Gay Marriage Term Paper




all the groups in the U.S. today, I believe there is one that possibly has the hardesttime getting their point across. They work hard, day in and day out trying to

ind ways to expresstheir ideas but they cannot seem to get any more support and i

ining marriage.In the United States o

America, we have a democratic

each state will allow same-sexmarriage. As o

January 6, 2010, states that allow it are Connecticut, Iowa, New Hampshire,Massachusetts, and Vermont; Cali

ornia, New Mexico, New York, Rhode Island, andWashington DC do not allow same-sex marriage but do recognize marriages legally per

Tip: This section should include your thesis sentence and will determine if you are for or against gay marriage.

Seed - Starting Sentence Option 2: [Unfortunately/Fortunately], gay marriage is being legalized in some areas. While it’s a [controversial/difficult/questionable] decision, the ruling is one that some, including myself, are [happy/upset] about. Gay marriage is [state your belief].

  • Banning gay marriage is discrimination and classification of human beings based on value.
  • According to the 14th Amendment in the US Constitution, all people are to be considered equal, which would also apply to marriage.
