"The November ballot in California will include Proposition 8, a ballot measure that, if passed, would eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry. The measure would, in effect, overturn the recent Supreme Court decision that was supported by the Amicus Brief mentioned above.

In light of the fact that CPA joined with APA and the other mental health associations in filing the Amicus Brief, and upon the recommendation of the Government Affairs Committee of CPA, the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors recently voted that CPA take a formal position of opposition to Proposition 8. The CPA Board of Directors and the Executive Committee asked that we inform the full membership of this decision. We ask that you consider this information as you make your decisions in the November election. "

--The California Psychological Association on Proposition 8, the initiative to ban same-sex marriage in California
