When Trampf tried to answer questions for Heyning, who was having trouble responding after regaining consciousness, the hospital staff ignored her. “That’s when I realized I really didn’t have any rights in the situation,” Trampf said in a recent telephone interview. “Heterosexual couples don’t have to pull out anything.” Judges have overturned numerous states’ gay marriage bans since last summer, when the U.S. Supreme Court ordered the federal government to recognize state-sanctioned gay marriages. Same-sex marriage is now legal in 19 states and the District of Columbia, and the remaining state bans all face legal challenges. Federal judges struck down the bans in Wisconsin and Indiana in June, and hundreds of couples married in the two states before those rulings were put on hold following requests by the states’ attorneys general. The cases were combined on appeal because both states’ federal courts fall under the 7th Circuit. Attorneys for Wisconsin and Indiana will defend the bans Tuesday. Indiana’s attorney general argued in the state’s final brief ahead of the hearing that traditional marriage is in the interest of the state, while a recent brief by Wisconsin’s attorney general contends there is no fundamental right to gay marriage. Attorneys for both sides expect the issue to eventually land in the U.S.
