a free society, and freedom means freedom for

The commercial concludes with the message,
"We agree. Don't amend the Constitution."
The commercial will target cities in the swing

press conference in Washington on Wednesday
announcing the release of the commercial.
"The battle to defeat the Federal Marriage
Amendment will be joined by Republicans from
around our nation — conservative and moderate,
straight and gay, black and white, rich and poor,"
During an interview after returning to Dallas,
Halbrook said that she is confident that the adver-
tisement will have an impact.
"I hope it will be every effective/' said
Halbrook, who added that the advertising effort
will be accompanied by "hard lobbying."
