According to Schwarzenegger, "For the hundreds of thousands of Californians in gay and lesbian households ... this decision affirms the full legal protections and safeguards I believe everyone deserves."

He added, "Today's decision is by no means California's first milestone, nor our last, on America's road to equality and freedom for all people."

Hasta la vista, Prop 8.
