(LifeSiteNews) – A recent poll conducted last month shows that only 30% of Republicans would support a nationwide law to legalize same sex “marriage” compared to 57% of Republicans who would oppose it.
Following the overruling of Roe v. Wade, there is greater possibility for other Supreme Court decisions to be reversed, including the Obergefell v. Hodges case, which required acceptance of same-sex “marriage” in all 50 states.
The Senate will vote on a Democratic bill to reinforce this ruling and codify forced recognition of same sex “marriage” after the November midterms.
We need YOU to be a voice for natural marriage and the constitutional freedom of individual states by SIGNING and SHARING this petition calling on Republican U.S. Senators to oppose the deceitfully named "Respect for Marriage Act!"
Leftist members of Congress have, once again, opted to ignore the myriad of issues facing our country — be it the border crisis, gas prices, inflation, crime, and more — to instead virtue-signal by introducing their radical new bill, the so-called "Respect for Marriage Act," which, among other things, would repeal the Defense of Marriage Act.
And with the radical left continuing its attempts to redefine words, people, and events to better suit their agenda and advance their political narratives, it should come as no surprise that their latest target happens to be natural marriage.
But marriage is not a political tool for the left to manipulate and destroy; it is the key building block of our society, and the primary basis for the safe, responsible upbringing of our children.
Republican members of the U.S. Senate still have a chance to defend natural marriage by stopping this bill from becoming law, but we need to let them know that the American people oppose the left's seemingly never-ending efforts to degrade the sanctity of marriage.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to Republican members of the U.S. Senate, insisting that they vote against the "Respect for Marriage Act" when it comes before them for any form of vote.

The legislation in question, formally filed as H.R.8404 and sponsored by liberal New York Congressman Jerry Nadler, would codify same-sex marriage into federal law, effectively forcing states to recognize any marriage performed in another state regardless of laws on their own books.
It would also fully repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which was signed by President Clinton back in 1996 and formally defined marriage as a union between one man and one woman under federal law.
With the fall of Roe v. Wade back in June, the left's paranoia about losing ground when it comes to their radical social and political agenda has reached a fever pitch, resulting in the ongoing push for the "Respect for Marriage Act," which, if we don't act soon, may well become law...
TIME IS RUNNING OUT: With a 50-50 Senate, the left needs just TEN Republican members to bow to pressure: the mainstream media, Big Tech, Hollywood, and the university system are all fighting against us. With so much pressure against conservatives, we need you to send these Senators a powerful message demanding that they stand strong against the left.
That's why we need your help now.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to Republican U.S. Senators across the country, urging them to stand against the left's attempts to reinvent marriage by opposing the so-called "Respect for Marriage Act" when it comes before them for a vote.
Protect natural marriage! Protect the freedoms of individual states!
Put Republican U.S. Senators on notice and let them know that you're watching closely how they vote on the "Respect for Marriage Act."
An Economist/YouGov poll reports that over half of Republicans across the country would disprove of the proposed law.
Out of the 15,000 people who participated in the survey, 57% of Republicans opposed the bill while only 30% were in favor of it.
Democrats supported it by 58% while 18% did not. The highest percentage in support of the bill was among adults under the age of 30, who favored the law 59% to 26%.
“Democrats and younger Americans are most likely to support Congress passing a law that legalizes same sex marriage throughout the U.S.,” the YouGov website states.
As the Senate vote approaches, more Republicans have been speaking out against the bill. Last month, Sen. James Lankford declared he will “absolutely oppose” the “Respect for Marriage Act,” calling it a “weapon” against supporters of traditional marriage.
Sen. Lindsey Graham has repeatedly criticized the bill, and Sen. Kevin Cramer called it a “terrible mistake” if Republicans were to support it. Recently, 2,000 religious leaders sent a letter to members of the U.S. Senate urging them to reject the bill.
LifeSite has also launched a petition to encourage Republican senators to defend natural marriage, which has collected over 8,500 signatures.
Should Obergefell v. Hodges be overturned, 35 states would be able to enforce same-sex “marriage” bans.
