Right now, the U.S. Senate is preparing for a vote that could
have major consequences for gays and lesbians across America. If
they approve President Bush’s nomination of Judge Leslie
Southwick to the Federal bench, they’ll give tremendous power to
a man who once helped remove a woman’s 8-year-old biological
child from her custody in part because the mother was a lesbian.
I hope you’ll join me in speaking out at:
Southwick even signed an unnecessary additional brief in the
case saying that losing her child was the possible consequence
of the mother’s sexual “choice.” Excuse me? This kind of
misinformed bigotry has no place in our nation’s highest courts.
Southwick’s appointment would be for life.
