The Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment provides: 'No State shall '¦ deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.'
And now, the Supreme Court is poised to answer the question of whether this Clause requires States to license marriages between two people of the same sex. The best guess is that the Court will decide the question in late June. Does the Equal Protection Clause require States to license same-sex marriages, or will they decide that marriage should be between a man and a woman?
