Tell Boehner and Cantor: Drop your DOMA defense now

    1. Sponsored by

      Human Rights Campaign

A federal appeals court has just ruled that the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional. This marks a big victory in our fight to end a law that treats same-sex couples as second-class citizens.

Unfortunately, the anti-gay, Republican House leadership has shown no signs of dropping their case to defend this law – the law that President Obama bravely refused to continue fighting for last year.

Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor have already committed to spending up to $1.5 million in taxpayer funds on these cases. They need to hear from you now before they waste even one more cent appealing this discriminatory law – possibly to the Supreme Court.

Tell Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader Cantor: The writing is on the wall for DOMA. Stop wasting taxpayer money defending discrimination.
