A national group which promotes marriage equality on Friday released a television ad urging the Supreme Court to consider one or more of the five cases challenging state bans currently on its docket.

The ad, titled It's Time, will air on Sunday during morning news shows in the Washington, D.C. market and on cable news next week.

Justices will hold a closed-door meeting on Monday to discuss the cases.

“One nation, indivisible – except if you're gay,” a female narrator says in the 30-second clip. In the 30 states where gay couples are excluded from marriage “they are taxed unfairly, denied Social Security and parenting rights, and can lose a family home when their loved one dies,” the narrator adds.

Evan Wolfson, president of Freedom to Marry, said the ad “underscores the human costs of prolonging marriage discrimination.”

“Every day of denial is a day of real and needless injury, indignity and injustice for too many families across the country – and time matters. America is ready for the freedom to marry, 40 lower court rulings have affirmed the freedom to marry, even opponents are saying it's time to bring the country to national resolution – and it is, indeed, time.”
