Dear Marriage Supporter,
It's already February. January just flew by, and marriage battles all across the country are heating up!
Already in Illinois, Delaware, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Minnesota and Hawaii, activists and lobbyists are trying to force through legislation to legalize same-sex marriage. And at the federal level, we have two enormous Supreme Court cases looming.
With limited resources to start the year, NOM has already been extremely active. Consider:
We defeated a lame-duck session bill in Illinois that would have legalized same-sex marriage and are gearing up for a fight over a bill being put forth again in the coming weeks during the new legislative session;
Similarly, we defeated a proposed new law in Wyoming that would have legalized same-sex marriage and another that would have pushed through domestic partnerships in a way that has been used in other states as an excuse for the courts to impose same-sex marriage from the bench;
And all of this while organizing and gearing up for our March for Marriage on the day the Supreme Court hears oral arguments and deliberates the constitutionality of Proposition 8 and voter-initiated laws to protect marriage!
All of our efforts right now are all taking place at a critical time leading up to the Supreme Court's consideration of two landmark cases that could shape the future of marriage in dramatic ways . . . for better or for worse!
Marriage Supporter, you can make a difference! You and I can work together to save marriage and prevent a second Roe v. Wade moment for our great nation.
You are already a champion for marriage — someone who has stood side-by-side with NOM in the past. I know I can count on you to do so again in this critical time.
