Why Iowa?

Today, the Iowa House voted 63-37 to approve Joint Resolution 6.  Joint Resolution 6 calls for a constitutional amendment to recognize only marriages between a man and woman.  Joint Resolution 6 would prevent both same-sex unions and civil partnerships in the state. 

Iowa is one of the few states in our nation where same-sex couples can marry legally. 

Joint Resolution 6 will remove the equal rights that have been afforded to same-sex couples in Iowa since April of 2009.

The following video contains a speech by 19-year-old Zach Wahls.  Zach and his two moms live in Iowa.  Zach spoke for equality...and for his family.  I just thought I'd share.
