> If LD 433 gets 2/3 majorities in the House, it will go to the voters in a statewide referendum.
>  
> LD 433 SAYS:
>  "RESOLUTION: Proposing an Amendment to the Constitution of Maine To Explicitly Prohibit Discrimination Based on the Sex of an Individual."
>  
> Recent arguments used by the opposition have been:
>  
> Opposition: "Women don't need more protections against sex discrimination."
> Our Response: "Perhaps certain privileged women don't need more protections, but others do.  And what about fairness and equality as a constitutional principle for everyone?"
>  
> Opposition: "Equality for women will lead to more abortions."
> Our Response: "The link between equal rights and abortion rights is a fear that persists - despite 40 years of legal abortions, in the absence of an ERA."
>  
> WHAT YOU CAN DO
> CALL YOUR Republican State Representative,
> and the Representatives listed BELOW.

> WHAT YOU CAN SAY
