Betrayal of same sex couples.

I will not be voting for Mitt Romney because of his despicable betrayal of same-sex couples and their families in Massachusetts.  When he campaigned for the Senate in 1994, and again for Governor in 2002, Mitt Romney claimed to support gay rights. But after the state Supreme Court ruled that it was unconstitutional to bar same-sex couples from marrying in 2003, Romney began pushing for a constitutional convention to overturn that ruling. The Boston Globe revealed today that as Governor of MA, he refused to allow the state birth certificate form to be amended for babies born to same-sex couples, instructing that the words “father” or “mother ” be crossed out and “second parent” inserted by hand. I have two gay siblings, and I will not forget Mitt Romney’s betrayal of them.
