Just a few weeks ago, USAToday reported that efforts are underway in more than adozen states to limit the ability of gay, lesbian, bisexual andtransgender individuals and same-sex couples to adopt.
Last month, the so-called "Marriage ProtectionAmendment" - an amendment that would write discriminationagainst same-sex couples into our U.S. Constitution - wasscheduled for a June vote.
There is no doubt: Theright-wing extremists are back to their dirty political tricksin a critical election year and the rights and lives of GLBTfamilies are at stake. Click here to help the Human Rights Campaignstop them.
Personally, I'm sickenedby these efforts to mobilize the extreme conservative vote.It's bad enough that they attack GLBT relationships andprotections for those relationships, but it is truly appallingwhen they start to go after children in need of lovinghomes.
The good news is that, so far, we've stopped the attacks onfamilies from gaining political steam. Even before theextremists had publicly emerged, we conducted polling to gaugehow people felt about denying children in need homes with GLBTpeople. We learned that the public has little appetite for suchdraconian measures against our families. Certainly these pollingresults have discouraged extremist efforts to move the adoptionissue forward in the massive way they planned. We will continueto do additional polling in key states.
