Contributing sentiments towards policy:

57% : [That] same line of cases protects the right to marry, which includes both Loving, the interracial marriage case, and Obergefell, the same-sex marriage case.
53% : Given political attitudes in the state, Hendricks says preemptive action from state lawmakers to codify marriage equality in the state is likely.
51% : As legal and political experts explained to Denver7, other currently recognized rights by the court -- such as same-sex marriage, interracial marriage, and contraception access -- rest on the same right to privacy as identified in Roe v. Wade.
46% :"The right to abortion is part of a modern edifice of constitutional rights that are usually grouped under the general concept of the right to privacy," Hendricks explained.
44% : "In that sense, Colorado would need to act affirmatively to protect the right to same-sex marriage if Obergefell were overruled," Hendricks explained.
43% :If Obergefell v. Hodges were to be overruled by the Supreme Court in the future -- and the issue of same-sex marriage returned to the states -- the exact implications for impacted couples in Colorado remain to be seen, according to Hendricks.
42% : This has lead many to speculate that decisions such as Obergefell v. Hodges, which legalized same-sex marriage nationwide, could face a similar fate.
41% : Voters in Colorado approved a constitutional amendment that banned same-sex marriage in 2006, but that ban was struck down by a U.S. District Court in 2014 -- about a year before the Supreme Court ruled in Obergefell.
39% : "And to ensure that our decision is not misunderstood or mischaracterized, we emphasize that our decision concerns the constitutional right to abortion and no other right," Alito writes.
38% : "Nothing in this opinion should be understood to cast doubt on precedents that do not concern abortion."
