Letter - Westrom will stand up for valuesThis November, Minnesotans will decide on a constitution amendment to define marriage as being a union between one man and one woman.
To the editor:
This November, Minnesotans will decide on a constitution amendment to define marriage as being a union between one man and one woman. For many, this was a long-awaited opportunity to decide an issue of great importance for us and our families. As chairman of the House Civil Law Committee, Torrey Westrom was instrumental in giving us this opportunity, as it had to pass through his committee.
Throughout the country and around the world, we are seeing continuous attacks on the institution of marriage. Just recently, lawmakers in France announced plans to ban the words “mother” and “father” from French law. Official documents could no longer use those words. This came as part of a push for same-sex adoptions and to redefine marriage as being between anyone instead of just a man and a woman.
I’m glad that Torrey stands up for our values and voted to let us decide to keep marriage between a man and a woman in Minnesota.
Stand with Torrey Westrom and vote for him for the Minnesota Senate on November 6.
