(Washington) A multi-media ad campaign was launched today to defeat the Federal Marriage Amendment. A vote on the FMA is expected next week in the U.S. Senate.
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., has announced his intention to bring up the Federal Marriage Amendment for a vote during the week of July 12th.
The ad campaign, sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign, will continue through next week's debate and vote, urging leaders not to write discrimination into the U.S. Constitution
"The Federal Marriage Amendment is unnecessary, discriminatory and undermines the Constitution," said HRC President Cheryl Jacques.
