ABSTRACT
The article comments on the Protect Marriage Arizona initiative, a proposal that would safeguard the sanctity of traditional marriage in Arizona. It states that the amendment, which would ban gay marriage, imprints discrimination in the state's constitution and is a major setback for future equality efforts. It points that votes of fair-minded heterosexual Arizonans who truly understand the ramifications of the amendment are needed to defeat the proposed ban.
