to Veto Same Sex Marriage!
Please Take Action Today!
On Friday, September 7th, the California Senate by a vote of 21 to
15 passed AB 43, the bill that would legalize same-sex marriage in California.
The same bill was vetoed by Gov. Schwarzenegger at the end of the last
session of the legislature, and he has given some indication that he
will also veto the bill this time as well.
It is essential that Californians encourage him to veto AB
We are urging all Californians to phone the Governor’s office.
You can call 916-445-2841 at any time of day and follow the prompts
to register your opposition to bill AB 43.
If you prefer, you can also send him an email here.
After filling in your name and email address, simply choose the subject
“Gender-neutral marriage.” On the next screen, select the
“con” option. You can also include any comments you wish
to make, such as urging him to veto the bill because Californians already
directed that marriage should be only between a man and a woman when
they overwhelmingly passed Prop 22 in 2000.
Because the Governor has not committed to veto this bill, it is important
that he hear from all pro-family Californians urging him to do so.
Please call or email today!
By an overwhelming margin in 2000, Californians passed Proposition
22. This ballot measure clearly defined marriage in California as only
between a man and a woman.
Almost immediately however, and in clear contempt for the will of the
majority of Californians, the Democrat-controlled legislature immediately
began to undermine Prop 22 through passing domestic partnerships for
same-sex individuals and by other means.
In the last legislature, they passed a same-sex marriage bill even
though the California Constitution does not allow the legislature to
repeal or amend a law adopted directly by the people as Prop 22 was.
Governor Schwarzenegger vetoed that bill, saying that the people or
the courts should decide the issue. Yet, the Democrat-controlled legislature
has again passed the same bill and will be sending it to the governor
There is every reason to hope that the Governor will again veto this
bill, especially since the issue of same-sex marriage is currently before
the California Supreme Court, which is expected to rule early next year
on the constitutionality of California’s law limiting marriage
only to a man and a woman.
However, because he has not clearly stated that he will veto this bill,
it is important that he hear from pro-family Californians urging him
to do so.
