***California became the second state in the union to legalize gay marriage. Unfortunately, this November, Californians will have an opportunity to vote on Proposition 8, which would ELIMINATE the right of same-sex couples to marry. A statewide coalition called Equality for All is working diligently to prevent Proposition 8 from passing. Please donate to Equality for All. Proponents of Proposition 8 have raised nearly $20 million for a statewide media campaign to convince voters to pass this effort to permanently discriminate against gays and lesbians. We, as a nation, cannot allow Proposition 8 to pass, because if it does, then opponents of gay marriage will turn their attention to the rest of the country. This is about equality and fairness. Same-sex couples deserve the same dignity and respect that heterosexual couples enjoy. Same-sex couples deserve the same hospital-visitation rights, tax benefits and inheritance benefits that heterosexual couples receive. Please, today, go to www.equalityforall.com to donate so that they can combat Proposition 8's media blitz. And, for those in California, VOTE NO on PROP. 8!
