Thousands of gay and lesbian couples all across the state are doing the hard work of building strong families, and yet these committed couples lack the tools they need to take care of and be responsible for each other. Civil unions will change that.
Civil unions will provide Colorado couples with critical legal protections and responsibilities. Protections like access to health insurance coverage, ability to make medical and end-of-life decisions, right to live together in a nursing home. Responsibilities like adoption and inheritance.
Basic legal protections for committed couples shouldn't be a partisan issue, and in many states, it hasn't been. Hundreds of Republican legislators have voted in support of the legal recognition of gay and lesbian couples.
Let's show our Republican Representatives and Senators that equality for LGBT Coloradans is not a partisan issue.
