Two powerful statements against Amendment One

Over the weekend, former President Bill Clinton joined the fight against Amendment One, with a robocall advising voters that Tuesday’s ballot initiative stands to damage the state’s reputation and its efforts to attract new jobs.

But perhaps an  even more persuasive argument came Saturday from North Carolina’s family law professors, who believes the amendment’s passage could mean that children would lose health care and unmarried women and children could lose domestic violence protections.

“Family law professors from across the state have been so actively opposed to Amendment One and have been speaking in so many venues because as teachers of Family Law, we are so concerned when the law of the family isn’t clear. At a minimum, this amendment injects so much uncertainty into issues around the family,” says Wake Forest University law professor Suzanne Reynolds.
