Lt. Governor Lawton on the Ban

I really like the way Lieutenant Governor Barbara Lawton talked about the civil unions and marriage ban at a President's Day gathering for the Jefferson/Dodge Counties Democrat Party. She invokes the commonality of our aspirations for love and family.

Here's an excerpt from the Watertown Daily Times (I think the full article was already archived):
Times are changing and life is not as simple as it used to be and the Republicans want Democrats to be distracted and fight wars over difficult issues like abortion, gay marriage or stem cell research, Lawton said.

She added almost everyone knows someone who is facing difficult life issues that could be saved if stem cell research was supported.

"Or we know somebody from the gay and lesbian community who has every right to dream of committed relationships and a family like everybody else in this country," Lawton said.
