Dear Marriage Supporter,
President Obama is working overtime to impose the dangerous agenda of LGBT extremists. As you know, he's already demanding that every public school in America comply with an edict opening school bathrooms, showers and locker rooms to members of the opposite sex based on "gender identity." This risks the privacy and safety of girls who could be confronted by biological men in the most intimate of facilities.
Now Obama's Department of Health & Human Services has ruled that doctors, hospitals, insurers and taxpayer-funded health programs must provide hormone therapy and sex reassignment surgeries for "transgender" persons. Our taxes and insurance premiums will pay for this!
NOM is committed to fighting President Obama and to derailing this illegal, dangerous, expensive agenda. We're working to pressure Congress to put an end to this, and will support states, school districts, and parents who are planning to sue the Obama administration. We're also working to educate the public about what is going on, and rally the grassroots to protest.
But we need your help if we are going to be successful. I'm asking you to make a contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250 or even $500 or more so that we have the funds we need to take on the Obama administration in Congress, the courts and the court of public opinion. If you are able to give a higher amount, please prayerfully consider doing so. We need your assistance today.
Thankfully, Americans across the country are calling out President Obama's illegal, unwarranted redefinition of "sex" to include "gender identity." NOM's chairman, John Eastman, is part of the legal team representing North Carolina in their fight against the administration's attack on their state's laws. Over fifty families in Illinois have filed a federal lawsuit to challenge the US Department of Education's decision to force a local high school to open the girls' showers, bathrooms and locker rooms to a young man who "identifies" as a female. Nearly 100 lawmakers in Pennsylvania sent a strongly-worded letter to the administration expressing their "extreme outrage at the legally spurious" position of President Obama.
NOM is already hard at work to support these efforts, and others, to challenge the illegal actions of President Obama. But we need your help to be successful. Please consider making a financial contribution of whatever you can afford — $15, $25, $100 or even $1,000 — so that we have the funds we need to put into this critical fight.
We are urging the GOP leadership in Congress to immediately convene hearings and vote to block the administration from carrying out their illegal regulations. We cannot allow Congress to sit idly by and watch President Obama impose this dangerous, illegal agenda on our children and grandchildren.
The idea that our tax dollars and the insurance premiums we pay must now go to pay for hormone therapy and sex reassignment surgery is insane. People who suffer from gender confusion deserve our compassion and prayers, but they do not deserve our tax dollars and insurance premiums to pay for "treatments" that will harm rather than help them. It flies in the face of common sense and ignores the biologic — and biblical — reality that gender is biologically based and not based on "feelings" and "emotions." We should help gender confused people to love the person God made them to be, not to pursue a false fantasy that taking powerful chemicals or undergoing surgical mutilation will somehow fix the issues they are struggling with.
Sadly, common sense is not something the Obama Administration understands. They would rather kowtow to LGBT extremists who think they can bully the American people into supporting their dangerous agenda. That's why they, and President Obama, must be challenged at every opportunity — in the courts, through legislation, and at the ballot box.
Many groups have been pushed to the sidelines by ugly threats from gay activists, but NOM has never wavered. We have stood strong and fought hard for the truth of marriage, for religious liberty and to maintain and respect the complementarity of the sexes.
We are counting on you to continue to stand with us during this critical time. Please do so by making the most generous financial gift possible so that we have the resources to be effective. Your contribution of $25, $50, $75, $100 or $250 or more will be put to immediate use in the fight.
Thank you for your support.
PS — After you have made your own contribution to support our work opposing President Obama's dangerous "gender identity" agenda, please forward this request to anyone you know who might also support us. We must reach thousands of grassroots Americans to successfully challenge President Obama's illegal and extreme gender regulations.
