The People/Children Ignored Again
AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine’s governor has signed a bill making the state the fifth to allow gay marriage. [source]
Once again, children’s rights/needs are stomped by adults’ selfish wants. The Maine governor and representatives just erased the only social and legal encouragement for children’s rights to a mom and a dad. Sounds like a very wise and fruitful experiment.
What you can do:
- Please be aware of what is going on in your state. Call your representatives—remind them how you feel about marriage.
- If you don’t have a marriage amendment, encourage your reps to organize one.
- If your state has an amendment, encourage your reps to support the DOMA.
Update: Maine has a “People’s Veto” Option
The law the governor signed today does not go into effect until 90 days after the adjournment of the legislative session. When the session ends, the people can file for a “People’s Veto.” If they get 60,000 signatures before the 90 days are up, the law does not go into effect and the bill goes to a statewide referendum.
