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.
Given former Governor Doyle's support for legalization we ask that you follow in his footsteps regarding this issue and with utmost haste, give equality to Wisconsin's nearly 200,000 LGBTQ persons. Actions speak louder than words, and we have chosen to take action.
A fair Wisconsin votes for the equality of her people, we ask for your support in helping us achieve the task of making Wisconsin a truly fair State.
