Legalize Gay Marriage in California

35 Signatures Goal: 241,153

TAKE ACTION: On February 7, 2012, the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Perry v. Brown, and in a 2-1 vote, chose to uphold Judge Vaughn Walker's previous ruling that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional. Proponents of Proposition 8 petitioned for an en banc rehearing of the case, asking for the case to be retried by an 11-judge panel. On June 5, 2012, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals denied the request for an en banc rehearing. The Court has now put its decision on hold for 90 days to allow time for an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. Anti-gay activists are now expected to appeal the case to the Supreme Court, who will decide whether or not to grant review. Should the Supreme Court decide not to review the case, then the freedom to marry will be restored to the state of California. Law states that to get an initiative onto the ballot, approximately 240,000 signatures are required for the initiative to even be considered. That is a mere 3% of California. 3% of a great, forward-thinking state that can finally offer homosexuals a second chance at equal rights, if it can show its government how serious it is about this matter. Gay marriage will no longer be illegal should Supreme Court decide not to review its case; however, only its citizens can make it a legal reality. Let our voices be heard.
