Freedom to Marry Launches New Television Spot: ‘It’s Time for Marriage’

Beginning this Sunday, a new national television advertisement by Freedom to Marry will begin airing on morning network news programs in Washington, D.C.

The 30 second ad states, “One nation, indivisible – except if you’re gay. In 19 states, gay couples and their children share in the protections that only the freedom to marry provides. In the others, they are banned from marrying. They’re taxed unfairly, denied Social Security and parenting rights, and can lose a family home when their loved one dies. Every day of denial means real harms to real families. It’s time to end marriage discrimination.”

Freedom to Marry founder and president Evan Wolfson said on Friday, September 26th, “The ad underscores the human costs of prolonging marriage discrimination. Every day of denial is a day of real and needless injury, indignity, and injustice for too many families across the country – and time matters. America is ready for the freedom to marry, 40 lower court rulings have affirmed the freedom to marry, even opponents are saying it’s time to bring the country to national resolution – and it is, indeed, time.”
