Utah--Vote for Traditional Marriage!


Dear HSLDA members and friends,

Utah voters have an opportunity to vote for traditional marriage and
parental rights on November 2. I am writing to urge you to vote "Yes"
on Amendment 3, which defines marriage in Utah as between "one man and
one woman." When federal legislators proposed to amend the U.S.
Constitution to prohibit homosexual "marriage" but to recognize "civil
unions," HSLDA was quick to object. Any law that assigns or modifies
parental rights affect the foundations of our families, and recent
litigation involving one Vermont couple (where "civil unions" were
first legalized) has proven that parental rights are directly affected
by legal relationships that fall short of true "marriage." Utah's
Amendment 3 makes it clear that Utah will only recognize families
founded on the lawful relationship of one man and one woman.

Homosexual activists are spending substantial amounts of money to
persuade Utah voters to vote "No" on Amendment 3, arguing that "it
goes too far." That means each Utah citizen who believes in
traditional marriage must work hard to persuade others to vote "Yes"
on this amendment. We thank you, in advance, for doing what you can
to uphold marriage in Utah.


Sincerely,

Scott W. Somerville
HSLDA Staff Attorney
