Dear Marriage Supporter,
In a tremendous victory for NOM and our allies in the movement to preserve marriage, last December the United States Supreme Court granted the request of the proponents of California's Proposition 8 and agreed to review the decision of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals striking down California's marriage amendment. NOM was the biggest contributor to getting Proposition 8 on the ballot, and has directly contributed over $400,000 to its legal defense. The Court's justices will hear oral arguments in the case on March 26.
Today, the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade — the Supreme Court decision that changed our nation so profoundly — reminds us of how truly important it is to stay engaged in and informed about this current, critical case, which has the potential to impact the future of our nation just as profoundly as that fateful 1973 decision — for better, or for worse!
Therefore, to help you follow this case with the most up-to-date news and commentary, NOM is re-launching a completely revamped and improved www.Prop8Case.com!
This site chronicles the history of the Prop 8 case; features blog posts and twitter feeds with the most up-to-date news about the legal proceedings; and gives you the opportunity to subscribe for updates and stay informed.
Supporter, this case represents an incredible opportunity to win an enormous, historic victory for marriage. From the start of litigation over 4 years ago, NOM has been working tirelessly with the incredible legal team representing ProtectMarriage.com to defend Prop 8 and to assure that marriage and the rights of voters in California and throughout our nation receive the best defense possible.
All of our efforts come down to March 26th, when the justices hear oral arguments, and then the period until the end of June when the justices are writing their decision.
We won't let up until we win.
Please take a moment to check out the new website and stay informed about what may be the Roe v. Wade of marriage. And please stand with us throughout this case with your prayers and support, so that the legacy of the 2013 Supreme Court does not follow the same path as its predecessor from 1973.
Lastly, please help us spread the word. The more eyes on the court, the better!
