Attorney Hansen Breaks Down Penn. Same Sex Marriage Petition

Posted: Updated:
NORRISTOWN -

Yesterday, the Pennsylvania State Department of Health filed a petition to stop Montgomery County from issuing marriage licenses to same sex couples.

The petition alleges that the Register of Wills repeatedly ignored the law and granted 34 licenses and registered six same sex marriages.

Governor Tom Corbett argues that state law defines marriage as between one man and one woman, and it needs to be enforced.

Attorney Kathleen Kane says this law is unconstitutional and she will not defend it in court.

To break it all down, Attorney Heather Hansen was live on "Good Day Philadelphia" Wednesday.
