Pass Senate Bill 2, Allowing Same-Sex Civil Unions in Colorado


On Wednesday, April 25, 2012, the Colorado Senate voted 23-12 to pass Senate Bill 2, allowing same-sex civil unions in Colorado.

The bill will now be voted on by the Colorado House of Representatives. When a very similar bill passed the Senate last year, it was defeated by one vote in the House Judiciary Committee and as a result was never voted on by the entire House.

Coloradans overwhelmingly support the passage of Senate Bill 2. A poll released on April 13 by Public Policy Polling shows that 62% of Colorado voters support the bill, and only 32% oppose it. Civil unions have so much support in Colorado, even Republican affiliated groups like One Colorado support the passage of this bill.

As Republican Senator Jean White said when she voted for same-sex civil unions in the Senate, “Senate Bill 2 is about respect for all loving, committed relationships. The Declaration of Independence says ‘liberty and justice for all.’ That means for all. I’m a Republican. I believe in individual freedom and keeping government out of our lives. So how can I vote no?”

The legislative session ends May 9, so we have to hurry.

Please join us in imploring the Colorado House of Representatives and Speaker Frank McNulty to pass SB-2, allowing same-sex civil unions in Colorado.

I support legalizing same-sex civil unions in Colorado. All Coloradans, regardless of sexual preference, deserve the same same rights and legal protections that straight married couples enjoy.



Coloradans overwhelmingly support the passage of Senate Bill 2. A poll released on April 13 by Public Policy Polling shows that 62% of Colorado voters support the bill, and only 32% oppose it. 75% of independent voters in Colorado support the measure.



Please vote to legalize same-sex civil unions.




Sincerely,
