Pro-Choice Leader Calls on Senate to Oppose Federal Marriage Amendment

WASHINGTON - July 14 - Statement of NARAL Pro-Choice America Interim President Elizabeth Cavendish

“The attempt to amend the U.S. Constitution to ban same-sex marriages is a direct attack on the fundamental American right to privacy. The U.S. Constitution protects individuals’ decisions about marriage, procreation, contraception and family relationships – and that’s how the majority of Americans like it.

NARAL Pro-Choice America urges the Senate to stop President Bush’s attempt to block civil liberties in order to please his right wing base. We strongly oppose the Federal Marriage Amendment and are proud to stand side-by-side with our colleagues in the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community to oppose this outrageous proposal.”
