Amendment of Article 972 in the Civil Code is the most direct and effective legislative measure. It provides equal protections of the basic civil rights of homosexual couples, and does not undermine the current marriage system for heterosexual couples at all.
Refuse the legislation of a "Separate but equal" law. Separation is not equal.
Special laws often grant protection to specific groups who need extra welfare to achieve a genuine equality, such as the disables, the aboriginal people, and children. However, a special civic union law for same-sex marriage is to prevent them from applying to the existing legal system for marriage, and to give them lower levels of rights. This is undoubtedly worsening the situations for LGBTQ people, not improving at all.
Urge political parties to take the responsibility for reforms and to promote human rights
We urge Taiwan's parties to be responsible for reforms for human rights, especially same-sex marriage issue, instead of shirking it. Taiwan needs progressive parties that keeps the promises of defending human rights, not parties that compromises all the time to the old and conservative generations.
法律不該為偏見服務。身在海外的我們，也會和島內的朋友們持續走到實現婚姻平權的那一天。All Rights for All，我們在世界各地，支持修正民法，力挺婚姻平權！
The law cannot tolerate nor serve for prejudices. We, overseas Taiwanese, will stand in solidarity with people in Taiwan until the realization of marriage equality. All Rights for All! We are supporting the amendment of the Civil Code and upholding marriage equality, from all over the world.
