Several Republicans are included in a new TV ad calling on lawmakers not to repeal New Hampshire's 2-year-old gay marriage law.

The bipartisan group Standing Up for New Hampshire Families produced the 30-second ad, which was released on Wednesday.

“We believe freedom means freedom for everyone,” Republican activist Maxine Morse says in the ad. “Every single person.”

Others featured in the video add: “Don't take away the freedom to marry. We don't pass laws to undermine families, that's just not New Hampshire.”

“We never use government to take freedom away from our people. Politicians should let our neighbors live their lives. Leave them alone.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

Lawmakers are expected to consider House bill 437, which would repeal the law, when they reconvene on January 4.

With New Hampshire holding its presidential primary within the same week, the issue has already seeped into the race for the GOP nomination.

Rick Perry in October praised GOP lawmakers' efforts to repeal the law, while Mitt Romney said he supports repeal of the law when a gay Vietnam veteran asked his position last week.
