Justice For All has distributed quite a few emails about opposing this legislation - and I apologize for yet another...but this is good news to report! The attempt to politicize the lives of millions of Americans and their families by writing discrimination into a document created to protect rights and liberties has effectively failed once again.
The HRC press release regarding the vote ("Politics Of Discrimination and Distraction Fail as Senate Resoundingly Defeats Federal marriage Amendment") can be found here.
The ACLU press release regarding the vote ("ACLU Applauds Senate For Rejecting Discriminatory Constitutional Amendment, Says House Must Also Reject President's Anti-Gay Agenda") can be found here.
Thank you for helping to defeat discrimination!
