Human Rights Campaign Features Wisconsin Family

The Human Rights Campaign has been working hard to fight the federal ban. This morning they held a press conference featuring Wisconsin parents of a gay son, Joe and Joann Elder. From the HRC press release:
“President Bush and Senator Frist, the American people want you to stop playing divisive politics and lead on issues that matter,” said Joann Elder, who flew in from Wisconsin to appear at today’s event with her husband, Joe. “Writing such discrimination into our national Constitution saddens me because our son is one of millions of wonderful Americans who would have no hope for equal civil rights of marriage. This amendment is divisive … This amendment is unnecessary … This amendment is un-American … Well, I am here today to deliver postcards and to deliver a message: It hurts us that you would discriminate against our son and millions of our good Americans for your own political gain. President Bush and Senator Frist, the American people want you to stop playing divisive politics and lead on issues that matter.”
