Freedom To Marry has launched a new marriage equality ad in Alabama:
Images of two women and their daughter – at a pizza joint, at church – flash across the screen as one of the women talks about the Alabama’s refusal to consider them married. “Alabama does not recognize our marriage,” she says in a TV ad that begins airing in the Birmingham and Montgomery TV markets today. “Everyone wants to believe that if you do what you’re supposed to do, you will be taken care of. But we don’t have that safeguard.” That could change on Feb. 9, when a federal court order striking down Alabama’s ban on same-sex marriage is set to take effect. Or sooner, if the Atlanta-based 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals lifts the “stay” that U.S. District Judge Callie V.S. “Ginny” Granade imposed to give the state a chance to appeal.
