It was a sad day when Prop 8, the California Marriage Protection Act, which reads: “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.” was passed and overturned the previous ruling allowing gay marriages. Under the new ammendment previous unions between same-sex couples will still be recognized but no new marriage liscences will be issued to gay couples. The NO ON 8 campaign ws supported by all sorts of figures who believe in equality of rights for all. Cindy McCain (opposing her husbands views) came out to support the NO ON 8 cause showing that equality isn't limited to democratic sides, that she too believes in the right for gay marriage. She posed in the campaign ads but unfortunately even with her help there just wasn't enough support out there voting against Popostion 8.
