This morning the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments on whether lesbians and gays have the right to marry here in California. In just a few moments, we'll retrace the history of Proposition 8, from the moment it became a ballot measure in 2008. 

First we go to reporter Scott Shafer of member station KQED who is in Washington D.C. at the Supreme Court.

Supporters and opponents of California's Proposition 8 ban on gay marriage have descended on the steps of the Supreme Court. We'll talk to someone posted outside the high court to get a sense of what people are talking about.
