Last week, Member of Parliament (MP) Louisa Wall's bill to legislate for marriage equality in New Zealand was drawn from the ballot. The day before this occurred I had informed a family member that if he ever saw me on the evening news, it would most likely be as part of a march in support of marriage equality. Which pretty much explains where I stand on the issue *grin*
I know not everyone in New Zealand is a proponent of marriage equality. And their reasons are many and varied. I just happen to disagree with them. And to that end I have emailed my view to my MP in the hope he will do what I consider to be fair and right for all. Because passing this Bill into law won't take away anything from anyone, but instead give the right to marry to a group of people who should have it.
