Opponents of the legislation, including conservative Republicans, have argued that the law must be stopped because it constitutes another assault on the sanctity of the family. Analysts say the Bill puts Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in the hot seat. ‘I think it's a slam-dunk that he's going to have to veto the Bill and hope that the anger in the gay community doesn't spill over into other groups,’ said one.
