Psychological association calls for legalization of same-sex marriage

Interesting to see that the APA is finally calling for the legalization of same sex marriage.

As we saw same sex marriages in NY just weeks ago this seems a very good move at a very good time.

 

The scientific and professional organization's guiding body voted unanimously at its annual meeting this week in Washington to declare its support for "full marriage equality for same-sex couples."

The resolution "clarifies the Association's support for same-sex marriage" in light of new research, the group said. A similar resolution in 2004 opposed discrimination against same-sex relationships, but refrained from a more formal policy recommendation.

Dr. Clinton Anderson, APA associate executive director, said that the timing of the resolution is an indirect result of several states' legalization of marriage.
