As the Supreme Court considers the idea of making same sex marriage legal in the entire nation, 14 states stand in resistance.
It would be instructive to list those 14 states and indicate them by region.
The South—8 states—Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas
The Midwest—3 states—Ohio, Michigan, Missouri
The Great Plains—3 states—North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska
The only large populated states on this list are Georgia, Texas, Ohio and Michigan.
More than 70 percent of the nation’s population has the right to same sex marriage.
Once the Supreme Court considers the case of Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio and Michigan, we will have more than 80 percent covered, assuming the Court rules in favor of gay marriage, but it is likely that the Court will go all the way and make it legal in the other 10 resistant states left on the list!
