Civil rights attorney Gloria Allred
opposes Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul
because they oppose gay marriage.
Referring to the GOP presidential
candidates during an appearance on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight,
Allred told host Piers Morgan that she opposed them because they
oppose gay marriage and giving a woman the right to choose.
“I'm not a person who is going to
vote for any of the potential Republican nominees for the presidency
of the United States. … For the reason that they are against the
right to choose abortion. … And also because they are not willing
to say that gays and lesbians should enjoy marriage equality. And
that is an affront to their dignity. It is an affront to the respect
that gay and lesbian individuals have a right to enjoy. To say that
they should have some other status like civil unions, rather than
“So, I'm against all those Republican
nominees because they won't afford equal rights,” Allred added.
“I have a shocking thing to tell
you,” Morgan said. “I agree with you.” (The video is embedded

(While Ron Paul has said that the
government should get out of the business of regulating marriage,
he's also said that he's personally opposed to gay marriage.)
