“The one thing that the opponents of this bill are trying to accomplish, is the one thing that you can’t stop us from doing. You can’t stop us from loving each other, you can’t stop us from getting married, you can’t stop us from pledging to forever to our God and to each other, and to support each other in the toughest of times. You can’t stop that.” – openly gay Md. Rep. Heather Mizeur during the March 2011 marriage debate on the Md. Assembly floor.
