There isn't enough support in the senate to pass it. Advocates, though, say they're not worried. They believe gay marriage is not a question of if, but when will it happen. "Do unto others as you'd do unto yourself, it's very simple" says Martin Woulfe, a supporter rallying for equal rights. "These are you neighbors, your relatives, your children, and these who are gay and lesbian deserve the same rights that heterosexual people like myself deserve."
Right now, the bill is short 12 votes. It already passed the house. If the senate does pass it, same-sex marriage will happen. Gov. Pat Quinn (D) said once the bill hits his desk he will sign it.
