All eyes on the Supreme Court, but donât let Congress off the hook with DOMA!
The Supreme Court is expected to announce soon whether it will hear a number of cases challenging the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), Californiaâs Proposition 8 and Arizonaâs law that stripped state employees who are lesbian, gay and bisexual of domestic partner benefits. (No such news emerged from the high court today.Â Get more details here, here and here.)
Donât let Congress off the hook with DOMA!
While we await news from the Supreme Court in the following days, we continue to press Congress to repeal DOMA by passing the Respect for Marriage Act.
Please take a quick moment right now to urge lawmakers to pass this critical legislation. Do it here and do it now. Thanks!
