Calif. Groups Take Aim at Gay-Marriage Ban
By LISA LEFF, Associated Press Writer Wed May 25, 9:43 PM ET
SAN FRANCISCO - About 200 religious, labor and civil rights groups
announced Wednesday that they are joining forces to try to defeat a
proposed constitutional amendment that would take domestic-partner
rights away from gay couples in California.
Members of the Equality for All coalition said they were acting even
before the measure qualifies for the ballot because of what they termed
the proposal's drastic implications for many kinds of nontraditional
families, gay or straight.
