"Utah trio asks court to allow polygamy"

The Daily Herald (Provo, Utah)

Here is a polygamy-rights case moving up through the courts, as reported yesterday in "Central Utah's Newspaper":

The case is being watched by adherents of plural marriage, who hope it will be eventually taken up by the U.S. Supreme Court, which last considered the issue in 1878, said Mary Batchelor, of Sandy, executive director of the group Principle Voices.

"It's time for it to be readdressed," she said in an interview. "We live in a society of family arrangements that simply are, no matter how people want to define them. They are not labeled criminal and we don't believe our family arrangements should be labeled criminal either."

Read the whole article (Sept. 26, 2006). Note the vigorous local online discussion at the end of it.

More polygamy in the media: On September 28th the Dr. Keith Ablow TV talk show aired "Inside the Lives of a Polygamist Family", interviewing five women. The video does not seen to be available, but you can read (and add to) the discussion on the show's comments page.
