Moments ago, the United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit handed down a sweeping ruling striking down California’s Proposition 8 and—for the first time ever—finding a "right" to same-sex marriage in the United States Constitution!
This sets up an all-or-nothing showdown at the United States Supreme Court.
A Supreme Court victory would preserve the marriage laws of 44 states, denying same-sex marriage radicals in their campaign to force gay marriage on the entire nation in one fell swoop.
But if we lose at the Supreme Court, marriage will be jeopardized not just in California, but in all 50 states.
Marriage Supporter, we need you now more than ever.
I am confident we will win when this case finally receives a hearing at the Supreme Court. But the costs of litigating a Supreme Court case will run into the millions of dollars over the next year. The cert petition alone (asking the Supreme Court to hear the case) will likely cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to prepare. Our opponents will throw everything they have at this case—all of the resources they can bring to bear from the Hollywood elites and the gay billionaires like Tim Gill and John Striker who fund their cause.
We MUST have the resources to put on the best possible defense. And that is why NOM is so committed to helping fund the legal defense of Prop 8 and defend marriage laws all across the country. We have already given over $300,000 to help defend Prop 8 in court.
In the next week, we need to raise at least $100,000 online to immediately assist with the appeal to the Supreme Court.
Your donation is tax-deductible and will be kept confidential. Whether you can give $10,000, $1,000, $100 or $10, we need your help today! Every penny you give will go directly toward the Prop 8 legal expenses.
This is it. This is the whole ball game. If we lose here, the laws in 44 states defending marriage will crumble and we CANNOT let that happen!
Thank you in advance and God bless you!
