We Need The American Version Of This Irish Marriage Equality Ad STAT!

Here’s a one-minute Irish ad that shows just why civil unions suck. And while the recent announcement from the U.S. Department ensures that no child of same-sex parents will ever get denied the right to visit and make medical decisions for them, we still need some heartstring-pulling ads showing the many other ways that the so-called Defense of Marriage Act and marriage inequality still hurt adults and children. Maybe one showing a sick partner who can’t get employee medical benefits or another one showing a kid in trouble who can’t get helped by his lesbian mom.
