Indiana voters will not have a say on the proposed constitutional ban on same sex marriage. 

The senate did not try and amended HJR-3 and add the controversial second sentence back in, that many opponents feared would ban civil unions.          

Jennifer Fisher, a local businesswoman who is in a same sex relationship,   shared her story with the senate earlier this week.

“This legislation when it came forward was such a distraction and such a harm because it made me feel unwelcome in my own state,” said Fisher. 

“It was exciting to see that they left the second sentence out because I think a lot of people understood that there was some potential harm associated with that second sentence,” said Fisher. 

Dr. Peter Scaer isn’t joining in on the celebration.

“I'm disappointed because I wanted this to go in front of the people,” said Dr. Scaer. 

Scaer says he feels strongly that children should be raised by a man and a woman.   

“Marriage is a union between a man and a woman. It’s the only relationship that can produce a child and every child deserves a mom and a dad,” said Scaer. 

“To me marriage is about love, it’s about two people coming together in  adult status and proclaiming that love,” said Fisher.
