Tammy Baldwin: “I hope that when we wake up tomorrow morning

we are ready to work, ready to fight for our middle class, ready to keep our promises to our seniors, ready to make sure that everyone has a fair shot, ready to make our country stronger, more prosperous, and more equal.
Ready to do what Wisconsinites have done for generations: stand together and move forward. Thank you.”

- closing words of Tammy Baldwin, Wisconsin’s newest U.S. Senator, Wisconsin’s 1st woman U.S. Senator, and the nation’s 1st openly gay U.S. Senator.

"…after gays and lesbians in Massachusetts won the right to marry in 2003, Governor Romney wouldn’t allow

 the Registry of Vital Records and Statistics to revise birth certificate forms for babies born to same-sex couples.

The plan was to have the box for “father,” for example, relabeled “father or second parent.” But according to documents obtained by Waas, Romney rejected the plan, demanding the agency continue using old forms.

Romney then demanded hospitals get permission from his office each time a child was born to a same sex-couple in order to cross out, with a pen, the label “father” or “mother,” and write-in, with a pen, “second parent.” (Romney also required gay male parents to get a court order before any birth certificate was issued.)”

from "Romney: ‘Some gays are actually having children.  It’s not right on paper.  It’s not right in fact."
