/PRNewswire/ -- The Illinois General Assembly is set to consider and vote on
Senate Bill 10, the Marriage Fairness Act. Forensicon's President and CEO
stated, "As a business owner and CEO of a
based technology firm, I strongly urge the legislature to vote yes on legalizing same sex marriage in
. This measure if passed will make it easier for the region to recruit technology companies and diverse talent to the Chicagoland area. This sends a clear message that our region is tolerant, fair, and values diversity."
"Please listen to the importance of the passage of this act as written through the eyes of an adopted child by reading the letter my daughter wrote. She asked me to share her letter with those inclined to vote against the measure." responded Neubecker.
'Why Illinois should vote to allow my two dads to get married.' – By
Love is important! It doesn't matter who people love, as long as they are happy. Everyone should have the right to marry who he or she wants. You may not like two men being married, but for them, it's normal. My two dads should be able to be married and have the same rights as any married couple. How would you feel if you couldn't marry someone just because the government said you weren't allowed to.
If I loved someone and wasn't allowed to marry them, I would be really sad. My family has taught me that even if you don't agree with someone, you should still be kind and respectful. The government should too. Also, my church tells me that you should treat other people the way you want to be treated.
