Responding to the Outrage in Michigan
Don’t Get Frustrated – Instead Take Action
Promote the Truth about Marriage
SAN FRANCISCO, March 27,2014 -- On Friday, Michigan became another state where marriage has been redefined when a federal district court judge overturned the state’s marriage protection constitutional amendment. Scores of same-sex couples married on Saturday before the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals issued a stay at the request of Bill Schuette, the Michigan Attorney General. On Tuesday, the Appeals Court announced that the stay would remain in effect pending appeal.

SAN FRANCISCO, September 23, 2013 -- How would a grown woman feel if a man walked into the women's bathroom? Uncomfortable? Afraid?

Unprecedented Attack on Parental Rights
 Another Assault on Religious Liberty
Call Assembly Members TODAY
Ask Them to Vote “NO” on SB 1172
SAN FRANCISCO, August 13, 2012 -- How far are we willing to see parental rights erode in California? That is a critical question in light of the recent success of SB 1172, the contentious bill banning licensed therapists from providing therapy for children with same-sex attraction or gender confusion that does not affirm the behavior. This bill robs parents of their rights and obligations to seek the good for their children and act in their best interest.

California Legislature's Attack on
Parents' and Children's Rights
WASHINGTON, DC, August 2, 2012 -- “As of today, it is legal in California to give hormone blockers to an 11 year-old boy in order to delay the onset of puberty, but it could soon be illegal for a 17 year-old with unwanted same-sex attractions to receive professional counseling, even with parental consent.” Now, California Senator Ted Lieu, has removed any doubt as to why he introduced Senate Bill 1172: “The attack on parental rights is exactly the whole point of the bill because we don’t want to let parents harm their children.”

Opponents' Lies Could Lead to
Marriage Protection Upset in North Carolina

SAN FRANCISCO, April 27, 2012 -- Opponents to traditional marriage in North Carolina, in a desperate effort to defeat a critical marriage protection amendment, are releasing deceptive ads aimed at confusing voters—and, distressingly, they seem to be working. The Vote for Marriage NC campaign is urgently asking for your help. They need thousands of volunteers to call North Carolina voters between now and May 8. That is just a week and a half away.
