Massachusetts Suspends Gay Marriage Debate

Massachusetts lawmakers suspend debate on amending the state constitution to outlaw same-sex marriage. Lawmakers debated for two days, but failed to come to a compromise that would please both opponents of full marriage rights for same-sex couples and gay rights activists. The constitutional convention will resume March 11. NPR's Tovia Smith reports.
