North Carolina Campaign Against Discriminatory Amendment Releases New Ads | The Campaign to Protect All NC Families has released two new ads opposing North Carolina’s Amendment One, which would ban not just same-sex marriage, but civil unions and domestic partnerships as well. In the first, “Melissa,” a mother expresses her concern for her child’s health insurance, a possible consequence of invalidated domestic partnerships. The second ad features the testimony of a victim of domestic abuse whose protection order could be rescinded by the amendment because she was not married to her partner. Watch them:
Proponents of the discriminatory measure held a religious rally in its favor on Friday in Raleigh, where David Gibbs of the Christian Law Association described a vote against Amendment One as “treason in God’s court.” Early voting is already underway, but the official vote is May 8, just two weeks away.
