Abstract:
A group called N.C. Family Policy Council is advocating a state constitutional amendment including the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). If approved, the amendment would make same-sex marriages illegal and homosexual partners would be denied many rights granted heterosexual couples. There is a debate if the passing of SB 106, which will appear on the ballot next spring and outlaw same-sex marriage, contradicts Article 1 of the State Constitution which declares equal rights for all citizens.
