Repeal DOMA Now

Ken Cooper Jr started this petition to U.S. House of Representatives and

In 1996 a piece of legislation was passed by the Congress and signed into law by then-President Bill Clinton; DOMA (The Defense of Marriage Act) of 1996.

This law allows states to disregard the marriages (or civil unions) performed in another state. 

Congress and President Obama should press forward with the repeal of this law and allow gay citizens who wish to wed to fight for their right to do so in their home state.
