urgent action needed for gay and human rights

Bussh pushes anti-gay marriage amendment. Denies even civil union rights to homosexuals.


Stop the Federal Marriage Amendment
In a clear ploy to pander to the religious right and save his sinking ship, President Bush today called on the Senate to hold an immediate vote on the Federal Marriage Amendment -- rallying our leaders to attack freedom, and write bigotry into our constitution.

If passed, the amendment would deny marriage rights to gay and lesbian Americans. It doesn't stop there. The aggressive amendment would add language to our constitution that could even strip such Americans of the right to civil unions, domestic partnerships and other legal protections.

Stop this assault on personal freedom. Take action today, and tell your senators to vote no on the Federal Marriage Amendment.
