      Madison, WI

Since 2004 Wisconsin has flat out banned gay marriage, only granting domestic partnerships. With almost 200,000 openly gay citizens living in the state, it is a violation of their human rights to not allow them the equal treatment of their straight composite couples.

The majority of the Wisconsin state government is against gay marriage with the republicans outnumbering the democrates 19:15 in the senate and 60:38 in the state assembly. In 2009 Former Gov. Jim Doyle proposed legalizing same-sex marriage which was eventiually shot down. (Stats, 2011)

Marrige is a human right and should be availible to all regardless of sexual orientation. Join this petition to add your voice to the many who already speak out.

      Because love knows no gender. Because this nation was founded on the principles of freedom and justice for all. And most of all, because we are all human beings, regardless of sexual orientation.

      Although I myself am heterosexual, I find it horrifying that our own government, which preaches freedom and equality, is still banning same sex partners the right of marriage that old citizens should possess. What's worse, it seems that the government has no argument to back up their heinous injustice other than that they are afraid of change.

      Someday I might want the financial benefits of marriage.
