They've done it before. Forty years ago, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) removed the making of law from the people when it declared legal abortion at any point during pregnancy as the law of the land. As you well know, this ruling on abortion has since cost millions of lives, hurt women, and shaped the U.S. political scene in a profound way.
On March 26, SCOTUS will hear oral arguments in two marriage cases: Hollingsworth v. Perry which comes to the Court out of the Proposition 8 litigation in California and United States v. Windsor which involves a challenge to the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) out of the U.S. Court of Appeals. If the Court upholds these cases, the ruling could have Roe v. Wade - like effects for marriage.
Marriage redefinition could be forced upon all Americans as the law of the land, regardless of how people voted to define marriage policy in their own states. Those who seek to redefine marriage claim that they have the overwhelming support of most Americans. We need to show them otherwise.
That's why on March 26, 2013 in Washington, D.C. supporters of marriage are gathering to march on Washington in support of marriage as it has always been defined. Please join us - those seeking to redefine marriage will be out in full force - we need to show the Court that America still cares about marriage!
