Rep. Michele Bachmann's position against marriage equality has long been established. But press inquiries and impromptu debates with LGBT activists in recent days on the campaign trail have further served to articulate her position with the Iowa Caucus just weeks away.

Asked about the Iowa Supreme Court decision in 2009 striking down laws that bar marriage rights for same-sex couples, Bachmann told Fox News Sunday, "Marriage, historically, for all human history has been between a man and a woman. It hasn't been the same-sex marriage," Bachmann said. "And remember that in Iowa, it was judges that made the decision -- not the legislature, which are the people's representatives, and certainly, not the people." (Video here.)

Confronted by a young gay rights advocate last week about her stance, Bachmann replied that gays and lesbians do have the civil right to marry -- so long as their spouse is of the opposite sex.
