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.
