Marriage Protection Act introduced in Senate

Every time the people are allowed to vote on this issue, they equivocally reaffirm that marriage is between one man and one woman.

On Wednesday, Republican Senator Roger Wicker introduced the Marriage Protection Act, a measure aimed at amending the Constitution to declare that marriage is a union between one man and one woman.

Wicker says the move is necessary because “activist judges are attempting to redefine one of our nation’s most sacred institutions.” The Mississippi lawmaker notes that “19 states have passed laws and 26 states have amended their constitution to protect traditional marriage.”

“Rather than giving unelected judges the opportunity to legislate from the bench, this amendment will reaffirm what most Americans believe … marriage is between a man and a woman,” Wicker says.
