Dear Precious Blood Network:

A vote on the Federal Marriage Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is expected to occur in the Senate as early as mid-July. The measure, introduced as S.J. Res. 30 by Sen. Wayne Allard (R-Co), reads as follows: "Marriage in the United States shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman. Neither this Constitution, nor the constitution of any state, shall be construed to require that marriage or the legal incidents thereof be conferred upon any union other than the union of a man and a woman."

This proposed amendment leaves legislative decisions on civil unions or domestic relationships up to the state legislatures.

Opponents to the amendment are expected to mount a filibuster, keeping the issue from a vote. Bishop Wilton Gregory and the USCCB offices ask that the following message be sent to your two U.S. Senators:

Do not allow a filibuster on the Federal Marriage Amendment so that the substance of the amendment can be voted on.
