DIS-006: Support of the Legal Right of Civil Marriage Between Any Two Consenting Adults

 
Support of the Legal Right of Civil Marriage Between Any Two Consenting Adults: Wisconsin Medical Society recognizes that denying civil marriage based on sexual orientation is discriminatory and contributes to health care disparities affecting same-sex households. The Wisconsin Medical Society supports the legal recognition of civil marriage between any two consenting adults; and opposes laws that restrict the rights, benefits, privileges, and responsibilities granted to married couples based on one’s gender and sexual orientation.
