SALEM, Oregon: Last week an Oregon-based group, Basic Rights Oregon, launched a campaign called "Marriage Matters" to spur a conversation about same-sex marriage within the state.[1] The campaign follows the defeat of same-sex marriage in Maine. Oregon does not currently allow same-sex marriage, however, Basic Rights Oregon said they are considering moving forward with a 2012 initiative to overturn the 2004 ban on same-sex marriage and legalize it throughout the state.[2][3]
