An ad that will be released this coming week by the Human Rights Campaign was sparked by the recent defeat of the marriage amendment in Minnesota and legalization of same-sex marriage in Maine, Maryland and Washington, the Star Tribune reported.
The idea behind the Human Rights Campaign ad is to strengthen support for same-sex marriage as other states and the U.S. Supreme Court continue to grapple with the issue.
The Supreme Court is considering to take up constitutional challenges to California's law that bans same-sex marriage, as well as the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as being between one man and one woman.
Minnesotans voted "no" against the marriage amendment on Election Day. The "no" votes collected represented roughly 52.4 percent of the ballots, compared to 47.6 percent for "yes" ballots.
The ad, narrated by Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman, reportedly says voting results in the four states standing up for same-sex marriage delivered "a mandate for full equality."
