Whether marriage in Pennsylvania will stay the union of one man and one woman could very well depend on a vote coming next week. Your senator needs to hear from you before Tuesday’s vote! Please call their office today, and follow up with an email.
Senate Bill SB 707, the Pennsylvania Marriage Protection Amendment, will be voted upon by the Senators of the Judiciary Committee in Harrisburg this Tuesday, March 16. Your senator may be a member of this committee.
Senate Bill 707 would add these 20 words to our state constitution: “Only a union of one man and one woman shall be valid and recognized as a marriage in this Commonwealth.”
Pennsylvania Family Council strongly supports SB 707, which would protect the definition of marriage as the union of husband and wife.
– Please contact your own senator with this simple message: Please vote YES on SB 707.
– If you can, please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and asked them to Pass SB 707.

Note: Depending on when you call, you may not reach the Senator directly. That’s OK. Please ask the staff member to pass on your message in support of SB 707 to the Senator, and request a reply.
P.S. This vote is expected to be very close and is an essential step in seeing marriage protected in Pennsylvania. Please call them today because your call does make a difference. Ask your friends and family to call their senator, too.
P.P.S. You are welcome to come to Harrisburg on Tuesday for the committee vote. It is open to the public and begins at 11:30am in Room 8-E of the East Wing of the Capitol.
