Proposition 8 would make marriage legal in California only if it's between a man and a woman. Supporters say that if it doesn't pass, gay marriage will be on the curriculum in public schools. Opponents call that a misreading of existing law and insist that passage will deprive gay and lesbian couples of their right to be happy. Recent polls suggest that the race is tightening. We hear the latest ads and arguments from both sides.
FROM THIS EPISODE
The State Supreme Court has declared that the Constitution gives same sex couples the right to be married. Proposition 8 would nullify that decision and limit marriage to one man and one woman. Early polls suggested it was likely to lose, but the "yes" side has been gaining, with big money and advertising that is not overtly based on religious doctrine.
