With 3 justices dissenting, U. S. Supreme Court orders states to list same sex couples on birth certificates

Excerpt:

"On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled that the Constitution requires states to list married same-sex couples on their children’s birth certificate. "


"The per curiam decision marks a landmark victory for gay rights, confirming that the court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges protects all rights relating to marriage, not simply the recognition of marriage itself."

Justices Neil Gorsuch dissented and was joined in that opinion by Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito.
