Amendment Banning Marriage Equality In Indiana

Written by 

 

Whereas Oregon could become the next state to legalize marriage equality and that the things also advance in Michigan, in Indiana, on the contrary, a constitutional amendment against marriage equality could be voted by the legislators the next year.

In 2011, this amendment was approved and there thus remains nothing any more but the vote which should take place the next year or in 2014. The voter referendum would then be in 2014.

Supporters of this amendment, like Rep. Eric Turner, are trustful and think that the ban will pass but the things however could be closer because a poll showed in October that while 48% of the voters are favorable to this amendment, 45% are opposited to it.

As a result, Rick Sutton, executive director of Indiana Equality Action, stays optimistic and told WIBC that he expects the amendment to come up early in the legislative session and to pass, but thinks that voters will reject it.
