The Conan the Barbarian actress has urged all Americans to put pressure on their government officials to ensure what she sees as a basic right for all couples.
"It should be across the board. It's really absurd that it's not a right and the idea that it takes away from people's sanctity of marriage, I think we should just watch Jerry Springer and see how those people feel about the sanctity about their marriage," McGowan told Fox 411's Pop Tarts.
"If people rise up, the government follows. You have to put pressure on your local representatives, your city council, then your congressmen, then your senators. You have to understand all this is a phone call away, even an email away, and they really respond to that."
McGowan recently revealed that she grew up around a group of drag queens, who she met after running away from home at the age of 13.
"We didn't always know where our next meal was coming from, but there was so much camaraderie and love. Not to mention, those girls could paint a face, and I learned how because of them," she said of the experience.
