Recognize Same-Sex Marriage as a Civil Right

Target: Joseph Biden, President of the United States of America

Goal: Sign off on legislation that recognizes same-sex marriages nationwide.

Legislators are rushing to ensure recognition of same-sex marriage continuing in the United States. In light of overturning Roe v. Wade this year and resulting implications on abortion rights, securing the right to marriage is urgent now more than ever. The law soon will make it to the desk of President Biden where it will wait for final approval, a move that cannot wait.

The bill that protects the rights of around half a million couples already married has passed through the Senate and now is pending with high hopes in the House of Representatives. The effort mostly protects those who currently are married and sets up further progress for those who may seek a civil union in the future. It also lays groundwork to defend against potential attacks on civil rights in the event the Supreme Court negates the 2015 court ruling initially legalizing same-sex marriage.

Fortunately, this new bill has overwhelming support and will rely on Biden’s swift action to push it into effect. Sign the petition below to urge President Biden to sign the bill recognizing same-sex marriage and stop stalling on recognizing this critical human right.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Biden,

A bill recognizing same-sex marriage soon will be on your desk and require the executive signature for approval. Finalizing this piece of legislation is crucial in the recent battle to avoid regression on civil rights as we saw with the overturning of Roe v. Wade. Despite everything going on in the White House, this should be at the top of the list.

While it does not ensure the future of same-sex unions to come, the bill is a major step for those already married. It also strengthens the country’s stance on its respect for human rights and paves the way to solidify a right to marriage that is long past due. Please do not let work on this issue regress as has happened with abortion rights recently.

It is time, now more than ever, to speak up for same-sex marriage rights. The nation is looking to you for guidance, and your signature on this bill as well as vocalizing your support for it is a necessary step to elevate the US as a leader in civil rights. We urge you to not stall on recognizing same-sex marriage and to endorse the cause right now.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    This pile of dog puke is a LIE! God does not, has not and WILL NOT condone this criminal bullshit. Leviticus 18:22, ‘You will not sleep with a man as with a woman, it is an abomination ‘, GOD said this and, know this. If you DARE say, “well God is wrong”, then you are the pathetic loser, condemned to hell for all eternity.
