I agree, Stacey -- but another example of the poorest legislation is the recent one requiring that ladies have an ultrasound and look at the fetus and be told what they're seeing, etc. and then sent home to think about it before they can have an abortion.  Government shouldn't be mandating choices on people's lifestyles and personal decisions that have nothing to do with governing a state or country.
It's disgusting.

Dear writers,

I'm writing to voice my concern over the NC State Legislators' largely GOP-led initiative to place a constitutional amendment banning Same-Sex Marriage in North Carolina on the Republican primary ballot. The initiative in essence excludes Democratic voters from being heard in what will become a constitutional amendment in North Carolina.

I urge you to read up on the initiative and to contact your representatives to let them know your position on the issue.

I've written to Republican Representative Paul Stam of southern Wake County who is largely responsible for this, and have let him know my position.

You can read my full email to Rep. Stam here:

Thank you for your time, and thank you for reading.

Sincerely,

Stacey Cochran
