Senator Warner Launches Anti-DoMA Petition

"Even though many states now recognize the rights of committed same-sex couples to marry, the federal government continues to discriminate. Same-sex couples are denied all sorts of legal rights – like access to their spouse’s insurance benefits and Social Security survivor benefits – because of an outdated law called DOMA.

That’s just wrong. All married couples should be entitled to the same legal rights – regardless of sexual orientation. 

The Supreme Court recently heard oral arguments challenging the Constitutionality of DOMA, and will rule on the issue soon."

You can find and sign the petition HERE.
