Will Obama Say ‘I Do’?

By Erikalust

So far 33.000 people including celebrities like Anne Hathaway, Ellen DeGeneres, Martin Sheen… have already signed the petition to legalise gay marriage which will be sent to President Obama:

Will Obama say ‘I do’?

Dear Mr. President,

In February, you made a powerful statement about the law.

We ask you now for your leadership on ending the exclusion of same-sex couples from marriage — an exclusion that harms millions of Americans each day. Whether to end discrimination in marriage is a question America has faced before, and faces again today.

With so many Americans talking it through in heartfelt conversations, it is a question that calls for clarity from the president.

Mr. President, the time to end exclusion from marriage is now. We ask you to complete your journey and join us, and the majority of Americans, who support the freedom to marry.

In the US, 41 states still prohibit same-sex marriages, and below you can see a global map of the situation (dark blue is where it is legal, light blue is where civil unions are allowed etc)

Will Obama say ‘I do’?

Sometimes we might forget that homosexuals are still fighting for their rights since, for example in Barcelona and many other places, it’s not a taboo anymore, but we shouldn’t forget it’s still against the law to marry someone of the same se, and that’s just outrageous.

So wherever you are, don’t forget it…

You can know more about the initiative and sign the petition here.
