Respect for Marriage Act

A year later, proposed DOMA repeal bill keeps gaining new co-sponsors

“One year after the introduction of the Respect for Marriage Act, we have seen enormous momentum for ending the ‘gay exception’ created by DOMA, which treats America’s legally married same-sex couples – including servicemembers risking their lives for our safety – as strangers under federal law.”

Broad coalition launches to repeal DOMA

51% of voters oppose DOMA while only 34% favor it, according to a March 2011 poll by HRC and Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research.
