If you haven’t done so, watch 19-year-old Iowan Zach Wahls’ dynamic speech about the strength of his family during Iowa’s public forum on House Resolution 6, which would end civil unions in Iowa. Zach has two mothers and in support of his gay moms, he said, “We just hope for equal and fair treatment from our government…” The Eagle Scout, ace engineering student, and small business owner went on to say, “If I were your son, Mr. chairman, I believe I would make you very proud. My family isn’t so different from yours. A sense of family comes from the commitment we make to each other… it comes from the love that binds us.” The House went on to pass Joint Resolution 6, approving an amendment to go before voters which would ban all same-sex unions in the state. If it passes, it will codify discrimination in the Iowan Constitution. And that would be a shame.
