KIMT NEWS 3 — While the Supreme Court came down with major decisions on gay rights Wednesday, the work is not over for supporters of same-sex marriage.

It is still up to individual states whether they want to make same-sex marriage legal.

After Wednesday’s rulings, 13 states now have equal marriage laws, but activists will be pushing for all 50.

One political analyst said they will not be the only ones wanting to make more changes.

“What the Obama administration has to decide now is how aggressively they want to pursue the word marriage throughout federal statutes and how it’s applied to homosexual couples beyond just the federal benefits issue,” said Political Analyst Dr. Eric Shoars.

He said now that DOMA has been struck down, he expects activists pushing their state governments to move forward with same-sex marriage laws.
