Freedom To Marry: Our Closing Argument
Via press release:
Ahead of Tuesday's oral arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court, Freedom to Marry released a national TV ad showing that America, all of it, is ready for same-sex couples to marry. The spot begins airing on three Sunday morning political shows and 60 Minutes, in addition to national cable programs throughout next week.
“With this latest ad, Freedom to Marry is summing up our closing argument, in hopes of closing our doors after getting the national win,” said Evan Wolfson, president of Freedom to Marry. “After 30-plus years of doing marriage work, I am gratified that we're in such a strong place as we head into court on Tuesday. The American people have resoundingly and unequivocally embraced the side of love and fairness. We hope the Supreme Court does the right thing and agrees with more than 60 federal and state courts that have held marriage discrimination unconstitutional. America is ready for the freedom to marry. It's time.”
60% of Americans support the freedom to marry, according to a Washington Post/ABC poll released last week. In the event that the Supreme Court rules in favor of marriage nationwide this summer, Freedom to Marry, which was founded in 2003 and is the sole national organization dedicated to winning marriage for same-sex couples, will shut its doors, its mission having been completed.
