Attorneys File Injunction to Stop Prop. 8

Unhappy with Democracy, Bush v. Gore Rivals Join to Ask Fed Court to Overturn Proposition

by Peter J. Smith,

Dissatisfied with the recent ruling from the California Supreme Court on Proposition 8, the former rivals in the Bush v. Gore decision have joined together this time to urge a federal appeals court to nullify the Californian citizens' vote to ban same-sex "marriage."


The lawsuit is a first for Olson and Boies's newly created group, American Foundation for Equal Rights. Any appeal of the case will likely go to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, a federal court known for its judicial activism. A further appeal will likely go to the US Supreme Court, which will either end up upholding Proposition 8, or possibly legalizing same-sex "marriage" throughout the United States and rejecting the expressed will of the people of California as indicated by the passed referendum question on the issue.

California Supreme Court Upholds Proposition 8

From Pearl Diver:

"This morning the Supreme Court of California ruled 6-1 in favor of Proposition 8. I am immensely relieved that this state’s judiciary was inspired to reaffirm the right of the people of California to amend our own Constitution as we see fit. I am relieved that my Nov. 4th vote didn’t come to naught. I am relieved that, at least for a time, marriage is as it should be in the great state of California."

Wisconsin marriage amendment goes to black robes

by Charlie Butts,

Yet another state is finding its marriage amendment going to its Supreme Court.

Eighteen months ago, 59 perceont of Wisconsin voters approved a state constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Now a group of seven justices will decide if that amendment meets the state constitutional requirement of a single-issue amendment. Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council explains.

"The Supreme Court of Wisconsin has determined that they will consider whether or not Wisconsin's marriage amendment, that was passed by nearly 60 percent of the electorate back in November of 2006, is constitutional," she says.

New York Assembly Votes to Change Definition of Marriage

By Kathleen Gilbert,

The New York State Assembly approved a bill late Tuesday by a 89 to 52 margin to extend the legal definition of marriage to include same-sex couples.

The bill was introduced last month by Governor David Paterson.

The measure, like a similar version in 2007, passed easily in the Democrat-ruled Assembly; however, the earlier measure failed to garner support in the state Senate. Senate Democrats now constitute a slim majority, but the fate of the current bill is uncertain.

If the bill is passed, New York would become the sixth state to legalize same-sex "marriage."

Contact your New York State Senator and tell them to vote no on the same-sex "marriage" bill!

Record High 40% of Births to Unwed Mothers

The CDC's National Center of Health Statistics released a report today on children born to single mothers. The data backs up claims that children are better off in a stable home with a married mother and father.

"Surveys show that children born to two-parent families are generally better off," said the CDC's Ventura. "Health outcomes are just not as good for those born to unmarried women."

The report lists low birth weight, preterm birth, infant mortality and limited social and financial resources as hardships more likely to be faced by a child born to a single mother.

Popenoe, the co-director of the non-partisan National Marriage Project at Rutgers University, says that the rising rejection of marriage means that children will suffer the negative consequences."

Take Action to Prevent Washington, DC from Recognizing Homosexual Marriage

The American Family Association reports:

"The District of Columbia Council has voted 12-1 to recognize homosexual "marriages" from states where homosexual marriage is now legal - Massachusetts, Iowa, Vermont and Connecticut."

The bill must now have Congressional approval. However, if no vote is taken before June 6, then the bill automatically becomes law.

AFA: "It appears that Democrats will not allow a vote on the bill. By doing this, they will keep their members from having to go on record as being for or against recognition of homosexual marriage."

Take Action now and let your Congressman know you want a recorded vote!

Obama White House Urges Tax-Funded Abortion-on-Demand in D.C.

by Kathleen Gilbert,

President Obama's budget recommendations unveiled yesterday are being criticized by the National Right to Life Committee for recommending the re-introduction of taxpayer-funded abortion in Washington, D.C.

The White House submission urges the House and Senate to repeal a law known as the Dornan Amendment that prevents tax-funded abortion, except for cases of rape, incest, or threat to the mother's life, in the District of Columbia for several years.

Because Congress holds legislative authority over the District of Columbia, the district's budget must be appropriated by Congress through an annual appropriations bill. The White House called for the ban to be replaced with a requirement that would apply only to funds specifically contributed for federal program purposes.

"If Congress goes along with the Obama proposal, the predictable result will be tax funding of several thousand elective abortions annually, including roughly 1,000 abortions annually that would not otherwise occur," said Douglas Johnson, legislative director for the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC).

"Any member of Congress who votes for a bill that contains the White House proposal is, in reality, voting for tax-funded abortion on demand with congressionally appropriated funds."

Stop Harvey Milk Day

From Beetle Blogger:

"If California’s Senate has it’s way, California’s public school children will be singing the praises of homosexual activist Harvey Milk, and his radical multisexual agenda every May 22nd. In a non-opt out day— schools, children and parents will have no choice but to celebrate this man and the radical agenda of his political movement.

Sound familiar? It is. The governor vetoed this identical legislation less than a year ago saying that support of Harvey Milk and his policies were not a part of public school education. He was right, but those pushing the same-sex agenda in our public schools are hoping that this is the year he’ll change his mind."

Arkansas voters who signed petitions and then voted to limit adoption strictly to married couples are getting unwelcomed publicity.

Some homosexual activists did not like the petition and its success at the ballot box. Jerry Cox is head of the Arkansas Family Council.

"Now this gay group out of Massachusetts has acquired the names of all the people who signed the petition to place the measure on the ballot here in Arkansas," he notes. "They got those from the secretary of state, and th ey've entered those into a database, and they've put them up on the Internet."
