In a statement today to the Raleigh News & Observer, President Barack Obama opposed Amendment One, a constitutional amendment on the May 8, 2012, North Carolina primary ballot that would ban relationship recognitions and threaten protections for the state’s unmarried couples. Today’s statement represents the first from the President clarifying his position on Amendment One in the key battleground state of North Carolina.
Protect All NC Families, the coalition effort to educate North Carolinians of the harms of Amendment One, praised the President’s statement against Amendment One.
“We applaud the President’s opposition to Amendment One,” said Jeremy Kennedy, campaign manager for Protect All NC Families. “The President’s support is proof that Amendment One, which could take health care away from children, put domestic violence laws in jeopardy, in addition to hurting all unmarried couples in North Carolina, has far-reaching, negative consequences.
