“The Pennsylvania Family Institute expressed disappointment and dismay today at the decision of Gov. Tom Corbett not to appeal the decision by United States District Judge John E. Jones III overturning the historic and long-standing definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Marriage between one man and one woman has no parallels. Social science and human experience tells us there is nothing so beneficial to the well being of children as a mom and a dad committed to each other in marriage. This standard should be encouraged – not redefined and dismissed in favor of a new social experiment that could negatively impact children and families. Despite the setback, the Pennsylvania Family Institute will continue to fight for public policy that’s best for children and families.” – The Pennsylvania Family Institute, via press release.
