Dear Friends of Marriage,

On Tuesday, the Pennsylvania Senate Judiciary Committee voted 8-6 to table the Marriage Protection Amendment, effectively killing SB207 for this year.

The eight votes to kill the amendment included three senators who voted for a similar measure in committee just two years ago.

Please take a moment to call and politely, yet forcefully, tell these three senators how disappointed you are that they would turn their backs on marriage and on the people of Pennsylvania, who overwhelmingly support the Marriage Protection Amendment.  Especially if you live in their district, call and tell them you want, and expect, leaders who will stand for what is right, and not sell out to special interests.

Senators Who Sold Out on Marriage (Voted Yes in 2008 / No in 2010)
Sen. Lisa Boscola (D): District 18- Bethlehem (610) 868-8667
Sen. Mike Stack (R): District 5- Philadelphia (215) 281-2539
Sen. Mary Jo White (R): Dist. 21- Franklin, Butler, etc. (814) 432-4345

Many thanks to each of you who took the time to call and write your senators earlier this week. While falling short this year, our work is far from over. We'll be back -- making this vote an issue in the November elections, and then working to gain votes for passage next year.
