Tina Liebling on Civil Rights
No government infringement of decision to marry
We must protect the freedom of every Minnesotan to speak their mind, maintain their privacy, and make their own important decisions. Government should not infringe on personal decisions that don't impact the health and safety of others--
such as who to love and marry, whether and where to worship, which bathroom to use, and how and when to reproduce.
