Dear Marriage Supporter,
We have only 3 days to defeat gay-marriage activists in Illinois, where the General Assembly adjourns this Friday.
Our opponents have been fighting for months in this deep blue state to pass a bill redefining marriage — but our side has been fighting even harder to stop them. NOM has dedicated over one hundred twenty-five thousand dollars to this critical fight.
This is our last opportunity to score a legislative victory for marriage before the Supreme Court hands down their rulings on marriage next month.
Our sources on the ground tell us the vote could be as soon as tomorrow or the day after (Thursday). Gay-marriage activists are claiming they have the votes, but we know they don't yet!
That's why we need everyone, and I do mean everyone, to pitch in...and also to help spread the word: please use this link to contact your state legislators if you live in Illinois or forward this to all of your friends and family:
Tell them all to VOTE NO on SB10. Vote NO on Gay Marriage.
If you can call your state legislator, that is the best option!
We need to get the word out far and wide that Illinois hangs in the balance, and so does marriage — across America.
Already gay-marriage advocates in other states are preparing campaigns to REPEAL existing State Constitutional protections for marriage. With your help NOM will be there to help those states preserve marriage...
In addition to fighting to protect marriage in Illinois, NOM is already planning for the next stage of the marriage debate, ensuring that no matter what the Supreme Court decides, marriage is upheld and strengthened in our culture.
And please continue to pray and act on behalf of marriage in Illinois.
Only 3 days — marriage is worth defending!
