NCSF Applauds U.S. Supreme Court Ruling on the Texas Sodomy Law

WASHINGTON DC, JUNE 26, 2003 -- The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom applauds the U.S. Supreme Court ruling striking down the Texas sodomy law. The justices voted 6-3 to overturn their 1986 decision on Bowers v Hardwick (GA), stating that the sodomy law is an unconstitutional invasion of privacy and that by singling out gay people, it violates the Constitution's guarantee of equal protection under the law.
