Sacramento News 10 reports:
The California Supreme Court has upheld a new law that grants registered domestic partners many of the same rights as those given to heterosexual married couples.
The justices unanimously upheld appellate and trial court rulings that the sweeping measure does not conflict with a voter-approved initiative defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
What AB 205 Says…
Registered domestic partners have the same rights, protections, and benefits, and are subject to the same responsibilities, obligations, and duties under [California state] law, whether they derive from statutes, administrative regulations, court rules, government policies, common law, or any other provisions or sources of law, as are granted to and imposed upon spouses.” Cal. Fam. Code 297.5(a). Registered domestic partners will have less security than heterosexual married couples if they travel or move outside of California.
In other words, domestic partner’s must look to the rights granted to spouses (married individuals of the oposite sex) in order to determine thier rights.
How is this not marriage by another name?
