United States Congress: Draft the Freedom of Affection Act to legalize marriage for all people


Building on the pursuit of happiness, the United States needs to be a better leader in protecting individual rights of all people. America is supposed to enable options for the widest variety of people because it is our variety that makes us stronger as one nation. Those who are defined as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered have earned the right to no longer be second-class citizens and deserve the ability to legally marry a partner of mutual affection.

Proposed Draft:
United States Constitution. Amendment 28. Freedom of Affection.
No law shall restrict the right to legally proclaim and document a union or marriage based on a person's religion, race, gender, or sexual orientation.

 

Letter to
United States United States Congress
Dear Senators and Representatives:

Building on the pursuit of happiness, the United States needs to be a better leader in protecting individual rights of all people. America is supposed to enable options for the widest variety of people because it is our variety that makes us stronger as one nation. Those who are defined as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered have earned the right to no longer be second-class citizens and deserve the ability to legally marry a partner of mutual affection.

A Constitutional change is required to further clarify the rights described in Amendment 1 for the freedom of expression. Mutual affection is an act of expression that must be protected for all people.

The proposed draft of the Constitution amendment is as follows:

United States Constitution. Amendment 28. Freedom of Affection.
No law shall restrict the right to legally proclaim and document a union or marriage based on a person's religion, race, gender, or sexual orientation.

Please consider this petition to help America do the right thing for marriage equality.


Sincerely,

Christopher Kniola
