Bring Pennsylvania H.B. 1349 to the Floor

Preserve democracy, LET THE PEOPLE DECIDE!!

The most important, fundamental part of democracy is that the people decide. Unfortunately, some in the Judicial Branch of government feel they know better than the people, especially when it comes to social issues. Time after time, we have witnessed radical judges stripping the power given to the people.

Currently, 31 US states have embedded in their constitutions that marriage is defined as a union between one man and one woman. When the people have been given a chance to decide, they have voted 31 out of 33 times in favor of marriage being between one man and one woman. 

On this issue alone, Pennsylvania has spent much time in the news. Lawsuit after lawsuit has been filed in Pennsylvania courts as an attempt to get judges to make these important decisions.

That is not unfair!

Pennsylvanians are in favor of marriage between one man and one woman. Please help Pennsylvanians have their voice.  Stand with them as they fight to make a constitutional amendment defining marriage as a legal union between one man and one woman. With your help, this can happen.

Pennsylvania House Bill 1349 has been proposed by PA State Representative Daryl Metcalfe and co-sponsored by 22 other State Representatives. H.B. 1349 would make an amendment to the PA state constitution that would read:

“Marriage is the legal union of only one man and one woman as husband and wife and no other legal union that is treated as marriage or the substantial equivalent thereof shall be valid or recognized.”

If you believe this in your heart to be true, will you help?

The first step in calling for this referendum is near. We need to get the Republican controlled House of Representatives to take the bill out of committee and vote on it. The longer this bill sits in committee, the longer Pennsylvanians must wait for their voices to be heard. We must not leave this issue to Philadelphia lawyers and judges.

With your help, we can get this bill to the House floor for a vote.

Sign this petition to House Majority Leader Mike Turzai telling him to “let the people decide, not judges and lawyers from Philadelphia.”

Rep. Turzai, let the people decide!

Representative Turzai:

I support the right of Pennsylvanians to have the final decision as to the definition of marriage in the Commonwealth. In this fine democracy, the right thing to do is give everyone an opportunity to vote on this issue by holding a ballot referendum.

House Bill 1349 would give Pennsylvanians an opportunity to make a constitutional amendment, reading:

“Marriage is the legal union of only one man and one woman as husband and wife and no other legal union that is treated as marriage or the substantial equivalent thereof shall be valid or recognized.”

The majority of Pennsylvanians are in favor of this text, but will not have the opportunity to weigh in the on the matter if H.B. 1349 continues to sit in committee.

Judicial verdicts should not make this decision for Pennsylvanians. We urge you to move this process along. Please allow House Bill 1349 to come to the House floor for a vote.

At this point, you and you alone are standing in the way of allowing Pennsylvanians to have a decision on the definition of marriage. Bring the bill to the floor. Let the people decide!
